Spring is in the air
"The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”
Therese of Lisieux
Okay, the weather is wonderful today. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the sky is a beautiful blue, and flowers are blooming. Last August I bought my house, and before winter I had the front yard landscaped with the help of friends. Now, I can't wait to start on the side of the house. My plans eventually lead to the back yard, for a relaxing retreat. I found this picture, and thought "perfect". It won't happen this year, but maybe some day. A girl can only dream. For now, I am just going to enjoy the sunshine and my day off.
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring, the Vernal Equinox. I am so ready for Spring to begin and I am already enjoying the sun being out a little bit longer in the evening.
So everyone enjoy and embrace Spring.....
