How long we have waited for this moment! For the return of the ritual opening of the doors and pausing at the start of day to survey the happenings on the patio.
Such a small thing. But how it colors the whole day.
The air is always so still, no matter what the rest of the day brings. And there's always so much ahead to do.
A little bird song. A bit of fresh air. Green. And a small bloom. The perfect recipe for a perfect spring day. . . .
P.S. Here's a nice recipe post for Hummingbird Cake that I saw on FB! Doesn't that sound perfect for spring?
P.P.S. Have you heard about Carolyn Aiken's new book? She's having a giveaway!
