Haven't reached this stage yet ~ this photo is from last April. But, today was the best!!! Surely Spring has truly decided to arrive and stay. The temperature was PERFECT! I was outside in a tank top and flip flops working in my flower garden ~ raked the remaining Fall leaves from their hiding places, transplanted a cactus that was too close to Jake's favorite path (nasty long pricklies), trimmed a few bushes, filled the birdfeeder and put out one of the birdbaths. The fountain is filled and running and now the warm sun can help the flowers push through the earth and bring smiles to my face.
Spring is a time of renewal, a time to be happy. Today was a good start.
