signs of spring

Or, at least of semi-warm weather (and no rain or sleet or snow). We had a nice warm day last Saturday (dare I say it reached 70? maybe just high 60’s? warm enough that we didn’t need a jacket) so we took a stroll along the Charles River after miraculously finding a parking spot on Beacon Street. It was nice to feel the wind in my hair and to feel the sun beat down on us, even if it was a tiny bit chilly near the water. There were so many people out enjoying the break from the cold, wintry weather we’ve been having lately.

We walked back toward Newbury Street afterward in search of lunch and I couldn’t help snapping a photo of this beautiful flower arrangement in someone’s windows.  I love the mix of hydrangeas with the pansies and the different colors.  Totally inspiring for what I want to plant in our front yard this weekend.

And then (what I think is) the ultimate sign of spring: a delicious scoop of Christina’s homemade ice cream!  I think that officially kicks off the warm weather season, especially when it’s a scoop of my all-time favorite flavor: coconut almond crunch. 

I’m SO HAPPY to be able to eat almonds again and more especially because I can eat this again!

Needless to say, I am so glad spring is finally here.  Now let’s just hope we don’t have too many April showers this month.
