Spring is definitely here in Atlanta. We’ve already had quite a few days of 80+ degree temps. We’ve been spending every single evening and weekend outside burning off energy and doing yard work.
Last week while we were baking in 86 degree weather wearing shorts and flip flops some of my northern friends and family were dealing with snow. It reconfirmed why we’re not living up north. I may have very well cried (and I’m serious) if I was dealing with snow in late March.
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely and positively love, love, love the Minneapolis area. Well, from May to October anyway. You can keep November to April. And I’m not saying that I wouldn’t ever move back up there again or that we’ll stay in Atlanta forever. I’m just saying that this year I am thankful to be here in the midst of Spring.
Mid-March in Atlanta looks something like this….
Tulips and daffodils are already in bloom. Our day lillies are bushy and green, but don’t have flowers yet. The grass is turning green and you hear lawn mowers on a daily basis now.
Most of our trees have full leaves on them already, but these two in our backyard are late budding for some reason. I just thought the pinks and greens in them were pretty cool.
Is it Spring yet where you are? Or do you still have snow on the ground?
