Oh spring, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! I love the lengthening daylight and the possibility to both go to work and return in the sunshine! I love daylight savings time when the evening suddenly get longer. I love the colors of the crocus and the scilla and the wild flowers popping up in the most unexpected places.
Yes spring is here and we are a bit crazy. It was great to come home after our little Easter vacation to find the lawn exposed again and the flowers already blooming. Last year we planted some new spring flowers in our garden and I was really eager to see how they would turn out.
Among other things we added yellow crocus now. We have had blue and white for a long time but never yellow before now. I always admired them in others gardens.
The flowers are not the only thing returning. The birds are arriving, more each day and filling our neighborhood with song. Yesterday I went out for a walk and when I came home I told Renny the birds were singing in chor, but no that’s not quite too. It is nesting time and mating time right now, so they are more like singing over eachother.

Everyone has their message – here is my nest, here is my nest. I’m building here, I’m building here. Come ladies its finished. Come ladies its finished. We’ve just laid eggs, we’ve just laid eggs.
So its time to enjoy my garden again, to dream of cookouts and long summer nights. Because that is really the best part of spring, the anticipation of a long sunny summer ahead!! When you are reading this we are on our way to Bucharest, Romania!! Adventure adventure!! I am really looking forward to it and my Nikon is charging as we speak so stay tuned!!!!
