I'm not sure what happened to March but it sure has come and gone quickly. While I'm still trying to grapple with the idea of spring the Easter weekend is already before us. The snow has melted in the front yard and glimpses of spring are starting to be seen as the first bulbs push themselves through the soil. In the backyard there is still mounds of snow mixed with inches of wet, sloppy grass by the midday sun.
Our backyard is visited daily by two or three local rabbits and our dog is most interested to greet them and as often as possible. This makes for lots of paw wiping when she gets back in the house and that is a sure sign of spring. I've noticed the birds singing. I don't know if they have always been there and their voices muffled by the snow or they have just returned from a southern winter but it sure sounds nice. The garden is wet and brown but there is hope out and there and a sense of excitement as to the possibilities. Spring is a very welcome sight to me.
May you enjoy your weekend with some rest, sunshine and friends and family.
