How many days left to exercise patience until the Spring arrives? According to some reading I did on the Net, we have 55 days left. During those 55 days, I promise to be patient and just wait that Mother Nature does her work to prepare this season and make a wonderful one out of it. It won't be easy but thankfully there is plenty of beautiful gardens and flowers and landscaping to check on this wonderful Internet system. Start of Spring / End of Winter (Northern Hemisphere) / Vernal Equinox 3/20/2017

Winter does not brother me at all. I love the rain.

Patience is a virtue blah blah.. :) We are having summer here so my patience isn't being tested at the moment.

Love your picture! Yes, spring is not too far away but we can have a lot of winter weather in February and March. Yet, hope springs eternal!

At least you get a period of time where you actually have a spring season. Florida gets like one week, and then we skip right ahead to summer! Haha

Spring is definitively my favorite season of them all. Yes, for that we are lucky.

@marlina Spring would be my favorite season of the year too, if we didn't have so much pollen to contend with. There's so much pollen that it looks like yellow snow all over the ground and on the cars and houses. That's how thick it is! And then as soon as the pollen season is over, along comes all the love bugs. If you've never experienced love bugs, then consider yourself lucky. The swarms of those insects flying all over the place are probably worse than all 10 of the Egyptian plagues in the Bible.

The countdown is now 53 days. I think we can muster the patience, don't you?

How many until Summer? I like spring too though. I just want this cold wiped out already.

Spring isn't here yet? Eck. We have another winter storm coming here in the next few days. I'm not happy about it.

I always look forward to spring, especially when January comes along. I'm not a huge winter fan, although I can't complain too much of this winter. It's been pretty mild all things considering.

Ah, 55 days until my oldest grandson's birthday. That's great! Thanks for telling me. Now for 55 days of winter that still hasn't really shown up yet, but waiting on snowflakes to start anytime now. They are in the forecast unless they pass us by. Checking out the streetlight - I think it's snowing

March 20, 2017 will be the perfect day to have a celebration. Think we will start planning one now.

Spring sounds nice. That's when all the blooms arise. One of the fruit trees in the backyard will soon bare its fruit. Wonderful! Blessings.
