Spring Colors

I am so ready for spring.  I love it.  I'm starting to get anxious to feel my hands in the warm soil - get dirt under my nails.  I love planting in the garden, it's the promise of things to come.  The anticipation of waiting for that first bit of green to poke up out of the ground is almost too much for me.  I can't wait to drive the tomato stakes into the earth in hopes that each plant will produce an overabundance.

Spring - my savior after a cold, dreary, drab winter.

That new life is fun to enjoy. I start my tomatoes and peppers from seed as well as a number of flowers all indoors, so get in that dirt a little early.

Love these close ups. Never saw what actually came out of the shell - we call them something other than ciccadas but I can't remember right now.

I love those photos! That's amazing to capture the cicada like that. Yes, spring can't get here soon enough.
