Yesterday, it just rained buckets! I knew the beautiful days we had the last week would not last! It was just a sneak peek - but how wonderful it was to have nice warm sunny days, when the sky was more blue than grey. I can see the buds fattening on the Poplar tree's bare branches, and I know that they will soon be full of birds, waking me up with their love songs, and calling for me to fill the feeders. Spring will come. The world will be green again, then summertime will come, with her warm sunshine and busy days. Are you ready for that?!

And who cannot resist these beautiful, LILLY OF THE VALLEY?! Don't they just remind you of spring! They are so delicate and sweet. These are the flowers I had on my wedding cake . . . many, many years ago! We were married in April, so it was perfect!
