Our days have warmed up nicely, and all those April showers have surely graced us with an abundance of May flowers.
Grass seems to be greener, and blossoms seem to be brighter this Spring, it could be my imagination or a longing desire to see nature returning in all of her Glory.
Days are not as they used to be, we're learning to cope, life goes on.....

Spring started with lots of sunshine, flowers were budding and trees began to bloom.
Two weeks later, we had freezing temperatures and snow in the higher elevations.
Everything tender and ready to bloom was covered with sheets to protect the young buds.
The Clematis was one of the plants I feared would succumb to the frost, but yesterday after uncovering everything, I was given a lovely surprise.
Under the warmth of the sheet ,the vine had blossomed beautifully and perfect.

A concoction of ground beef, onions, carrots, and peas cooked in a beef gravy and tomato sauce, with herbs and spices; then topped off with mashed potatoes and browned in the oven until the potatoes are nice and crusty.
I buy the Colman Shepherd's Pie mix, available through Publix grocery stores, on the English import isle.
If it's not on hand, then the gravy part is made with oxo's or beef bouillon cubes and tomato paste, rosemary, thyme, garlic, and parsley.
Accompanied by boiled cabbage, mashed it with lots of butter, and fresh pepper, that's how my mum used to serve it.

Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.
Walk softly and carry a big carrot.
Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.
There’s no such thing as too much candy.
All work and no play can make you a basket case.
A cute little tail attracts a lot of attention.
Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.
Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.
Some body parts should be floppy.
Keep your paws off other people’s jellybeans.
Good things come in small sugar-coated packages.
The grass is always greener in someone else’s basket.
An Easter bonnet can tame even the wildest hare.
To show your true colors – you have to come out of your shell.
The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.

Our typical March weather roars in like a lion, tornado warnings, high winds and torrential rain.
The temperatures in the mid-seventies, perfect for Spring clean-up, except the rain continues to fall by the bucket-load.
A flock of wild turkeys have taken up residence in the yard, standing in the rain, as if they are enjoying a gentle shower.

A few days of warm sunshine, and everything is unfolding from a winter's sleep.
Fingers crossed Mother Nature is not playing a joke.
I still would know that flaming thrill,

I know that spring is upon us, when the Redbud trees start giving out their beautiful pink buds.The redbud is a tree that is valued far more than its small size might suggest. This lovely harbinger of spring has been called “a breath of fresh air after a long winter” and no less than “one of our most beautiful native trees” writes tree expert Michael Dirr, of The Arbor Day Foundation.
But there she is again, emerging from her own winter of storms, freeze, winds, and drought, still standing, still surviving, still blooming, still giving.

An hour forward to Daylight Savings Time, payback for that extra hour of sleep, we enjoyed so much back in November.
Spring is not far behind, just six short days, what a lovely thought...…
