“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”

― Mark Twain

Earlier this month, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter weather.  Apparently, the Carolinas

were not paying attention to Phil’s prediction.  This weekend, the area where North and South Carolina meet were treated to spring-like temperatures and signs of spring all around.

I often like to travel on the weekends to find great subjects to photograph.  I found, this weekend, that I had plenty to see and photograph right around home.   Saturday morning, my husband and I drove around Rock Hill, South Carolina.  There we were treated to signs of spring at every turn.

One of the places we looked was Winthrop University.  I earned my Bachelors Degree at Winthrop and always enjoy walking through the beautiful campus.


New Life


A Place to Rest



Between two of the residence halls is a breezeway.  I loved the scene that was presenting itself through the window.

Through the Window

It seemed that there were pink blossoms bursting everywhere.

Spring Pinks and Greens

Pink Against the Morning Sun

I love the pinks of spring, but could not resist taking photos of these back-lit daffodils.  Daffodils, to me, are a sign that spring has arrived.  We found these daffodils at Glencairn Garden.  Glencairn Garden is a beautiful place to visit in the spring.  It is especially gorgeous when the many azaleas there are in full bloom.


As for Phil, we will have to see if there is really more winter weather in store for our area of the country.  For now, I will enjoy these signs of spring as they are presented.  I hope you will get out there and enjoy the sun on your face and the sights and smells of spring.
