The Quest of Spring
We are enjoying some glorious weather. The kind that makes you forget it could turn around and snow next week. That's how the weather rolls here in Kentucky.
I gathered my friends to search for a special sign of spring. A sign I have heard others say they have spotted, but not me. It was hard to keep everyone focused on the task at hand. So much to see....and smell.
My progress was halted when I spotted a few buds, here and there.
My other friend got off course when he spotted a body of water. He always takes a dip, no matter the temperature or time of year.
Finally I spied some March Lilies. Perhaps you call them Daffodils, but around these parts they go by their colloquial moniker.
Much to my chagrin, they haven't bloomed just yet. Looks like another farm walk is in my future.
"I recall looking out the window at the Redbuds, Dogwoods, Daffodils, Irises, and Pom-Pom bushes, knowing exactly what heaven must look like: a spring day in Kentucky."
