A taste of spring

The weather here in Moorhead has been in the mid to high 30s the past two days–I can’t BELIEVE how great it feels! Well, yes, I can. It’s been a brutal winter so far and it’s so far from over.  And it’s supposed to be cold again in a day or two, but oh my gosh as I’m writing this on Tuesday afternoon, it’s 37 degrees and sunny! The sunshine feels almost as great on my skin as it does on my mind and spirit. :)

I took advantage of the above-freezing temperatures and bought a little bulb basket on my lunch hour to bring back to work. It has hyacinths, tulips, and crocus, and those hyacinths smell absolutely wonderful. They smell like spring. It is one of my favorite scents in the entire world–hyacinths, lilacs, and basil are probably my top three (and, of course, my husband’s cologne, but that’s another issue).

Isn’t it gorgeous? It really is a welcome touch of spring. I know it’s still a long time coming, but this helps, a little.  And I’ll take every little bit of help I can get. 😉

    May I ask where you found this beautiful sample of spring?
    I think I need one!

      Of course! I actually got it at Hornbachers, although I got the last one like it. However, they had smaller, cheaper ones at Cash Wise last time I was there (a few daffodils and a hyacinth) and they had quite a few. This basket I got the other day was $16.99 (!) and the little pots at CW were under 10–maybe 6 bucks or so. :)

      p.s. you just wouldn’t believe how truly amazing it smells. . . it’s somehow so encouraging, making me feel like spring is a possibility after all. 😉
