Early Spring ~A Love / Hate relationship~

 Here it is mid February, not that cold weather is past, but hopefully the brutal weather is done. This time of year I have Love / Hate feelings for the weather and what is going on outside. Here in the upper Mid-West the weather can change at the drop of a hat. For instance, today's temperature is suppose to be close 60f (15c). Tomorrow's temperature is suppose to be 32f (0c).

Things I HATE about early Spring~
Vast temperature differences.
Dampness
Cold, rainy days and nights
brown/gray scenery
mud

Things I LOVE about early Spring~
more daylight
birds singing
Days can be warm.
buds on tree limbs and bushes
not wearing a heavy coat
fresh air
hints of green grass

                                                   This is what it looks like outside today.




This is what I'm waiting to see  





Wishing you a great week-end. Hoping  the weather is nice enough that you can get out and enjoy it.

I think I feel the same way as you about the weather. I am in the midwest and our weather fluctuates hour to hour.
