I'm so HAPPY that Spring is finally here. For me, there are only 2 seasons: cold and Summer. Spring is just early Summer, and Autumn is just late Summer. I'm already thinking of all the warm weather things to do. Is it too early for watermelon? Margaritas? Flip flops? I think not.
I have a flowering shrub of unknown origin by my driveway. Anyone know what it is? The blooms are sort of magnolia like, but there are no waxy leaves or cones.
This week has been unseasonably warm. I've done so many "firsts of the season"
1) Turned on my car air conditioner
2) Slept with the windows open
3) Worn flip flops
4) Eaten our meals outside
5) Fired up the grill
6) Drank a Corona on the wide steps of my deck
We're off for the day on an exciting adventure which I'll post about later. Here's a hint: One has moving parts, and the other is very sharp, and they're both very heavy.
