The spring rains have finally arrived and it’s become my favorite time of year – green season. Between showers, when the sun comes out, everything takes on a green glow, brighter than at any other time. The aura of new life brings renewed hope and energy to the world, and of course reminds me of all the work I have to do to keep up. Soon the lawn, that was still brown a week ago, will need mowing – and I’m still not done raking all the leaves from last fall!
Meanwhile I’m also readying the garden for this season’s planting, as the daffodils begin to open, the blades of iris rise, and the other perennials revive. This weekend we’ll be setting up at the market in Adamstown for the first time this year; it’s the week of the Lancaster quilt show, and we’ll be taking along plenty of fabrics, quilt tops, quilts and more. I guess it’s time to stop blogging and get busy!
