spring at last

The calendar says that March 20 was the first day of Spring, but let the record books show that the real first day of Spring in Seattle this year was April 3. It is simply glorious outside today.

I weeded the raspberry patch this afternoon. It was the first time I've worked in the garden this season and it made me blissfully happy. I get lost out there, addicted to the warmth of sun on my back, the sound of birds hopping between branches, the smell of earth and new life.

I know this giddiness will probably fade, but right now I feel like turning my computer off until early October and spending every one of my precious nap-time minutes in the garden. If you don't see me for awhile, that's where I'll be...
