Taste of Spring!

When we were in Charleston we had a delicious taste of spring! Trees were blooming, petals were in the air, flowers where all around. 

The sun even felt strong, which makes such a difference in how I feel physically, if the sun is out and strong, I just feel happier and more alive.

The seasons there are over 2 months ahead of us here in New York, with a short winter and very rare frost.  Spring still feels far away here in Brooklyn, we are still wearing puffy coats, hats and scarves for outside, BUT....

to my delight, as I was poking around in our yard upon our return I discovered that we have some springtime visitors on the way,

and even a few in bloom already!!! Every year my early blooming Hellebores make me so happy, showing a happy blossom just when I need it most!
