Thursday Thirteen

What I like about Spring:

1. The colorful parade of blooming things.

2. Cute little baby deer.

3. Tree frogs on my back door singing to the moon.

4. Warm breezes (and then cool breezes when it is hot!)

5. A glowing sun bringing heat and renewal.

6. The green leaves of the forest.

7. The change of light as sun and clouds move across a springtime sky.

8. The smell of grass being cut and of flowers blooming (even if I am highly allergic).

9. The crisp morning air.

10. No need to wear a coat!

11. Cooking out on the grill.

12. Butterflies!

13. The feeling of rebirth, renewal and rejoicing that comes to the heart as the season changes.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; you can learn more about it here. My other Thursday Thirteens are here. This is my 89th one.

**The photos are all from 2006 and 2007.

  9. I get the feeling your Spring and my Spring are a little different. We don't get the tree frogs here. The baby deer are too far back in the hills for me to see. And most of the trees never stopped being green since they tend to be stuff like pine.

    Still, I've got the same kind of anticipation. I'm so tired of being cold.

  10. these are really beautiful photographs. i, too, love and am looking forward to spring. happy tt!

  11. Have the peepers started singing yet? I bet I will notice some big changes when I get home next week.

  12. That frog is just TOO adorable! Thanks for sharing (and thanks for visiting my TT)

  13. Oh we posted on the same topic & we're not all that far away from each other either! Hope you have a great weekend!

  14. Beautiful TT! It gets me excited for Spring. I may have steal this idea for next week. Happy TT!

  15. Everyone seems to be thinking about spring! I miss the seasons!!

  16. Ohhh - we still have at least another month before any of those lovely things happen for us. Lovely forsythia - can't wait until our little sprig grows into a big wild bush like that picture.
