The change of seasons are always welcome to me. I truly don't think I would enjoy living where the weather is constant. It's so exciting to see the earth awakening, coming alive with green shoots of life. In my garden the first flowers that make their entrance are daffodils. Joy happens when I can go out my back door and cut a bouquet.
There will be different varieties of narcissus and jonquil that will bloom in the coming weeks. For now it is a great time to top dress the perennial garden with our compost. I love this black gold that we make. Hopefully we will "feel" like doing it for years to come. If you want to see how we compost you can go Here
The glorious weather took us outside to sit on the patio. Gazing at the first quarter moon, I decided to see if I could get a decent photo. Much to my surprise a bird winged his way into my frame.
I replaced the shamrock banner with one for Spring. I printed this one on card stock years ago. I'm not sure where it came from. I'm thinking it was Ann Drake. It used to hang on the mantel in the Florida Room, but this year I put it in the kitchen.
I'm beginning to place a few Easter decorations around.
Welcoming Spring is always happy for us as we celebrate the birthday of our middle grandson. Saying he is 18 gives this grandmother pause. It seems like yesterday I went to be with his parents as they welcomed their first child home.
For his grandparents, we are grateful to have such a sweet, kind, smart young man in our family. His senior year in high school is virtual. The same is true for his brother as well as his cousin in college. My goodness how this pandemic has affected the children of the world.
