Oh Happy Day!


I was on my way to

pick up the newspaper

just like any other morning

when it happened.


Oh yes, I remember how this feels. You know, when Spring finally comes. The warmth of the sun wraps around us and all the while a cool breeze nips at our cheeks.

Birds chirp and sing their melodies while…

rabbit peeping from post

bunnies play their fair weather games.


The new colors of


magnolia saucer


weeping willow



excite our eyes,

too long accustomed

to russet and brown.


The smell of fresh mulch

tingles my nose

as I walk back inside

with my paper in hand

for my morning cup of Joe.


Oh Happy Day!

I’m sharing with Outdoor Wednesday.

Oh happy day is right! It was a long, cold, drawn out winter this year and these new colors are lifting everyone's spirits.
