Spring

I love Spring-time. I've been trying my best to be an optimistic person, and I find that it's easier to see the brighter-side of life when the sun is shining and flowers are blooming. Here in fly-over country, there are still overcast days, and days when the wind is bound and determined to blow every scrap of dirt and dust into the next county (along with assorted lawn chairs and garbage cans). But in-between the dreary days, the cold days, and the blustery days, there are the wonderful, bright, sunshiny days that give life to the beauty of this Earth.

I also love Spring for the promise it brings; of Summer-fun, fresh vegetables, and family reunions. Sunny Spring makes these things seem just that much closer. When it's sunny, warmer, and the flowers are blooming, it just seems that everything good in life is possible and (hopefully) within reach. So, I love Spring. I hope your Spring is full of sunshine, beautiful flowers, and optimism. Don't forget to "stop and smell the flowers" along the way. After all, life is too short not to live it and Spring doesn't last all that long; even in "flyover country."

You live in the most beautiful spring home that ever was! I am so jealous that I can not be there! Please go over and enjoy a drink with my parents on the back deck! Hopefully I will be down soon!

Most beautiful things, those flowers. Our spring didn't seem to last very long either. One day, there were blooms and then poof! they were gone. Spring rains and wind did a number on them. But at least now everything is green!

Waiting for the earth to dry out to begin the planting of little seeds for summer eating and winter preserving...
