It's been awhile since I've walked around my yard; at least a couple of weeks. With the lousy weather and full schedule, I guess I haven't been able to get any fresh air. When I finally did make it outside today, I couldn't believe how everything had grown (must be all the rain we've been having), including the WEEDS! Usually we host Mother's Day and that "encourages" us to get the yard all spiffy...not this year, my brother and sister-in-law hosted at their house. I hope this weekend brings us some weed picking weather, because we have lots of work to do.
Spring is a favorite season of mine because it's so exciting for me to see all the gardens fill in and the flowers bloom. All the hard work and we're starting to reap the benefits! I love being surrounded by gardens of flowers (even if they do have a few or a lot of weeds).

A weed is but an unloved flower.

Hmm, in that case, maybe I should leave the weeds...
