Is it Spring yet?

Bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush in Texas
Although I'm loving the beauty of courageous spring flowers that brave the cold, I don't consider 39 degrees to be spring weather.

A week ago we left the warmth of south Texas and headed to Kansas City. I loved taking photos of the wildflowers - particularly the bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush along the way. It boded well for spring. We arrived last Friday and since then it's been a seesaw of warm and cold.

Saturday we attended an outdoor birthday party that moved indoors because it was cold and windy. The birthday boy, Matt Krebs, managed to turn 30 regardless of the weather. Sunday turned warm and sunny and it looked like spring had arrived.

But yesterday, cold again and this morning's temperature of 39 was enough to keep me indoors and wish I were back in Texas. However, we have another birthday to celebrate today as our grandson, Ben, turns sixteen.

So, like the spring flowers, we'll keep blooming and smiling while we wait for the warmth! In the meantime, enjoy the color!
