It was a beautiful day--one of those perfect garden days. There was cloud cover mixed with sun, and the temperature rose like an early summer afternoon. The day carried promises that belie the approaching spring storm. And still, the forecast of rain made today's garden work all the sweeter.
As I pruned, I noticed the small hints of warmer days. New growth is plentiful throughout the yard. The first flowers of spring-blooming perennials took their rightful place among the early blooming bulbs. The fragrance of the hyacinth carried on the breeze and through the tiny buds of leaves yet unfurled. Sprouts of green dot the planting beds. And throughout the day, Pacific watched dutifully from the porch until I called. Then, he would come right to my side and, more than once, he took time to smell the flowers with me.
Today was springtime perfection filled with so many reminders of this season of rebirth.
Happy Easter, my friends.
