There is just something about it that makes you want to put off cutting the grass. Whenever I see an unusually large lump of it I want to take my shoes off and go walking through it. Nothing is as welcoming in spring as the ability to once again head outside barefoot with your toes on fluffy green grass and soft cool mud.
Who could forget about the blossoms! I have redbud trees in my front yard and I really do enjoy it when they are in bloom. Last year, I had my trees trimmed a little late in the year. The guy who did them didn’t think so; however, he was wrong because they never bloomed! I was so disappointed! The one good thing is that this year they seem to be extra bright. I don’t know if it is because I did not get to see them last year of if they have just been saving it all up; whatever the reason, I am really enjoying it.
Of course then there are the birds. Who could forget about them? After I mowed my backyard on Friday a Robin came down and seemed to collecting something from the newly cut grass. I have a very strong ‘itch’ to get a bird bath and feeder; however, I already spend too much money on animals! O well… just part of the season I guess.
Speaking of ‘itching’, has anyone had the garden ‘itch?’ I sure have! The Farmer's Almanac predicts one more ‘cold’ sweep before spring starts so I am desperately waiting before I spend money and have a small plot of dead nothings. Of course that is probably what will happen anyway!
O well… I hope you are enjoying opening your doors, windows, and turning on your ceiling fans. I hope you are enjoying walking through the lawn and garden section at Lowes or Wal-Mart and spending money you probably shouldn’t!
