Sun Shine & Spring Is On It’s Way


Oh how I love sun shine  it makes me happy . I love the sun sets and the sun rises  and when the sun comes out after a snow storm or a  rain storm , I love how the sun reflects on everything and glitters on a frosty morning , how the clouds shimmer with the sun inside them or on the edge of them , I love how the sun shines pinks , oranges and purples across the sky's , how the sun makes every thing look and feel so much happier when it is out .

                                 Yup you guess it  … I am joining Karen and others in Sunlit Sunday !

Sunlit Sunday

     The sun has been shining for two days and it has warmed up as has the land  , what little snow we got has gone            again  .

                                 My Geraniums and Cactus are blooming and they look  even prettier when the sun shines on them .

I was walking about out side this morning .. yes in my jammies it was quite pleasant and mild  and I heard a sound I have been waiting for , the sound of spring  and my favorite bird ,  at first I just thought it was my ears playing tricks on me cause I want to hear them so badly .

But then not only did I hear him I saw him ..   Yup Mr. Robin chirped and I saw him in our crab apple tree feasting on the berries . I spoke to him and welcomed him home and this is the look I got lol !  I was soo happy to see him .

                    I love that the sun rises earlier and sets later now to .  So with the sun shining  , the spring flowers poking above ground and the Robins return chirping and singing their pretty song  and even the rain we are to get this evening all signs  that spring is closer now and  I am a happy camper !

                                                                                      Until next time

I am feeling spring coming too but for some reason kind of pessimistic about the event. It is so early and as experience tells me some really bad weather could come to the Bluegrass state. Guess I better change my thoughts.LOL

Gail said...

Great pictures and I think you're right...spring has arrived.

Miggs does look happy. I love geraniums and Christmas cactus. I have a geranium blooming, but my cactus has "done its thing" for the year. I love robins, too. Spring is coming.

Just one gorgeous coloured flower can be enough to make one happy in the cold days.
Oh how exciting for you to hear the Robin, it's definitely Spring - enjoy the special days ahead!
On my side of the world we are in late summer and will be moving into Autumn - I'm in New Zealand!

Lovely. I'm really enjoying the early and later light, too. So encouraging to me...
Hope you have a good week!

It's such a thrill to hear the first birdsong at the end of winter. It signals hope and springtime!
Lovely pictures of all the growth and blooming around you. Have a good week!

The flowers- especially the purple ones, look lovely!

Happy Sunday to you. We are having a beautiful day here too; our snow is gone and it almost feels like spring(don't want to get my hopes us because it is so early yet). Yesterday was cloudy and very windy in the afternoon. I'm thankful that it is so nice today and I took Hunter out on a walk.
Hope your week starts out perfectly.
Hugs, Noreen

Miggs is so handsome in the sunshine!

The signs of spring are always exciting, signaling as they do the near-end of winter. Your robin looks to be a very cheery fellow!

It all looks and sounds like spring is just around the corner now! I saw a robin in Mississauga yesterday, and he was singing and flying around in the high winds happy as could be :)

In Woodstock, my motheralways watched for the first Robins by Mar. 10th. I think they're gonna be early this year!

It was lovely. I heard the robin but didn't see it. The cardinal was also chirping and chirping and very visible. But tonight they say ice rain before some rain. It had better be gone by the morning.

Linda Kay said...

Lovely colors in your flowers, and I so enjoy how much you love that Miggs!

I have yet to spot a robin. Just as well, as it has started to snow here with more on the way, so the forecast claims. I picked a few snowdrops yesterday before they get covered. I like all your indoor buds and blooms!
