The first day of spring

The first day of spring has finally arrived!!
 This year has been the coldest in living history and I thought I would never get through it!!
 How I longed to see some kind of bug, butterfly, grasshopper, flower, ANYTHING as long as it was moving and colorful!!
 Now I have spent time in the graden planting seeds and bulbs I bought and I cannot wait for them to pop up!! It is so wonderful to have a bit of a garden again but I must admit that I do have a problem with the porcupines and monkeys eating everything!! LOL!! Oh well, as long as it is spring and things are green, who cares about an actual garden. :)
