Dreaming Of Spring

'No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.'  -  Hal Borland

Dreaming of Spring...

Dirt under my fingernails.

Bare feet.   

The screen door slamming. 

Watching the color green pop up in the woods.

The smell of tomato vines, basil and freshly dug dirt.

Feeling grass between my toes.

The sun warming my skin.

Woodpeckers loudly pecking for insects.

Flip flops flopping.

Birds chirping a happy morning song.

The smell of fresh rain.

Lawnmowers running.

Sitting with a good book and a tall glass of iced tea on my back porch.

Hummingbirds visiting.

The wonderful smell and cheerful color of spring flowers.

What are your dreams of spring?
Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday and the class Be Still.  My image was processed in Lightroom using Kim's preset organic.  
Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Have a great week!!
