I Just Love Spring!

Spring is my favorite season. So, why am I talking about Spring when May is nearly over?  Well, I live in Maine and Spring is slow in getting here.  And, March and April we still had snow and most of this month saw rain---lots of rain!  Last Saturday we saw the sun for the first time in almost 2 weeks, but it lasted only a day.  Then it started raining again. Today, the sun shone bright with temps in the mid-70's.  What a gorgeous Spring day!   I love how the grass 'greens up' after months of snow--and the brown mud of March and April rainstorms.   I also love the look of flowering trees, the tulips, Irises, and the scent of lilacs in the air.  Hearing the sound of lawn mowers is a sweet sound after a long winter of listening to the grinding of snowplows.  Then there's the smell of spring barbeques---ahhh.   And although dandelions can be a nuisance, I happen to like the  weeds--their bright yellow fluffy heads remind me of the sun and the best part are the longer days.  There is a dramatic change in my personality as the days get longer and warmer.  I feel more alive, vibrant and well,....happy!  That's what Spring is to me---the beginning of happiness!  

We don't have too many flowers right now.  Within a week, we'll be planting and in a month or so, I'll share my 'green thumb' with you (for what it's worth).  Thanks for looking, my friends.

Everything around you is looking colorful and beautiful. We are well into our summertime heat with temps already at 108 during the day. Plants are dying off -- only the bougainvillea can survive the heat and are blooming profusely at the moment. Hope you are having a great week. Best wishes, Tammy
