Spring Fever

I’ve been looking at many of the posts in my Reader Feed and it seems that everyone has Spring Fever!  Well, me too.

Looking at the calendar, it says February.  But you wouldn’t know it here in North Texas. Yesterday was 70 degrees and today will be about the same.  It’s sunny and beautiful!  For a girl that has spent most of her life in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, this weather is just miraculous!

The picture above was taken today.  Can you see all the pretty little purple wildflowers?  Love it!

The recent weather has had me itching to play in the dirt.  So I planted a Spring Garden last weekend!

I know it’s pretty lame.  But it’s the best I could do on spur of the moment.  🙂

My move to Texas from Oregon was a pretty big adjustment for me and becoming acclimated has taken some time.   It’s been about 6 1/2 years and just within the last year or so, I’ve come to appreciate the shorter, milder winters here.  I know that we have terribly hot summers here, but that’s why God gave us Air Conditioning!

Would I call myself a Texan?  No.  I think I will be considered a Newbie for many years to come.  But I have a new appreciation for where I am!

  1. I am super envious of flowers popping, grass showing and 70 degrees. Here this morning in southern Minnesota, the temp is seven degrees. Last evening my husband and I worked for an hour clearing snow. That’s on top of the hour we worked the evening prior. But, hey, at least the sun is shining bright today. Everything’s better when the sun shines.
