Spring is Here!

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
-Thomas Blackburn

Or, if that quote is a bit too fluffy, try this on for size:

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.  ~Doug Larson

Personally, I'm partial to this one:

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.  ~Margaret Atwood

Finally! We had a lovely spring weekend. We made the most of it by getting in a fair amount of desperately needed yard work. 
 Chris - filling in around the new garden stairs
 Bailey - doing...well, nothing
Except for maybe compacting the soil of my newly plowed, future vegetable garden

One last quote and then I'm done:

First a howling blizzard woke us,
Then the rain came down to soak us,
And now before the eye can focus -
Crocus.  ~Lilja Rogers
