It looks like it is officially here! SPRING!
It started here a week ago with the group of ducks that pop up and spend the Spring here in my neighborhood. They flew in one night and we woke up to them all over the place. In years past, we have had a family of ducks nest in our bushes and lay eggs. But just like how fast they came in, they had packed their nest, babies and all, and moved out. No goodbye. We didn’t even get to see the babies!
What about the little bursts of color we are seeing popping out of the ground. The spring bulbs are starting to bloom. The crocuses in the picture above are from my garden. Their happy little blooms are popping up all over the place. Soon we will have daffodils, tulips and hyacinths popping up too! It is a beautiful time of year!
Daylight Savings seems to pop up almost unexpected every year. I know that it comes every year the same time but it always seems to throw people off with losing an hour! For a few days, we walk around in a daze but then it seems like magically it’s Spring. Longer daylight hours makes for happier days!
Bunnies! They pop up all over this time of year. They are a sure sign Spring is here and of course Easter! My kids both loved bunnies when they were little. Both of them had their favorite stuffed bunny which kept them company every night. One was named Mister Bunny Whiskers and the other was named Floppy. When you look at them, they are both very loved. They both still have a special spot in our home! A highlight one Spring was having my kids picture taken with live bunnies. My daughter was so excited and even my son had fun. Of course, we cannot forget the main bunny that pops up around this time: The Easter Bunny! He still stops by the house every year and leaves his goodies here!
So I guess you can say that there are lots of Little Pops of Spring to notice this time of year!
