It's finally April!

April is here and it seemed like it took forever to arrive! Usually time flies by too fast, but this past winter, just like the one last year, appeared to last forever. I like wearing sandals instead of shoes and socks, shorts instead of jeans or sweat pants, and blouses instead of sweaters. Of course, living in SE Texas tends to spoil a person and I know I'm definitely one of the most spoiled when it comes to comfort.

I know I'd never last through a winter like they get in the North and North East. Those people are TOUGH!

I spent the morning watering the yard. My deciduous plants and trees are waking up and sprouting baby leaves. They are soooo cute! I really thought we'd lost our hibiscus plants because of the cold winter temperatures, but they're coming back, too, and I'm impressed with their survival skills.

The hummingbirds are back and so are the Purple Martins.

Yep. Spring has sprung!
