Spring Fever

These days after I wake up and throw on some clothes, it's time to grab the dog and head out to the garden to see what new exciting things have popped up overnight.

I arrive at school to pick up my children late with catkins and inchworms stuck in my hair and mud patches on my jeans. My hands are always dirty.

I wander the patio before bed to get one last sniff of the lilacs before I sleep and I'm up by 6:30am to see if more blooms have emerged since sunrise.

I have big and little jars of flowers all over the house and everything is covered with yellow pollen dust since I refuse to close the windows. The heat will be here before we know it and I want to enjoy the air while it is pleasant.

I love spring.

You're not the only one with pollen dust all over! (In our house, it coordinates beautifully with the cat hair ...)

You make it sound so lovely....but I cannot imaging being anything but TIRED in the morning. Birds chirping would make me GRUMPY I think.

Maybe I need biological clock rehab.
