Yesterday I was sitting here ruminating at the computer and a lady cardinal landed in the tree just outside. The sky was brilliant blue with big, white, cotton candy clouds and a gigantic bumblebee kept banging into the window screen. The leaves are almost fully “leafed” and the apple trees are in full bloom and the lilacs are just starting to open.
I’m not one to wax poetic about the rebirth of the earth, blah blah blah, but damn, that was a long-ass winter and I’m happy to feel the grass between my toes again, and even though the pollen is so thick right now it looks like it’s snowing, I’m so happy to be able to open the windows I could shit mahself. I might even go crazy and make myself some barefoot sandals.
In honor of it feeling deliciously spring-y out there, even though rain is predicted for the forecast all week and the calla lilies aren’t quite in bloom again, here are some really pretty things that make me feel glad that warmer weather is here.
