All you young whippersnappers won't remember this, but there was a commercial on TV a loooong time ago where a woman standing outside a store the night before a big sale has her hands on the store window peering in and is saying
"open, open, open".
That's exactly how I feel about Spring.
Especially this Spring.
Baby, it's cold outside.
The air outside is brisk and breezy.
Not complaining after the HOT summer we had last year, but...
Nothin' is blooming and it's already March 21st
and we live in the South.
I'm just waiting for those budded out leaves to
"open, open, open"
Ok, truth be told, our Bradford Pear has already bloomed and is starting to turn green,
But our woods look still show no signs of life
and I REALLY want to step outside my basement door and see this:
And sit for a spell on our patio in the woods
without a jacket on.
And take a walk through the woods and look up at all the glorious LEAFED OUT trees.
Oh, there is sooooo much work to do to get the yard to look like this...
Our backyard is looking pretty rough right now
Guess what we're working on this weekend?
and the next month
Is it Spring where you are yet?
