Flowers are blooming all over the neighborhood. The sun is shining more. It's true, we're still having the occasional frost warning, but it is easy these days to forgive Mother Nature. I've planted my window boxes and some herbs. And strawflowers, which are my grandkids' favorites because they dry perfectly and are great fairy house decorations. I don't think I'll do much of a garden this year, just tomatoes and herbs and a few flowers probably.
Our local Farmers' Market opened this weekend. Not much to buy yet, of course, but I picked up some local maple syrup and a few potted herbs. I can't wait for fresh local produce!! On the drive home, I saw several hot air balloons. And, while I was visiting her, my sister and I went out for our first soft-serve ice cream cones of the season, my favorite summer treat. :)
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, too. There is so much to be grateful for.
