Spring Fever . . .

Definition of "Spring Fever" . . .
A feeling of restlessness and excitement. . .
Even though it's 27 degrees this morning
I have a bad case of spring fever!
I'm anxiously on the lookout for the first signs of spring.

robins pecking in the grass . . .

forsythia blooming with sunny yellow . . .

Oklahoma Redbuds showing their beauty . . .

The first day of spring is just 25 days away.
Can't end this post without the lyrics for this song.

Might As Well Be Spring
Lyrics by: Oscar Hammerstein II
Music by: Richard Rodgers
From the film: State Fair 1945

I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm,
I'm as jumpy as puppet on a string
I'd say that I had spring fever,
but I know it isn't spring
I am starry eyed and vaguely discontented,
like a nightingale without a song to sing
O why should I have spring fever,
when it isn't even spring
I keep wishing I were someone else,
walking down a strange new street
hearing words that I've never heard
from a man I've yet to meet
I'm as busy as spider spinning daydreams,
I'm as giddy as a baby on a swing
I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud,
or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way,
that it might as well be spring
It might as well be spring.

Enjoy your day.♥
