Saturday was a gorgeous day. I swear it was lovely. The sun was shining, the temperature was in the upper 70s and I spent much of the day puttering around the property. The youngest had a fire in the fire pit and it was so nice to sit next to it and see all the beautiful flowers budding around the property.
I swear spring came to visit These Fair Woods. It was here. It was lovely. There was a little rustling in the shed as the flamingos started to stir from their hibernation.
On Sunday I walked around the entire property and made mental notes of what I want to accomplish between now and September.
- clear the trash from the shoreline
- harvest the driftwood
- clear the gardens of weeds and leaves
- get rid of the brambles in the woods
- clean the green off the house
- have above ground gardens installed
There was quite a list. My favorite was actually setting up an example of what exactly I want for my garden. I was told it will be easy and completed before too long. I am not holding my breath because the definition of not too long is different for me than the others in my home.
I found a great piece of driftwood to inspire my creativity.
Today it is raining and the fire is once again burning in the house. It is not a pleasant spring day and I might be fooled into thinking Saturday never happened.
But I know Saturday was beautiful and flowers are blooming. I was smart, I got proof.
The container is a glass I received when I ordered a fancy drink in some restaurant. It gives me hope that fancy drinks of the summer are going to be enjoyed again.
Spring has officially sprung, but the wonderful weather was but a passing friend.
