The calendar has said that it is spring for a week or so, although there have been no signs of it around my house. I spent a bit of time working in the yard this weekend. Yes, I'm still cleaning up from last month. Although the grass seems a bit greener, things still look very bleak. My yard has had a complete transformation, and I'm still adjusting to the change. I keep telling myself it will get better when spring gets here. But, every day I look out on to the now emptier lot that has been nearly stripped of nearly all its character, and I'll
admit it makes me a little sad.
Then today, I came home and was greeted by a little, sunny friend that has been away for almost a year. Spring did finally arrive at my house too!
