I wish the grass would grow by itself. I'm afraid mine needs some work.

Oh how lovely! I'm pleasantly calm after reading that. I like the way you say the grass grows all by itself.

Here is mine if you'd like to pop by. Hope to see you soon.

Great quotes. After the winter we've had I'm ready for blossoms, green grass and sunshine!

Unfortunately 13 is so true.

Hootin' Anni said...

It's a good thing my mom never named me Spring...'cause I'm definitely NOT an optimist. LOLOLOL


Here's my 13 for fun this week. Come over and laugh a time or two. I always enjoy the company-- Have a great day!!

I like the quote about kind words and spring. Good post!

CountryDew said...

Oh I liked this! I am so ready for spring - at least, the one that man recognizes. I noticed my irises have some green poking up so I suspect they know something I do not.

I am Harriet said...

I really liked those quotes about spring. It made it seem like spring was getting closer.

Melli said...

Oh! Number 13 is sO true! But I'm ready for the PARTY! We were 64F today!!! Whooooo hooooooo! I was so excited I could hardly stand it! We do still have snow on the ground - but mostly it's just the remainders from the MOUNTAINS that the plows left! I think one more week and it will ALL be gone! YAY!
