Good to Wow: Spring Edition, SOOC

My very best guess is that, with the prompt being "spring", Ashley and Jill had in mind the three-month period from about March 20th to June 20th; the period of time when warmth hugs the earth, and new life floods the world with color and fragrance; the season that, thus far, has eluded the Arctic.

Having just moved here, I remember very clearly those early southern springs. And, in fact, I am doing my best to avoid all of my friends' Facebook pictures of lovely blooming trees and children playing outside in shorts.

Though I cannot speak from experience and therefore 100% accuracy, it is my understanding from things I've overheard that spring in Connecticut does not care that the calendar is marked "Spring" on or around March 20th each year. It is my understanding that we could be well into April before we begin posting pictures of lovely blooming things and bare-armed children. These days when I look outside my window, I actually am deliriously happy because I see patches of ugly, brown grass. But, again going on assumption based on rumor, I don't think the melting snow is any promise that we won't be buried again sometime in the next month or two.

So, with that in mind, I am afraid I am forced to post this as my SOOC:
This is a spring. From a pen.

And after seeing this very intriguing photo, you might be thinking that I simply have run out of things inside this house to photograph. You would be correct.

Spring, please. Please, spring, hurry up!!

Very creative - honestly, things will just be starting to bloom this week. On our drive home yesterday, I saw lots of stuff blooming but it was raining so I wasn't getting outside.

Ya'll get tons more snow & bad weather than we do down here in SeMo, so you deserve Spring 1st... but there's no signs of Spring down here, either... & it's COLD this morning (37 now, but low 30's on my way to work) YiKeS! =)

I'll 2nd your plea... COME ON SPRING! PLEASE!!!

Nicely done! You say Arctic, but I know I'm really in the Arctic here. ;) We're not getting rid of our snow for many more weeks... if the forecast holds true. :(

Amy @ Cheeky Cocoa Beans said...

I love it! And I would send at least one of my beautifully blooming but incredibly *stinky* trees to you if I could.

Of course, that would leave us with only ONE tree in our whole entire yard, but that's a chance I'd be willing to take. ;)

I'll be linking up tomorrow!
