Searching for Spring in St. Louis

I think we can all agree this has been a rough winter. Thankfully, St. Louis hasn’t had snowstorm upon snowstorm like so many places around the country have, but we also haven’t had our normal spring, either. I am hopeful, however, that this morning was the last morning I will wake up to freezing temperatures (until next fall), and today actually ended up being a beautiful day, so I went searching for spring, and I found it in Forest Park!

Chickadee Thursday

Today is a beautiful spring day (finally!) so we spent the morning at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Chickadee was so happy to get out and see the flowers!

Spring?

It’s only one small group of blossoms on our Japanese Cherry Tree, but it’s enough to give me hope that maybe spring is finally here!

Thinking Spring

After yesterday’s unexpected snow, I’m thinking spring more than ever. Fortunately, the beautiful early flowers at the Missouri Botanical Garden are proof that despite the wild weather swings, spring really isn’t that far away!
