Spring is here!
Spring has finally arrived and I am so elated to know that warmer days and cleansing rains are here. Spring is such a beautiful awakening after a wintery slumber.
May I also say welcome to my newest readers…giving back is an act of appreciation for y’all that I enjoy doing from time to time.
As I walked through my neighborhood this last week, I took a few moments to watch the honey bees fly from flower to flower like a natural, sweet dance. One yard was plump with violet grape hyacinths, another yard dressed in sweet smelling lacey popcorn balls from bradford pears.
This is my favorite part of spring–rebirth and renewal. I look forward to dancing in the rain with my children (you still do that don’t you) and curiously watching the bluebirds, morning doves, and mocking birds return to my yard. I just saw a female cardinal perched on the fence in my backyard this last weekend. I’ve set out a handmade birdhouse just for them hanging from my pecan trees.
This year will be a bountiful harvest.
In honor of spring, I am giving away this set of four embroidered linen napkins from Pier1imports to one lucky participant. All you have to do is comment here what your favorite part of spring is…
Contest ends Friday night (March 13th, 2009) at midnight. Only one entry per participant, please. TIME’S UP
