Spring is finally here. It felt like forever waiting for the winter to end. Winter seemed to refuse to exit until last week. It's been really warm since then. Belle and I have been enjoying the outdoors. She loves running on our lawn and playing basketball with me on our driveway. When a friend of mine and her two kids came to visit us from New Brighton, we took an afternoon walk together... it was refreshing. P and I and our little Belle have also started our after-dinner daily walk around our neighborhood. The little girl enjoys it because now that she is bigger she gets to actually walk and not have to sit on her stroller. Now, she gets a lot of exercise. She needs it... and loves it.
On Saturday, we did a lot of yard work. P was raking our lawn and cleaning our garden beds. I was planting flowers. We love having annuals in our garden beds because their blooms seem to last from spring through fall. I still have to study more about planting flowers in our place. The perennials are difficult for me to figure out. I still want to someday have the most beautiful flower garden- one that has a lot of blooms at least on spring through fall. Anyway, on Saturday while planting flowers under the nice warm sunshine, I remembered my mom. She loves planting flowers and is very patient with caring them. I'm not sure if I will ever have the same amount of patience and passion for flowers. I love flowers around the house but I'm not as hardworking as my mom and other ladies in gardening.
I am happy that it's been raining since yesterday. It's sporadic though. I just can't wait to see a green mini-jungle in our backyard. I'm kind of tired of the brown dead branches on the trees. I want colors!!! These rains we have now will definitely bring colors in a few days. Can't wait.
