We Made it!!

Spring Is Here
Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

Spring arrived today
Aglow in spring time fashion
Spring fever follows

Yes, we did! I was out taking some flower photos to put on later tonight. Guess it's just too hard to resist, isn't it?

I always find the Spring Fever precedes the actual spring. Then again, I live far enough north that we're often waiting to plant anything until June.

Great poem!

I got it, I got it. Though I must admit to getting the first inkling at least two months ago -- headaches, queasiness, anxious toes -- I got it full-force now! I got the fever.

Lovely image and poem, Ms HinSF.

I'm all springy too. The kids are able to get outside and get dirty and do warm weather things. I do like winter, but I'm all about some sprigitudeness

Whew! Finally.

I love Spring! I'll look for your pictures later.


I have Spring Fever all year. What can I tell you?


Hmm. For me, it's entirely psychological. Do you think you could be having an allergic reaction to something related to the change of seasons?


Springitudeness. What a wonderful word. Can I use it if I give you credit?

Reminds me of my favorite springtime poem by e.e. cummings.."In Just Spring".

Uh, um, you mean this bumpy rash isn't normal? Doesn't everyone have it?


heartinsanfrancisco said...


I know that one. Mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful are such great images.


Maybe it's normal -- for you.

I hope you don't have poison ivy or her sisters, poison oak and poison sumac. They are all my sworn enemies.

Happy Spring to you!!! We still have snow here ;-(

Yay! I love Spring. I'm already for SUMMER though. Death heat. Humidity. Shorts. Flip-flops. Cotton dreses. Cherry-limeade. Loud crickets. Blazing sun. Afternoon thunderstorms. Can you tell I'm a true Floridian?

Spring turns me into such a nester, though. I've been buying plants and planting seeds all week. Not to mention all the money I've been blowing on new 'house stuff.'

heartinsanfrancisco said...


It will come soon. I'm sending warm weather as far east as I can blow it.

Sweet Pea,

I love Spring, too. I love all the seasons, actually, but Spring is always an astonishment to the senses. Just when we've resigned ourselves to a dead-seeming earth, everything bursts into glorious bloom and we remember that it always does that. Ahhhh, Spring.

I have them both: spring fever and hay fever. But it's okay. I LOVE Spring!

I have both, too. The hay fever isn't as bad in California as it was on the East coast, though. Maybe you should move out here.
