signs of spring in March

The sun comes out and we think spring is here to stay.  Deep in our heart, we know, we totally know, it’s just a tease.  More rain is yet to come.  But for now, and maybe because of this, we know we better go outside and hang out.  Warm our shoulders and our backs.  Sit down and enjoy the sun rays touching our bodies.  Enjoy the birds and the flowers waking up too.  It is a beautiful time this one, here in our Portland of the West Coast.

Mason bees have also hatched from the little house we have.

And other changes are sure signs that spring is on its way.

We had beautiful blue skies the other day.  The sun shining, the kids bare feet, outside playing all day.  We even had our first lunch and dinner outside.

But the rain is back now.  Just a little longer.  We all knew that, right deep in our hearts, we knew she was coming.  We knew these sunny, springy days were just that.  A little something to keep us going until the real sunshine comes.  I enjoyed it thoroughly and I am enjoying the spring showers as well.

    Wow, look at that grass – wasn’t it just covered with a bit of snow?! Bare feet – oh my, we have weeks to go before that! Enjoy.

    • Hi Katie. We had a little bit of snow in February that stayed for few days. But in our Portland, is not common to get that beautiful white fluffy carpet.

      It has been cold though, and yes, I am not sure the kids can actually feel cold. For them, “sun” means “summer” and it means “bare feet” and “picnic” and “all things outside.” It’s great!

    I guess we need the rain to really appreciate the sunshine right? We have rain coming in too, but it won’t be long before the sun shines day after day.
    Have a great weekend.
