Signs of Spring

Ahhh...the signs of Spring. No, I'm not just referring to the Kleenex in my hand and the redness in my eyes. I'm talking about all of the color that has magically popped up around me. The green that has started peeking out of my brown lawn. The pinks and purples that are dotting many of the trees as I drive home from work. Even as an allergy sufferer, how can you not love this time of year??

Although it seems like I've put countless hours of labor and love into my yard, alas, it's only been two years and I don't have too much to show you at this point. But I know there are good things in store. Countless bluebonnets waiting to make their grand (at least to me!) appearance. The peach tree which will soon be full of lovely pink blooms. And the spring/summer vegetable garden that's beginning to take shape. Mostly in my mind. After all, it's barely mid-March and a late freeze could be ready to strike when I'm not paying attention. Expect to hear more about the veggies in a couple of weeks.

Until then, I'll leave you with a few shots of some of the happiness I'm finding in the yard.
