I don't know about the rest of you, butt my first day of Spring was just about perfect.
My MOM had to mow the yard, HAD to!! We have had an extremely mild winter, especially for an area that is known to have "The Greatest Snow on Earth".
Of course this make MOM and me a little worried about the water situation this summer, butt for now I am really enjoying the blue sky's, warm sun, and the smell of fresh cut grass.
"Smell that Billy, that's the smell of Spring."
Another amazing thing about Spring around my home is this. This is an old tree stump in my yard. MOM was going to remove it a few years ago until we discovered the birds use it to crack open nuts.
I tell you what, those birdies sure are smart. Crazy thing is we do not have a nut tree in my yard. I don't know where the birds get these nuts butt this is the place they choose to dine, on my old tree stump.
Here is another sure fire was to tell that Spring is here. No it's not the freshly cut grass behind me.
It's this chair. When MOM pulls this out I know that the days are growing longer, the sun shines more, and the birds are singing in the tree.
My MOM has had this chair since she was in her early 20's! It's old, falling apart, and every year MOM "fixes" it by taking off the old brittle duct tape from the previous year and puts on new and more duct tape. I mean seriously look at it, I can stick my head through it no problem. Butt she loves this chair. Oh sure we have a small patio table and chairs. Butt it's this chair that MOM will choose every time to sit in and watch the world go by. It's little things like that that makes me love her so. Just because it's old and needs some help in keeping it together she still keeps it and loves it all the more.
Yep Spring is here and I thank the Lord above for the beginning of a new season.Blessings,
