First Signs of Spring

They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Well, it definitely barged in like a lion at the very first day of March! True, it has been a cold winter, but never as cold , stormy, snowy as it has been ever since March 1st. A real fierce lion it has been! On the other hand - The kids who live in the highest places in our country and in Jersualem were happy, going out to the snow throwing snow balls at each other, greeting the snow with laughs and cheers. I  envy them. I'd like to go out an play with them too but - no snow on Mt. Carmel where I live. Just rather cold!

A day before the storm broke out it was a glorious day. The sun was so nice and warm and I walked around smelling the sweet smells of the fresh trees and flowers around my  handmade jewelry studio and feeling suddenly free and happy knowing that spring is just about to take its place.

When I look at these photos I get this surge of optimistic feelings and new creative ideas enter my mind, so as much as I love lions, I really hope he leaves quietly and lets the lamb come in and take its place!

And here is something else - I missed the " Travelling Wilburys" George Harrison , Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty, so I looked them up in You Tube  and here they are. All of them:

Many of you remember them . I am rather sure of that!

I'm feeling the same! We aren't quite there yet in Omaha, but I spied some crocuses budding on the side of our house. Love the Wilburys. :-)
