Monday’s Walk

We’re still following the rule that we must go out for a walk as long as it’s over 20 degrees.  Today we actually saw temperatures in the 30s and the sun shone at times making it a lovely day for a walk.

During some parts of our walk things still looked very bleak and winter-like.

But as usual, there are always sights to appreciate.   Exploring the outdoors makes winter-y weather much more manageable.

Any new signs of spring near you?  What are you most excited to do this spring?  I am craving some bare feet on the earth! And gardening!

  1. I love your little signs that spring is on its way! And it is wonderful for Cora to have these photos of her first spring, nice and snug in her jumpsuit. Believe it or not, we do have signs of spring-lots of birds singing, color popping out on our Indian Hawthorn, blossoms on our citrus trees and blueberry bushes and the flowering trees in the neighborhood–and lots of bees!
