The first day of Spring was spent in one of the warmer parts of the state. We drove through blizzards and black ice only to come to the end of the canyon full of sunshine. The puppies were able to run and romp through the fields of grass without the bugs and the burrs. As was the kiddo. I was able to sit in the middle of it and take it all in. To listen to the birds that are returning after being gone for so long. To watch the sun glisten off the grass and the leaves that will soon be green. Not nearly soon enough though. It's almost impossible for me to wait patiently this time of year.....it's coming though. That special, scent inducing, memory enhancing time of year. I can't wait.
