Signs of . . .

Spring.

Adult

Robins return, chirping away.
Frogs croaking making the evening.


Crocuses, irises, and daffodils refusing to stay in their winter prisons.
Trees budding, impatiently waiting to burst forth into glory.
Cold weather reluctantly giving way to warmth.
Rain.

Thawed ponds.
Water plants peeking above the water line.
Pets wanting to explore the outdoors.
Seed and plant catalogs dogeared edges.

A gnawing inside me to get out.
The impatience to get to my flower beds.
Urges to plant, clear, smell, and dig in the dirt.

Fresh veggies in my dreams.
Full and cross-section of a ripe supermarket tomato
Tomatoes


Green beans


Cucumbers grow on vines
Cucumbers


Red radish
Radishes

Thoughts of new flower beds.
Repairing the driveway.
Showers.
Rainbows again.
Fields turning green.


Spring.
