Today is the first day of Spring but it’s FREEEEEZING OUTSIDE. We had a few warm days last week, then wham! A huge storm hit Thursday night dropping balmy temps from the 60s to the 30s (18°C to 1°C.) Yesterday snowflakes appeared amidst a deluge of sleety rain. Unusual (to say the least) for the month of March in Williamsburg, Virginia!

Obviously the weather here did not get the March memo. Things may be cold and dreary, but spring will come. The challenge is to hold on until then.

Hold on to hope. The sun may not come out today or even tomorrow…

… but it will shine again.

As for spring? Walking around town Virginia (the person) has seen a few daffodils and redbuds peeking out. Not much in the way of leafy green trees, but there was one in downtown Williamsburg appropriately Instagramed for posterity (and hope’s) sake.

Spring has not sprung in its flowery grandeur, but it’s OTW. Today here are a few quotes and pics to get our spring vibes going…

“And the Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Hold fast to hope, the fragile flowers shout.” Mary Lou Kownacki

“Luminous is the light of spring. Luminous is the light of Christ. Let us enter into this light of the Lord, who brings us the spring of hope, eternally renewed. He brings us the gift of faith that can grow by leaps and bounds. He brings us the love that can change the world if we incarnate it as He wishes us to.” Catherine Doherty

grace, peace & springy HOPE!

    The transition to spring is so weird in VA! You might get thunderstorms and tornado warnings one day and snow the next! Beautiful photos! Stay warm!

      You know it, Michelle. We had a tornado watch one day last week, 75 degree weather, then the next day in the 30s! Yikes! Hope you will enjoy spring as it comes in your beautiful part of VA! Blessings!

      It’s more like spring here this week – a few more flowers peeking out and temps rising a bit. Haven’t seen any cherry blossoms or dogwood, but pear blossoms should be out soon. Blessings!
