We were taking many spring strolls up until about a week ago…when the spring weather suddenly took a turn backwards & has been trying to reenter winter. No snow, thank goodness, but it’s been too cold, much too WINDY, too rainy, too too yucky. Uploading these photos this morning is making me miss spring…in May.
Weird Iowa/Midwest/Middle Lands weather is all I can say.
Harmon found a stick on this pre-Earth Day hike that he & I took one afternoon during the week before second naptime. I found this picture-perfect patch of purple violets growing down by our creek under a still-dormant walnut tree. Spirits were instantly lifted. Made me very much appreciate my muddy slice of Iowa heaven…I reminded myself not every part of our property is covered in mud or chicken poo. 😉
The perfect capture!
June, Harmon, & I took a separate hike one day after school while everyone else was at Coralee’s soccer game.
Mom, enough photos!
It was absolutely NOT cold enough for a snowsuit during this hike! Harmon, however, is in love with his snowsuit & thinks if we put him in it he will automatically be allowed outside. Snowsuit=outside time. Smart one, that hobbit!
I hope we’re strolling into a stretch of better spring weather this week…no snowsuits required.
How’s the spring weather on your patch of earth?
