~*Happy Spring*~

Happy SPRING to all my Friends!

These jonquils are always the first to bloom & welcome the season. We have them scattered all over the yard. Their bright, yellow blooms are so cheerful!

Yesterday was rainy and cold here. We were only in the low 50s... but Tony still managed to man the grill for the big family March Birthday party. We had a wonderful family day. The only thing that would have made it better... would have been if the weather yesterday was like the the weather today... expected high 70s by afternoon & BRILLIANTLY SUNNY!

Trinity dug his bike out of the barn this morning and is already making laps around the driveway...

I did quite a bit in the yard last week. One thing I do each year is make a temporary border for our every~expanding poppy patch in the backyard. I don't want them to be trampled by footsteps... so they need something to mark them & keep them safe while they are growing & blooming. I loaded the pick~up with logs & limbs from the back and simply set them around the edge. I've got an old washtub in the center that will hold another blooming plant later in the season. It fills a bare spot in the bed. Once the poppies bloom and seed out... we will just mow them down. The limbs I've gathered will just be taken back to the pile in the back. Simple...make~do... and primitive...

Wishing you all a glorious Spring and many warm smiles...
