Signs Of Spring

I would love to be able to have a beautiful garden like this one.

Such a beautiful place to have morning coffee enjoying hearing the birds sing. I have a nice sized backyard, but no real-time to care for it. I have a memorial garden for my son Levi who died in a car accident in 2007. I try to plant butterfly plants every season to enjoy. Last year I saw a lone white butterfly fluttering around my yard trying to find a place to land. This year I am plantinga real butterfly garden. I tend to have a black thumb when it comes to gardening, so I need an easy care yard.

Also last year, two birds got into a huge brawl in one of my pine trees. The fight started out on the telephone lines you see. One bird was mouthing off to another bird on the fence. the two entered the pine tree and started fighting. The one bird knocked the other out of the tree to the ground I could not believe it. The bird went back into the tree and fought some more before flying away. I was left with what just happened? Such excitement for a quiet neighborhood as all the kids on the block are now twenty- something.

I think this year eveyone is looking forward to spring; the warmer sunny days,  sitting on the front porch with iced tea. Families are out biking,the kids are outside with chalk, or playing in their battery operated cars, it is fun to watch the kids help mommy and daddy play in the dirt. Time also to tune up the old lawn mower. Everyone’s mood seems to improve with spring. hearing the birds chirp in the morning,(not brawl, just chirpping happily). And of course seeing all the newborn animals.it is fun to drive by the farms and see the calfs, ponies, lambs, bunnies, chickens with the babies gathered around. 

 I can remember when I was a girl, buying my first lamb. What a thrill-untill my brother and I found out you get up at 6 a.m. to start caring for it. Before and after school, we walked our lambes 0ne mile. Jeff and I were in 4-H club together. What treasured memories I have of growing up with all the different animals. Most of my friends envied me for living on our farm. They would come over and ride the horses after school. Those were the good old days when time seemed simpler than now. Jeff and I didn’t have much time to get into trouble because we were busy with the animals and getting ready for the fair. Life is good indeed!
