Spring has Sprung

This past week, we enjoyed a couple of beautiful spring like days. Most of our snow melted and the grass started looking an almost green color. Tiring of winter storms, it was a nice change. It reminded me of a little poem my mother used to recite when I was young. It went something like this:

Spring has sprung
The grass has ris' (pronounced: riz)
I wonder where
The flowers is.

I'm not sure who wrote those words of wisdom, but I composed something similar during yesterday's retreat into winter:

Spring sprung
For one whole day
Then winter returned
And got in the way.

I added to it this morning:

Eventually spring will arrive to stay
Even though it's snowing today
Soon the storms will pass on by
The sun will remain in a cloudless sky

Until it arrives
Ponder spring flowers
That refuse to bloom
Without numerous showers.

You may wonder how the picture above ties into this blog. Two valid reasons: it shows a combination of spring and winter. Also, today happens to be the 26th wedding anniversary for my husband and I. We were married in the Logan Temple on May 1st, 1982. I took this shot earlier this past week during a jaunt to Logan. As we came around the corner from Logan Canyon, I was impressed by what I saw. Later that same day, I had to drive back up that little winding road by Utah State to snap this picture, risking life and limb, but I digress. =)

Happy Anniversary, love of my life. ;)

Je t'aime,
