Around these parts, spring is not colorful and bright. Spring is brown and gray with a hint of green. I went outside yesterday and grabbed these shots.
My tulips are poking their leafy heads out of the ground, but it will be a few weeks before they have any blooms.
These are the hardiest pansies I’ve ever known. They survived the winter and are blooming already.
Note the brown grass and bare trees against gray skies. The kids playing outside is one of my favorite signs of spring! It means less mess inside my house!
