I am on cloud nine! Today was my first day outside to do my yearly Spring clean-up in my gardens. Now just so you don't think I am a Super Woman or something, I actually only got my South Bed and my Front Gardens done. With my trusty side-kick, Sam the Cat by my side, we clipped the stems and stalks, and raked away some of the extra mulch that I put down in the Fall. Always amazes me how much of the shredded leaves are gone by Spring. Mother Natures plant food. The day was sunny and mild with a temp of 61 degrees. Awesome. Already, the place is looking better. I washed the foundation and basement windows and took some time out to chase the cat with the hose (he loves water!) My unused muscles are feeling a bit tired and I have a small blister on one hand, my battle scars of a day well spent. Pretty soon my yard will go from this: To this, and I love watching the transformation! It puts a smile on my face and bounce in my step.And why? In the words of a favorite song of mine: "......And the obvious reason is because of the season, Ma Natures' lyrical with her yearly miracle, it's Spring, Spring, Spring!"
