spring is my favorite time of the year. i love the weather when it hovers between 60 and 70 and it's sunny all day long. hot weather makes me wilt and i've wished i lived in a place that was always 70! i'm not sure if such a place exists, but i'm pretty sure i could be supremely happy there.
right now in the yard the golden chains are in bloom, our hot pink rhodies are radiant and everything is starting to bloom. all of my favorite flowers are starting to open and it all seems so magical. the summer is fun too but not like spring. the spring is a new start; a time to renew ourselves.
today we spent the day working in the yard, garage sale-ing, and we even played a few games of pickleball with my in-laws.
right as we were gearing up for bed, the kids found a robins nest in the climbing hydrangeas on our deck. all you have to do it look down to see their nest. i remember reading a blog a while back and the gal showed the babies all hatching one by one and then dying one by one. it was pretty sad, but it didn't even occur to me when reading it that she might have been to blame for them dying! i'm sure mama robin didn't like her taking pictures at the nest and she may have abandoned the babies. i'd love to capture their entry into this world, but i think i'll just let them be. we'll just hope they'll make into adult hood.
in my initial excitement however, i did run for the camera to snap these two photos.
aren't they lovely?
