Yesterday, I hung a small load of laundry beneath the locust tree. The sun warmed my cheeks as I reached up with each peg. Blue skies with puffy white clouds floated overhead. "We made it," I whispered.
I spied the vivid green of wild narcissus standing tall among the dried and broken branches of the hedgerow. "You're back," I breathed.
I watched our sleepy, lazy winter cat transform back into a stealthy, woodland hunter. "Beware." I warned the birds and field mice.
And how about you? What signs of the changing season are you seeing in your backyard?
p.s. Thanks Jan for including my above clothesline in today's white selection in the Poppytalk Spring Colours week!
