Evie's Ode to Spring


We're so happy Spring is here. And I just know it's here to stay, despite the most annoying snow showers we had today. I mean, it's APRIL already! It's hard to explain to Evie why I have both flip-flops and snow boots by the door for her...

I remember making these trees as a kid. I always used pink and purple tissue paper and made red bud trees. Unfortunately, I only had green and blue paper at home, so we went with a general Spring tree.

First, I drew the tree on brown paper, cut it out, and glued it to the yellow paper. Then I cut green tissue paper into small squares and put out a dish of white glue. Evie had so much fun! She wadded the paper into little balls, dipped it in the glue, and put it on the tree! Viola - instant Spring!

Take that, snow!

I am well aware that it is snowing in April, but it was kind a pretty day.

And it did not stick!

I sincerely hope Evie's tree can be a harbinger of spring here. It's 30 degrees, it snowed on my handbag today on the way back from class, and I had to cover my poor little pea shoots with plastic. Boo. Hiss.

I'm putting my faith in Evie's tree. And crossing my fingers. And whatever else I can think of. I'm so DONE with winter.
