It's Spring At Last - And That's No April Fool

Starting tomorrow, I participate in two challenges  - the Blogging from A to Z Challenge (where, on consecutive days in April, our blog posts start with A, then B, get the idea - with Sundays, except tomorrow, off) and the Ultimate Blog Challenge (30 posts in 30 days).

One of the few things I don't like about the Blogging from A to Z Challenge is that spring rushes by so quickly, and I have to try to squeeze it in in between my theme posts (Florida - Outside the Theme Parks).

Spring made a brief appearance in the Binghamton, New York area today.  The sun decided to come out for a guest appearance, before disappearing again for another week of gloomy weather - even some snow in the forecast, maybe.

Crocuses, on the Vestal Rail trail.

Snow runoff.

And, in my back yard, a Lenten Rose blooms, just in time for Easter.

The Canadian Geese are reestablishing themselves (not a recent picture, but I felt this post needed some geese. And some green.).

Speaking of Easter, the farm markets are reopening.  Oh spring, yes, we missed you, too.

And to all my readers of the Christian faith, may Easter bring you love, bring you happiness, and bring you the wonder of (for us in the Northern Hemisphere) renewal.

Join me tomorrow for the start of the #AtoZChallenge.


  1. Geese! I love geese.

    But not the mess they leave behind.

  2. Love how Spring teasingly arrives. Your Lenten Rose is beautiful! Good Luck with the challenges! See you at A to Z!

  3. How beautiful it all looks! Given the hot and humid weather in Mumbai, I would love some gloomy weather. But as they say, the grass is always greener so I can kind of understand what you mean :)

  4. Hoping spring finds you and stays soon.

  5. I heard about snow visiting US in April - wonder if you are affected too by it Alana?
