Is it Spring yet?

Being mid-March I thought spring should be in the air.  But, Mother Nature has different plans. We have had more than our fair share of winter weather this year, mostly cold and rainy, but we did get one good snow.  The kind that brings cottony, soft flakes that fall with a whisper and quietly covers the countryside with a blanket of white.
I have to admit that snow is beautiful and I enjoy watching the landscape change before my eyes from winter drab to glistening white. But I can't help having visions of spring bouncing around in my head.
It is comforting to know that the animals are snug and warm inside their cozy barn.

Soon the snow and cold will be forgotten and we will be nurturing our seedlings and cuddling our doelings and bucklings.

Ahhh, is it spring yet?
