Spring Has Sprung, the Grass Has Riz…

As contradictory as it may seem, there is nothing as relaxing—and simultaneously stimulating—as roadtripping through eastern Texas and western Louisiana in the springtime!  I took a little jaunt over that way during the Easter holiday and encountered breath-taking beauty on every side.  Vibrant ribbons of rich reds, purples, and yellows unrolled along the roadway for mile after mile; brilliant bursts of pink, white, and green sprang from the fields, meadows, and lawns as I passed.  Everything was clean and fresh and new.  Who would believe that there could be so many varying shades of green??  Absolutely gorgeous!

Note: The title of this post was “borrowed” from a poem written in the 1940s or 50s which was gleefully quoted by my Dad each spring.  To learn more about this little ditty… http://www.ask.com/question/poem-spring-has-sprung-the-grass-has-riz

One thought on “Spring Has Sprung, the Grass Has Riz…

  1. I too enjoy the newness of spring. Recently I took a short trip to the Texas Hill Country with my husband. Along our way we passed fields of wild flowers with my all time favorite being the Bluebonnets. We even stopped at the Wildflower farm where they had fields of poppies, sunflowers, and purple cornflowers. Take a look yourself. http://www.wildseedfarms.com/ My short trip was enough to rejuvenate me from the long cold winter.
