Spring, the elusive mistress......

.....she's sneaky and sly this year. Coming in for one day with her beautiful breezes and fair temperatures, teasing me with the scent of rebirth and then.......{insert whoosh here}...she was gone. And today, school was canceled and we sit inside once again as the cold temps and snow just keep coming back for more. I've always been more of a fall/winter gal than a spring/summer gal, but this year, I'm having major withdrawals. I need light, sunlight. I need to leave the windows open during the day, feel the breeze whip through the house. I need flowers, leaves, perhaps some green grass.

These are pics of our land....they were taken on Saturday (the day Spring paid us a visit) behind the house. I wanted to share with you my little hike with my man. As I walked around and took lovely pics, he scaled the side of the enormous hill (we live in a valley) so that he could make sure the property stakes were all in and properly tagged. We live on 62 acres and lately have had some problems with kids on fourwheelers tearing you-know-what through the property....this spooks the horses just a tad, lol.

Isn't it just gorgeous. It has been a long time since I laid on my back in the grass and just stared at the sky. I'll add that to my list of things to do when the weather gets nicer.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit, Missy Sue! Your land looks a lot like ours. Isn't it great to be able to walk in the woods right outside your back door? I, too, am anxious for Spring. I seem to be in a creative slump right now but I know the cure will flow through me on the wings of Spring.

Loved this post..and yes, spring is being very sneaky this year -- in my part of the world she's just staying put until further notice!!
