A Break For Some Spring

I've been super busy with thesis stuff now that my "spring break" is over, getting ready to submit, defend and attend conferences. But the biggest news is . . . . drum roll please . . . The A4 is FIXED!!!!! I'm so happy to sleep until 8 with the shades down and to putz around making dinner in the late afternoon. It's so exciting to wonder around our yard to see what things are springing out of the ground . . .

I'm a little disappointed that this is the only bunch of crocuses in our yard

While wandering I always pause at the front door, a little hidden and needs to be repainted black, if the ladder is still up in the garage I might go look for the shudders that are supposed to be on the house.

Daffodils are by far my favorite part of spring, their resiliency blows my mind, they seem to say "I don't care what's in my way I am moving up." This particular bunch is on the inside of the front wall, probably the second most neglected area of our yard.

"Cute" little run-off stream the runs through our yard pretty much only our yard, our adjoining neighbors are either dry or flooded, I have this weird obsession with trying to get the leaves out of it to make it go faster, I'm sure the neighbors love that . . .

Last, the beginnings of the garden, tomatoes, peppers, summer squash, zucchini, herbs and flowers all getting ready to go outside, I started them last week and its so excited to watch them sprout!
