What a shame to miss that. It is cold and rainy in NY. I miss my home in Waxhaw

I was just thinking the same thing this morning. Outside my window:

The little brown wrens are chirping and digging around in the flower beds, no doubt looking for pieces to build a nest...

The yellow bell Forsythias are bending ever so gracefully, arching across my driveway...

Most trees have just the beginnings of buds forming, but some are already unfurling leaves - Bradford pears, cherries, maples, blackberry briars..

Squirrels are looking for another tender tulip or daffodil bulb to unearth and munch on...

A mother deer and her young one decide to take a nap just the other side of my shrubbery, not knowing that from my upstairs office, I get a chance to see this tender moment up-close...

My pansies, after the snow bath a few weeks ago, have decided to explode with color. (Guess my farmer dad was right - snow adds a little nitrogen to the soil and gives everything a burst of energy)...

My new neighbor from Florida's lawn is just dayglo green right now...and I haven't the heart to tell him that the heat/drought will kill that tender young grass before summer. But, some things you just have to learn the hard way.

Forecast is for the mid-60's this weekend and I'm looking forward to getting together with some friends to do some community service outside.

Ah, I do love spring in Waxhaw!
