it’s in the air


 yesterday, the air was warm and smelled of spring. i thought i’d smelled the earth, so i bent down closer, and i saw the green buds coming out. the smell of earth filled my senses and i felt like it was truly almost spring. there’s this certain smell that i always associate with spring. now that i think about it, i’m pretty sure it’s one of my favorite smells in the world. it just gives me such a feeling of hope and makes me feel like i could soar through the sky.

today, i went outside in my rubberboots and tried to find some puddles to splash around in. it’s kind of strange to think that we’re finally coming out of the icy grasp of winter. i’ve had several birds visiting me, but sometimes it was while snow was falling. still, i think maybe spring’s finally on the way.

be a hero,
anna

  1. Ooh I can't wait for spring to come see me again...it's so cold where I live, and the snow isn't magical anymore, just kind of dirty =P And our driveway has been like a skating rink all winter.
    I want to be able to walk around barefoot outside all spring and summer, like I do every year. It's that point in winter where I'm tired of the cold and old snow.
    Thank you for this lovely reminder that spring will come again, no matter how harsh and long the winter may seem =)
    Did you take those pictures? They're beautiful! I need to figure that out with my camera.

      But I just want spriiing now so I can visit my neighbors' pony again! Our road isn't the best to walk on with all the snow on the sides. Too narrow in the winter =(
      You're welcome =D

    4. Haha well, I hope you can try skating someday!
      Actually, I did finally get to visit the pony all weekend! The owners were away and wanted me to feed her and her pal, a big black quarter horse =)

  9. Hm... I don't think I've ever smelt spring. In Singapore, it summer every single day of the entire year... No spring, no autumn, and definitely no winter. It's kinda sad... :P

    Oh wellz...
