It’s our first spring at our new house and the miscellaneous flora and fauna that live nearby have been trying to make us feel welcome. Just a few days ago, on a wet and rainy night, a salamander crawled onto our patio to greet us. The deer have been leaving their scat all around the edges of our property as if to say, “Hi! We’re here and ready to eat anything yummy that you plant!” A couple of weeks ago we found a clump of daffodils growing in the front yard. I’ve been eagerly waiting for them to bloom. The first gloriously yellow flower finally popped open today.
It really is spring!
