Well, we've been havin' another round of winter here in the Ozarks, just like a lot of you folks are. I don't know about you, but I'm kinda gettin' tired of all the teasin' that Mother Nature keeps handin' out to me. And I'm a person who likes Winter! But I've finally had enough. I woke up this mornin' to 20 degree temps out there and I knew, without a doubt, that I want this,

Oh boy, do I really want this,

And this

Ohhhh, and this,

What are these? I just know I want 'em.

And I happen to be pretty sure granddaughter wants this

And I know I can hardly wait for this,

I want this part, too.

See the minnow? He wants it too.

I especially want this.

I'm full of wants, how 'bout you?

Youn's come back dreckly now, ya hear?

Housesitter said... are an EVEIL woman...I love, LOVEm LOVE your photos - I want ALL those flowers and the greenery...I will complain that I don't get those on the island coz it's too hot or something...but man, I want them too! There is NOTHING wrong with WANTING! If ya don't speak up and say what you want, you ain't gonna get it!

Oooooo all your beautiful pictures has me wanting all that too!!!!! We have been teased with weather in the 80's for the last several days and now it is in the 40's but with a really cold wind blowing so I don't know what the wind chill might be but BRRRRRR! I am sooooo ready for Spring to be here and stay!♥

Hey Rebel,

Just beautiful pics, down here we don't have a winter at all, so, we're real used to seeing this most all year round. The only thing that turns brown are our lawns.

If I had a pool I would of jumped in it today since the temp was 79 degrees, and that sun was very bright.

However, I do think that having 4 seasons would be so wonderful since I have never seen the changes and would love to do so.

Take care, hopefully it will warm up soon.

So much for global warming!!!!!

Can I just live in your dreamland for awhile? It seems so nice there.

Such fun pictures of spring. Do you think all of your cold weather will be gone before Easter? If it is not, however will you have all those pretty flowers surrounding you?
