The weather here in our part of Colorado has been absolutely wonderful. In fact, I think our first Colorado winter is giving us the wrong impression of how winter usually is in this part of the country. Earlier this week I spotted some purple and yellow flowers in our neighbors yard.
I could hardly believe my eyes!
I gathered the kids and we set off on a walk/bike ride around the neighborhood searching for spring. I don’t like taking pictures of other people’s homes without their permission. (I’m a rules girl that way.) So I was hoping to find some bulbs poking their little heads out of the sidewalk or along the trail.
The walk didn’t provide me any flowers. I did see this
Which, admittedly brought a smile to my face. I drive by this sign every day and had never noticed that the pedestrian was hula-hooping.
Later in the afternoon, as I watched the kids play and ride bikes in our cul-de-sac I noticed something green in our sad, empty flower bed (it’s our first spring here and the yard needs TONS of work).
I found my Spring right in my own front yard.
Such a lovely surprise.
