Are we having fun yet?
There were days, probably in April, when I started wondering if leaves would ever appear back on the trees. I reminded myself that when we moved here in July, yes, the trees were green, there was no snow, it melts, warmer weather will come. Well, it finally has. It is a beautiful time of year here. No bugs, little wind, no snow, 72 degrees, blue sky. Flowers do grow here. We have spent the last few weeks getting to know our backyard all over again. The clothesline has been hung, we planted sunflower seeds and started our vegetable garden. Our bikes have been dusted off and visits to the local playground an every day event. One thing I'll say for the winters here, it helps so you never take a beautiful day for granted again.
