we have arrived.
Spring is here, really truly here. Flowers and daylight are in abundance, the songbirds are returning, and the trees have begun to leaf out. The rhythm of our days has shifted, and we are now spending our time almost entirely out of doors in the garden, at the park, in the woods. Spring is the season of a muddy footed mama. I spent Mother's Day, the entire day, out in the garden. The work of moving earth, shaping beds, pulling weeds, planting seeds may not be everyone's idea of a perfect Mother's Day, but for this mama, putting my hands in the earth is good medicine. I spent the day listening to the birds, feeling the cool air moving in, and working a small piece of our yard into our future garden. It was a perfect day. Here are some photos to celebrate the arrival of spring.
