A song of spring

Hello beautiful

As soon as February hits the anticipation starts on a simmer and by

months end it’s on full boil. Spring is my all time favorite season and it

makes me giddy just thinking about it.

I can feel the season approach, there is a certain hopeful energy that fills

the crisp wintry air. I can smell it and I can definitely hear it.  It is the

song of spring and every morning as of late I greet the day on the back

porch to the song sung by a few early birds; the crows and the chickadees

and a loud bird of prey that has been calling for a mate from atop a very

tall pine.

Yellow Crocus and Dragon's Blood Sedum

My mind swims with plans and schemes for the coming season; A Golden

Linden tree for the front yard, roses for the back, a new stepping

stone path and an extended herb garden. 

 I get quite ambitious this time of year but rarely do I achieve all my goals

in any one season. That is just fine with me as I have learned to take these

things slowly in order to fully appreciate the whole experience.

Dragon's Blood Sedum with Fern

It gets quite rainy here in the Pacific Northwest.  That is why it is so green

You get used to it and learn to take advantage of the rare sunbreaks

to pop outside and breathe it all in. The flowers love it as well.  I the catch

the happy yellow crocus greeting the warming rays of the late winter sun. 

 What an uplifting sight!
