Spring Has Sprung!

Happy 1st day of Spring!

(though here in Florida it's felt like a mix of spring and summer for weeks now)

The the breeze is blowing, the buds are blooming, the bumbles are buzzing, the chimes are chinging, the birds are chirping and busy building nests, and it's gone from rain showers this morning to what looks like it's going to be a clear sunny day. We planted some flowering vines and bushes in the side yard last night just in time to get them a good soaking today ... The kids and I are going to seed-plant some sunflowers and TRY our hand at some zinnias in that plot as well. Will get pics of it and updates along the way ...

The beautiful blossom above is actually a peach colored hibiscus from the front entrance, but the image summed up my feelings for this first day of sweet, sweet springtime ... I actually managed to carve out a scrap of time today to get my art on, which has been slim pickin's for quite some time now. And I intend to


in it! So you enjoy your day too, whatever it brings you!
