Happy 1st Day of Spring!

Spring has finally arrived!  Many of the trees have erupted in bright shades of pink, purple and white. Suddenly the butterflies, bumble bees and dragonflies are touring my back yard, their wings dancing in the sunlight.  It seemed as though the season's magic occurred overnight- suddenly it's Spring!

I'm filled with excitement and anticipation.  Plans are underway for a flower garden and a start to our back yard woodland garden. The hummingbirds will be arriving soon, exhausted from their long journey across the Mississippi gulf, so I'll hang out feeders filled with sweet sugar water to help them replenish their energy.  Our entire yard is scattered with pine straw and autumn's leaves so it's time to bring out the rakes.  There's much to do, but I'm ready!  

I hope your first day of Spring has been a good one!  May you all have a wonderful weekend :)
