Spring, please!

Spring is coming here oh so's like she's dipping her toe in, testing the waters. C'mon already! 

Here in St. Paul, spring has brought the rising waters of the nearby Mississippi...the back entry of our building has been sandbagged shut for over a week now. I have actually been thankful for the colder temps this past week--it kept the flooding to a manageable level. But I am done...I need sun, warmth, the sight of trees budding and flowers trying to make their way up through the earth.

Winter has had its grip on us long enough!

sure feels like it's been a long season for me too, and I love winter!
It will be lovely when the flowers start blooming. I have a magnolia tree which I love so much! I nursed it back to health after our dog chewed it up one winter, lol! until it was a tiny stump.
Hope you get your spring soon :-)
