Spring has Sprung!

"Spring is nature's way of saying, 'let's party!' " ~Robin Williams

That's exactly how this beautiful time of year is making me feel. The sun is warm, the roses in my front yard are blooming [actually they never stopped blooming, not even in the middle of the winter], my little redbud tree in the back yard is covered with purple flowers, there is popcorn popping on every apricot tree in sight, and I even have red strawberries happening in the back yard. And best of all, the bluebonnets are back, poking their little purple heads up all over the place. Making me smile. A lot.

Time for a party!

I love spring in Texas! I'm trying to soak up as much as I can before the heat comes to get us!

Oh, I love it when the bluebonnets bloom. That is one of the things I miss about Texas. They were everywhere. Can't beat the Texas weather!
