Today is absolutely splendid. The sky has just the right amount of clouds that makes you want to give yourself a hug, take a deep breath and appreciate all the goodness of nature. The backyard is coming alive with bulbs pushing up their buds getting ready to share the beauty within them. I have been gifted with a deep purple crocus a silly squirrel planted in the front yard then forgot. Nice surprise for me. The birds are busy preparing their nests for new offsprings. In Central Pennsylvania, we have to wait until Mother’s Day when the danger of frost has passed to plant annuals besides, we haven’t had our onion snow. I’m certain that mother nature is teasing us. Even so, today would be a good day to board a hot air balloon and soar.
