The sign of spring

In New England, when it officially turns spring (March 20 this year), it doesn't always officially mean it's spring.  It's been known to snow, rain (A LOT), and even reach unseasonably warm, summer-like temps (i.e. last Wednesday, nearly 90!) during this time of year.  

No matter the weather, I always know when it's spring though because the forsythia faithfully blooms around this time.  The bright yellow bursts from the side of my mom's house... welcoming me as I come home and welcoming springtime.

  7. What pretty photos! I know what you mean, it rained here in LA yesterday and it's going to rain again next week.

    That's too bad that all the spas were booked this week! Ugh. It happens every 6 months though, so hopefully you'll catch it next time. Have a great day!

  23. Awh they're so lovely! That so weird that Spring starts then....our Spring starts on 1st Feb (every season has three months) and you always know immediately!! Feb is lovely...cold, but sunny, March is full of wind and rain and April is a crazy mixture of both with some snow thrown in, lol!
