Well spring has arrived. Just a week ago we were awaiting a major snowstorm. We didn’t get as much as expected here but it was real nasty with sleet and freezing rain in the mix. Very heavy to shovel but luckily, we have some very helpful boys in the neighborhood who are there shoveling every storm. We are very thankful for them.
However, up where my sons live a bit further up north in NY, they got 22″. We were up there visiting this weekend and got to enjoy the beautiful peacefulness of a walk in the woods.
Today the sun is shining brightly and what snow we still have left here by us is melting away. Our thoughts are turning to our flower and vegetable gardens and I am envisioning a very colorful landscape. We are planning on putting in a few more forsythia bushes and maybe trying some new plants. I think there will be a new fence put up on one side of our property too. We have been talking with the neighbors about getting one up since the one that is there (or what’s left of it) is in very bad shape.
So Spring has arrived. Let’s look forward to what that will bring while looking fondly back on the season that has just passed with the delicious soups, hot chocolate, cozy nights by the fire reading a book, snuggling under a quilt while watching a favorite tv show or movie. All seasons have something special about them. We are about to emerge from our season of “hibernation” and become more active. Welcome Spring. I am ready for you.
Have a good day all. See you soon.
I was just looking at my forsythia and thinking of taking some clippings to spread
