The world’s favorite season is the spring.  All things seem possible in May.

April 30th - Spring finally made  it to Ohio

An optimist is the human personification of spring.

Susan J.Bissonette

Spring came way back in March for some, but not here until finally this week.  At long last, got some warmer weather and flowers are blooming.  Tiny leaves are forming on the trees and I feel so much better.

The pictures today are of my daughter and her family who came over to help me with the yard work this week.  It was so nice to have company.  We stayed at a safe distance picking up sticks and branches that were left over from the winter.  It’s a job that had to be done before the yard mowing could begin and it’s usually a back breaking job for me.  But this year they decided to come by and help me out.  They got the job done twice as fast as I could have got it done.

Not only am I happy about the weather, but I’m thankful for all their help.  I’m ready now for the weeks ahead when I will be mowing the lawn.  I never complain about that as it’s a good way for me to get fresh air and exercise.

Every spring is the only spring - a perpetual astonishment !

Good looking landscaping crew you've got there! :) What a novel way in which to safely visit one another and enjoy the Spring-like weather.
