The last few days around the farm have been divine! It has been so warm that I happily wandered about without a coat – a heavy fleece jacket was all I needed! Yay!
Last evening, after my lesson was finished, I decided to rummage around in the flower bed nearest the front entrance… somewhere beneath the strange, alien weeds that grow during the winter (????) is a little section of Muscari (often referrered to as “Miniature Grape Hyacinth”). Guess what! There were beautiful little sprigs of newly sprouting bulbs! SPRING IS HERE!
I don’t believe what any weather man or almanac tells me (they are never right) – my little flowers are clear indicators that Spring is very much on its way in! Not to mention, my husband saw his first Robin yesterday (I didn’t see a Robin, but I did see a nesting pair of Downy Woodpeckers while on the Flint River Trail walking). I’m smiling really big as I type this 🙂
It’s raining today… which is okay. It gives me an opportunity to finish a few inside things that have been neglected since the pretty weather outside hit 🙂 Like, assembling the next-to-the-stove shelf that I decided to build from scratch. Heh.
Enjoy the beginnings of Spring!
