Signs of Spring
I have some sunflowers coming up. Lots of volunteer sunflowers
that I don't think will get to stay as they are all willy-nilly all
over the place. It does make me happy though to see signs of spring.
On my patio this afternoon it hit 80 degrees. I wanted to celebrate.
This is the lovely green grass next door. The only time
the place I live is green. Most the time I just live with shades
of brown. I wish I had a flock of sheep or goats to graze this down.
Of course the picture of my fence with the green next to it.
I had a lovely day today. I opened the doors so I could let in fresh
air. I know I am going to pay for this. It will turn into winter pretty soon.
When I got home today, I had a package in the mail. I wasn't expecting
anything then I saw the name and I was so excited. It from dear sweet Kim
who has the sweetest blog called Millie's Mats. She has taught me so much
about rug hooking. She is very patient with me.
Here is the lovely mat she sent.
I just wanted to share it with you today.
This has been a lovely day, I wish I could bottle it and send
you all just a bit of warm air. I noticed that the pear
trees across the road are starting to bloom.
I feel my mind beginning to slip. You know, planting
flowers, cleaning the flower beds, chopping weeds,
dreaming of gardens. All of that stuff that happens
in the spring. Forgetting it will be 100 degrees when it
will all need to be weeded.
Oh well, life is to short to not dance in the spring.
Have a lovely Tuesday.
