Something To Be Said

There's something to be said about...

...painting the patio trim - a year after the job was done!!....

...hanging a new string of lights to replace the burned-out ones....

...staking up a mutant tomato plant that has gone nuts with growth...and only one tomato!
...a quilt drying on the clothesline while the dog snoozes underneath....
...weeding the garden and cleaning it up...
...all while a friend squeeks and skeeters at the world below...
...discovering little tiny pansy seeds! I've never seen this before!!
...sticking your nose deep inside one of your irises that hasn't bloomed for the last serveral years and this morning made its appearance... and drinking in its heady fragrance... remembering childhood days....
...while someone else, namely Gambit, sticks his nose into the rosemary...
...finding the perfect spot for my mom's sundial...now in my garden...
...Bella, who insists on helping in the garden...and munching on a leaf of a newly sprouted catnip plant!
...sipping a tall iced cafe mocha after a job well done....
...and sinking your tootsies into the soft grass of spring.

I love love LOVE your blog! I always think about taking pics of the dog and the flowers and the garden... but am not so much with a camera. :)

I'm spending my day working on my coming week... I was to burnt out on Friday to get any of it done, so here I am on a gorgeous Sunday sitting at my computer... sigh.

I love it! I'm convinced spring happens just so we can get things done around the house AND enjoy it!
