"You won't believe this"

The other morning girls were up early (or at least earlier than I wanted).  They were playing quietly in their room, so I left them be.  I soon heard a little lot  of commotion.  Loud voices and their feet pounding down the hallway.  Carolyn bursts into the room, shouting: "Mom!  Come here.  QUICK!  You won't believe what I just saw!  Hurry! In my room!"  Normally I wouldn't get too excited, but down south there are a few things that I do worry about.  snakes.  I race into their room not sure what to expect, or just what I'd do if there really was a snake in their room.  (most likely go and get Daddy.. who stirred with all the commotion).  As I go in their room, they both are hoovered over the window.  {sigh of relief} whatever they're in a tizzy about, is outside.  So I venture out the window and see this.......

Yes, I realize this rubbing it in your faces to everyone back home.  But the kids are thrilled that it's offically spring.  Because the flowers are blooming.

That is one thing I love about TN and March...it was in full bloom. I honestly think the pretties place we have lived during spring is TN. Enjoy it for us all.

I like Linda's comment....but the flowers are beautiful. It does make me have Spring Fever even more when I think there are flowers coming out of the ground in places.
