Hope for Spring?

I get pretty anxious for Spring around this time in February.
I think it is because of where I grew up.
Spring was just around the corner.
There might be a daffodil starting to shoot a touch of
green from the earth this time of year.


And when I get this hope for Spring,
I reflect on the beauty of where I grew up.
Pleasant Hill, California.


This pic would be after a rainy winter.
The hills were green in winter,
gold in summer.

Wild mustard bloomed late spring.
(these pics were taken by a 
sweet little photographer in the Bay Area)



We had our beloved single mountain,
Mount Diablo.


I don't remember snow on Mt. Diablo,
but I guess there was!


When we moved there, our house was one of the last on the road in a new tract of homes.
There were still blooming fruit orchards on the hills,
wild mustard,
green grass...
a perfect place to play and climb trees.

Yup.  
I get 'home sick' some times.
But I do love where I live now,
even though Spring flowers won't come up
for a few months.


David R. Stoecklein has taken so many 
beautiful pictures of this area.  
This is one of many.

Here in Idaho-land the sun is shining and it 
will be a warm 34 degrees says the weatherman.
Yay!!!
Seriously.
I am soooo excited that it will be that warm.
; )


I hope you have a wonderful week,
my little 
Monday hooligans.
Sending lots of love and positive
energy your way!
And remember,
there is joy and happiness around
the corner!

Love to you all!
xoxo

    1. I love it too. Especially when we get that intense, electric blue sky like we had today!

  2. Yes, you live in a beautiful place with real seasonal changes. I did enjoy that about the Provo area when I attended school.
