Spring is in the air in our neighborhood today. I think spring is my favorite time of the year. Everything is coming back to life and blooming and singing, and playing and just begging for us to enjoy!
There is nothing like waking up in the morning to the songs of the various birds. There is nothing so sweet as the birds songs of spring.
We have a day here and there that is just so warm. We seem to get called back to reality quickly, when the cold hits again. I figure each of those 'treats of warm' that we get, just gets us a little closer to the full beauty of spring. I think it is about 29 days till calendar spring! YAY!
Today we are supposed to get in the 70's! Tomorrow's highs will be 30+ degrees cooler.
I put my spring door decorations out today. The ones that were up for the holidays were simple red and pinecones - so nothing that specifically said Christmas. I usually leave up until after Valentines Day. Today my doors say "SPRING"!
I have noticed the red tips of the peonies are poking their little noses through the ground. My daffodils are popping up, however it will be a while before I see blooms. The tulips are poking through as well. The trees are getting buds, as well as all the bushes. Weeds are popping up all over! Those never seem to die.
The animals all are all getting frisky. It is fun watching the squirrels run and play - it's like they know spring is coming too.
Momma kitty is setting out in 'her' chair today enjoying the warmth. A nice change from having to stay inside the greenhouse for her. She does stay in when it's cold (her choice), because it is so much warmer - but she loves her some fresh air!!!!
I have all my windows opened a bit today, airing out the house. The minute I opened the 2 side by side windows in the living room, I had all 3 indoor kitties setting up on the desk getting some fresh air!
I guess all of God's creatures love the fresh warm air!!!!!
I know there are those of you who are having summer and extreme heat right now - soon your fall will be coming on. I also feel for those here in the U.S. that still experiencing deep snow and cold. Chins up - it won't be long!
I will continue to spring clean this week, and look forward to warmer and drier days in the near future. I would love to do some yard prep - but it so incredibly muddy. Rain and more rain has seen to that.
Is anyone else spring cleaning? Are you getting the spring itch too?
