Spring has Sprung!
a bird in the morning, telling me to get-up -
We have sunny skies with high clouds, and a day headed for 74'(degrees).
The birds started singing about 10 days ago, really.
I so look forward to their sound every year.
It means it truly is Spring!

Another reason I know it is Spring?
I have three, count 'em, three daffodils blooming today!
This is a photo taken last year.
Yep, with that big 'ol dandelion right in the middle! Those haven't started blooming yet, but we sure do have the greens!
I also have small prickly weeds already starting in my garden.
Today we are cleaning out my 2 front gardens (pretty small actually).
Michael is going to start in on chopping down our African grasses.
'Winter Interest' they call them here.
We have little ones ( about 3 feet high)
and we have gi-normous ones about 7 feet high!
this is the space I would have put a photo of our 'winter interest'
only I can't find it!
I really want to get outside and get started so just try to imagine it!

Oh yes, I am unashamedly plugging my new website!
TONS AND TONS AND TONS OF FRUSTRATION lie there,
I did get 2 pages up (finally).
Some more spring birds:
and yes...I can't wait for my johnny jump-ups to really get blooming!
I have had a scattered few blooms, plus pansies
all winter long!!
Gotta go now, weeds are calling,
lots of pollen laden dried garden refuse...
Pick your own!
a sign I plan to paint and put in my garden....
