FINALLY the days are turning warm and there are flowers popping up everywhere in our yard. Today my sweet husband and I spent much of the morning in Spring Cleanup. I tackled the emerging dandelions and dug out grass that had invaded the flowerbeds. We raked up huge heaps of leaves and pine needles and cut back some of the ground cover that had become too invasive, spilling out of bounds. Larry began scraping paint and tidying up the trim around the garage door and the chimney. By mid day our arms and backs were aching, but it felt good to be setting our yard to rights again. I'm giddy with anticipation to see what color the next few weeks will bring.
