Spring is here.

 I love Spring and not just because of the newness of life beginning again after a winter sleep, but for the relief of winter being over. I love fall, when the leaves start changing and there's a crispness to the air, but knowing the dark days that are ahead of me makes me shiver and not in the cold way. I suffer from terrible depression in the winter months. When Spring comes and the days start getting lighter earlier, the long winter days are coming to an end and my dark days of depression are too.  Spring is always filled with hope for me.

 When I see new growth in my garden and wake up to the birds singing through my open window. ( I love sleeping with my window open) my whole body seems to take a deep breath and as I exhale my whole being seems to untangle itself and I feel the real me starting to come to the surface. I don't like the person I become when I'm depressed. I don't like her at all. When those first clues of Spring come round, I feel it's almost like an awakening for the real me. I just wish I could hold onto her during those dark times. Which reminds me of the saying "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride"

Anyhoo, I love to take walks every day with my dog and with my handy dandy camera phone, I can take pictures along the way.
Chelsea and Tucker. Tuck Tuck leading the way.

New growth on my japanese maple. I love this picture.

These tulips I planted around 7 years ago. I think the originals had babies. 
A photo of my flowering plum.
found these out on my walk
cute little things

Hope you enjoyed a tagging along on my walk with me.


  1. We finally have blooms on trees! Winters just seem to get longer every year. Not sure why. Needed some healthy vitamin D to help with the winter blues. :) Yeah spring!

    1. I can't believe it but I think I may have some roses blooming here in the next few weeks! they don't usually come up until June, but since we've had such a mild spring, up they're coming! We had such a short winter this year. Yeah, I'm done with winter this year..bring on Spring!!


I love to hear your comments or just say "Hi!"....
