After the Winter...

Comes Spring!

I appreciate each season for the unique characteristics each brings, but I am really looking forward to spring right now!

Here in Virginia (US) it's been a little chilly lately, and many of the more northern states have been getting dumped with snow and ice. I'm ready for warmth!And from the merchandise starting to line store shelves, other people are beginning to think the same things: bunnies and eggs.

I loved watching the Easter cartoons when I was a kid! I loved (and still do) dying and painting eggs, hiding them, finding them, eating lots of candy, and getting stuffed bunnies, ducks, and chicks as gifts.

But, one of the things that always stumped me as a child was how the Easter Bunny came by all those eggs? Did the bunny lay the eggs himself? Did he have his own chicken farm, and art employees to decorate them?

As I've grown into an adult spring has taken on new meanings, but it is fun to remember the wild imaginations and good times I had as an innocent child. =)

Maybe that's why we have winter - so that spring will be so much more wonderful!

Love the red-orange eggs - such a beautiful color!

That's pretty much what I think to myself starting about mid-January -- winter is here, so spring is far behind! But of course, I do that with each season. :) About April, I'll be doing the same thing with summer. :)

Like the article and lovely illustration.
Our Chinese has a proverb, winter has come, spring also can be far very much very much?

Spring is always a great time of the year, the flowers and just the warmth of the air as you enjoy the outside...hopefully it will warm up for you soon in VA...its on its way here in Texas.
