I had a wonderful end to the week yesterday with a couple really fun classes at Firefly Fibers. Days like yesterday remind me how much I will miss teaching. I am not kidding when I say I have the best students on Earth!
When I got home from work I took the pup out for a few rounds of fetch. I discovered that while I was away, the sun & warmth — not to mention the last few days of rain — allowed a few of our perennials to bloom. I am still waiting on our irises, plum tree, & quince tree, but I do have some blooms to share with you today.
More life is waking up every day. Today I heard chimney swifts over the house for the first time — a true sign that warm weather is here. Their chittering is an unmistakable sign of spring. I hung my hummingbird feeder & put out the bird bath. There are bees buzzing around the blossoms and the grass is growing. The only question that is up in the air… when will I need to break out the lawnmower?
