Just planted these pretties yesterday with my little one. We wanted a little bit of spring right by our door, and there we go! It has been so warm and just truly amazing outside this week. It has been in the 70s, with lots of sun and birds and turtles all around. All the critters are out, sunning themselves on rocks to get the best of the day. This week I’ve seen tiny little lizards with blue tails, a pair of mallards and a family of turtles in our pond, all kinds of birds including cardinals and herons, and adorable frogs with long legs. We just got our delivery of our patio furniture, and it is so nice to just hang out on our porch in our patch of sun. Today honestly felt a bit like a vacation with all that sun and a soft place to curl up. This must be what our pond turtles feel like on their rocks!
All of it makes me just want to throw the windows and doors open and burst into song like Maria in The Sound of Music. I’m constantly humming songs from that movie lately (thanks Lady Gaga!) and this spring justly deserves such recognition. But our hills (dunes- this is the Lowcountry!) are alive with the sound of crickets and peepers!
