It is finally spring here in Nova Scotia!!!

It has been a long time coming but finally spring has arrived. The grass is green, the leaves are coming out and the tulips and daffodils are in bloom. I just love this time of year. After what feels like a year of winter, it starts to warm up and the landscape begins to be painted with colour. It starts with a few dots here and there, some green sprouts of grass and patches of blue sky. Then splashes of colour, green grass all over, crocus and daffodils line homes and the smell of fresh cut grass fills the air. Finally, the masterpiece is done! There are Tulips of all colours, the trees are full of lovely green leaves, the sky is full of radiant blue and bright sunshine! The kids are all out playing in the fresh air, riding bikes, swinging on swings and sliding on slides! I enjoy summer, no more winter jackets and snowsuits but the next breath taking masterpiece here is fall. I just love the amazing brilliant colours that are painted in fall. I thank God for his amazing artistry. Here are a few pictures of spring from my home. They were taken a week ago and so much more has come out or bloomed since then, lovely.

Hi Jessica, thanks. I did take those with my camera and they weren't easy to get. I got the camera at Christmas time and can't figure out how to take nice close ups. There were dozens of blurry ones just to get those few! I need to take a class or something!
