May Long Weekend

Here we are in the long weekend of May and moving toward the end of the month already. It's now the fresh green of new leaves and the earth around my place has been totally transformed into a glorious living garden. It's pure pleasure to go walking or for a drive and see how the North has been transformed from a frigid white to a vibrant green and to see people out in their yards, planting and enjoying the sunshine. We have done the yard clean-up, mowed the grass for the first time this season and have plans to add shrubs and a larger flower bed. I a painted fresh coat on the windmill and our two porches will get a fresh coat of stain as soon as we hit another sunny weekend. I even cleaned the inside of the car out and vacuumed all the grit and dirt from the carpets and washed the mud from the mats.

Spring seems to infuse us with energy.....and that feels good!!
