|I was surprised by this flower stalk I found |
on my rhubarb yesterday!
I love being surprised by all the little buds and shoots popping up everywhere, even though I've realized over the past few years that I don't have as green of a thumb as I thought I did. I seem to do best with plants that thrive on neglect, but it is fun seeing some of the perennials that I planted last year or the year before come up again. Maybe I would do better if I lived somewhere where I didn't have to wrestle with this rocky red clay soil and fight off the fiercely determined critters that want to sample my hard work...
|The extent of my gardening this year.|
And then there is something slightly maddening about springtime as well: gorgeous weather like this is definitely not conducive to studying. On top of that, I tend to get a terrible case of itchy feet around this time of year and each time I get in the car I am tempted by the open road and thoughts of impromptu cross country road trips. It was a grueling weekend as far as homework goes, but luckily for me, spring break started today! And now, I am turning off the computer and going to do some much needed... spring cleaning.
Maybe I have been watching too many princess movies lately, but I have this strange urge to throw open the windows and sing out for some little animal helpers...
We finally watched Enchanted the other night, too, but this one makes me a little squeamish!
What is your favorite time of year? What is your favorite thing about spring? Do you get a travel bug like I do when the weather warms up?
