Today was another one of those beautiful spring days- upper 60’s to lower 70’s all day, blue skies, sunny. Just perfect. I love this time of year. The birds are back and we’re in that two week phase where everything goes from brown and gray and explodes into green and yellow.
I like to take a drive every day this time of year just to survey the daily changes. It starts with the daffodils and the forsythia, then the grass gets more and more lush and the trees start to grow leaves, and the empty hills have a shock of white from the dogwoods which is slowly overcome with the dark green of the forest.
The air is sweeter, too, and I get to sleep with the windows open and wake up feeling truly rested. The best time of year.
There have been a lot of birds in my oaks and maple I planted out front, so yesterday I went and bought ferns to hang on the front porch so my birb families will come back to and have a nice B&B to raise their families in. I’m even going to move a feeder from the back yard to the front, because I think the deer are done coming into town for a while (athough if they do and disturb the feeders, that’s ok, too, and it would partially be my fault from all the bags of discount apples I have bought this year and thrown in the yard for thm to eat) as there is enough to forage in the woods now.
Just the best.
