“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett
Jack & Jude eating breakfast on the wood deck for the first time this year.
How do you describe a rain storm that makes you feel alive?
The sounds and smells and gushes of cool wind that enter the home are inviting and welcome.
I never longed for Spring as a child, but as an adult I find myself soothed and revived by the season.
And as of late, watching a plant grow has become one of my favorite things.
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
- Margaret Atwood
The "tickle me" plant seeds I bought online last week for my boys arrived today. I hope my green thumb continues to grow. I want my boys to love planting like I do, and tomorrow we're making a special trip to Lowe's to pick up even more seeds for sowing.
Here's to new hobbies, new loves and a good thunder storm that fills your house with life.
