Spring Is On The Phone

She called to say, she’s on her way, in Palm Beach at the moment, doing a little shopping…and can you blame her, after weathering all this bad weather?

A little Versace can do wonders for a girl, remember, so we mustn’t hold a side trip to Neiman Marcus against her.

Everyone is getting ready for her arrival…washing windows, changing closets. I’ve already traded my red winter nail polish for a fiery fuchsia.

See, I want to be ready to take off my socks at a moment’s notice.

If you listen, you can hear birds singing, feathering their nests while squirrels unpack nuts from cold storage.

I even saw a portly raccoon peek from her tree to see if she could catch sight of Spring in the distance.    images-1

We’re busy little bees alright, including the bees buzzing around in their black and yellow vests like prickly school guards. It never occurred to me before, but perhaps all that honey is behind those chronic mood swings. More fiber in their diet might be the answer.

The one thing I do know…Spring, that sleeveless vixen, can be easily distracted so we must prepare ourselves for a possible delay….don’t shed those layers just yet.

But all good things are worth waiting for, so we too will wait for Madam’s train to pull up at the station, even if it is, a little late.

All aboard?    images-1

  1. Susannah, do you remember how she toyed with us last spring? She was seen in the islands dancing taunting us while we froze our buns off? What a trollop!


  2. The windows are open, my allergies are kicking in and my daffodils are blooming. I’m waiting for the blizzard.

  3. She’s been here for the last week or so, although they’re calling for ice tomorrow, so maybe she got called away suddenly. This time of year and especially March, is especially volatile. School might be cancelled if there’s ice, which means a whole day of writing. 🙂

    Yes, please! Time to leave off my woolly vest. Well, after Doris has passed through anyway.

    Yesterday was so beautiful that I only used the screen doors most of the day. Our two cats and one dog loved it. They always seem to hold me personally responsible for the snow, like it would ever be my idea.
