Seeking Spring

Spring is taking her sweet, old time arriving at my house and the dilly-dallying is wearing my patience thin.  I’ve started looking elsewhere for the promises of renewal and growth I’ve been desperately craving after this long and dreary winter.  The substitutes I’ve found, the bouquets of tulips and the forced daffodil and hyacinth bulbs purchased from the grocery store and humble road-side stand, have been more than adequate stand-ins for the real thing.  They’ve brought a freshness and grace to my winter-weary home and temporarily satisfied my need for the beauty and color of this long-awaited season.

Because this half of the Flufflypants Gang was so intent on interfering with my carefully composed images (ha!), I thought I’d satisfy his ego and give him the spotlight for a moment, too.  What a poser!

Have a wonderful day!
