Star Magnolia.* Camellia. Crocus.

Lithodora. Narcissus. Hyacinth.

Bradford Pear. Crabapple. Cherry.

Everything is opening.

I'm strolling into spring with wide smile and dropped jaw. Blue skies. Sunny days. I'm practically skipping. Flowers bloom, days shine, and I'm one with Walt Whitman singing in spring. I embrace e.e. cumming's puddle wonderful world.

On this Thankful Thursday, I rejoice in these first blooms on this first day of spring.

It's Thankful Thursday, a weekly pause to express appreciation for all things, big and small. What are you thankful for today?
