Signs of spring

It’s hard to believe that spring is here as I’m still huddled inside my winter jacket. Hat and gloves are also necessary to stave off a chill in the air that would not disgrace autumn itself. (That’s fall if you speak American.)

And yet… I can feel energy and beauty pulsing underneath the surface.

Poetry in motion…

… A jump shared is twice the joy!

Children’s happiness is surely the personification of spring.

  14. Actually, aren’t children themselves the personification of spring? I’m more like late summer or autumn myself, trying to stave off winter.

  34. Beautiful Children! They look to be having an absolute ball on that Trampoline! Burning off some of that early summer/late spring energy!!
    Our grand boys had one of these in the back yard until Adam broke his arm , and the ER doc was aghast that they as parents allowed it. So they sold it..Adam doesn’t miss it..at least that is what he told me..his arm hurt very much when it broke:(
