Subtle Signs of Spring

DSC_2088 copyThis was the view of the sunrise yesterday through the fog in Florence, South Carolina.

I was on the road yesterday morning by 7:00 a.m. I stopped for lunch at Cracker Barrel (it's tough eating healthy on the road, and I know that's no excuse) about 11:00 a.m. and finally made it home by 2:30 p.m.

The lush and tropical green of South Florida was gone for sure, but the sun was warm and the temperature in the 60s <happy sigh> and I found subtle but definite signs of spring in my own yard:

One thing I wasn't so pleased to see was this:

Now, it's time to unpack, and get settled back into a routine.

    When the little green spikes of the tulips and the hyacinth poke through, Spring is definitely on its way. I actually have the same thing happening in front of my house. Sorry about the castle.

    I love watching the first signs of spring popping up from the ground — life renewing itself
