Waiting...

Waiting for sunshine.


A porch swing waiting to be used again.


Play equipment waiting to be used.


Waiting for flowers to bloom.


A lone red car waiting to be played with.


A picnic bench waiting for laughter and smoke from the grill.


Waiting is so hard!
But I know without it, we wouldn't appreciate Spring as much.
How's the waiting going for you?

(Don't forget about the jewelry giveaways.)

I guess I'm not anxiously anticipating Spring just yet. Hubby and I are planning a garden so we've got some work to do before the weather warms up. Then I'll be sooo ready for Spring and some home grown goodies!!!

love the pics!

Those pictures are great. I love the one of the bench! We're having a dusting of snow this morning but have had lots of sun the last week. Yes, I'm so ready for Spring, especially so we are not waking up to dark mornings.

Spring means lots of mud to me. I don't like mud. :-)

I actually LOVE snow. I don't think I could live somewhere that it doesn't snow. Of course, I don't have to shovel it or "deal" with it. Just look at it, and drive in it.

I'm a Maine native, so it's in my blood.

Great pics, btw. You have an eye for it.

Beautiful photos. I am no good at waiting for Spring. I am in Northern NJ and we are supposed to get 10 inches of snow tonight. I hate winter and the cold more than I can put into words.

Funny we have the same swing and bench on our front porch. I love it when I see the things I love with someone else.

Lovely post, especially the first and last photos!

Yeah, I'm waiting...but I'm waiting for SNOW! We want snow so bad here. It's been 9 yrs since we've had a decent snow. We used to get 6-12 inces at a time and now....nothing...an inch or two maybe...but not even in the last few years have we had even that. Our kids have never seen a real snow before. Oh yeah, we're waiting alright...lets swap for a while!

We had a breath of spring today. It was almost 70 degrees. It's supposed to be about 30 tomorrow.

Sweet Nothings said...

Your pictures are beautiful, and so big...I love that, and must figure out how to do it. I am thinking with three columns, I can't.
I LOVE when Wendy's has those booklets at Halloween...mine have all expired. Do they do them any other time? I didn't know if they did. I will be on the look out.
