Extolling Spring

Hello! I’m back to the blogosphere after a bit of a break over the fall and winter. More on that in a future post.

For now, I’d like to take a moment to extol spring. I’ve been rereading the “Anne of Green Gables” series, and it’s notable that so far in the series, every spring is mentioned in great detail, whereas the fall, winter and summer months are often glossed over. It’s because Anne’s favorite season is spring! And rightly so!

While I can’t so confidently say my favorite season is spring—because I like each season best when it’s here—I can definitely say I’ve been enjoying this one.

Here’s a sample of what my backyard “garden” produces every year, with no coaxing or maintenance on my part. Oh, the bliss.

This bed of violets:

This lilac bush:

This spiky bronze ajuga:

This wall of ivy:

And this dear little path to the front yard:

Isn't spring wonderful?
