Today we had a reprieve from winter. It was sunny and the temperature was right around 60 degrees. Absolutely beautiful! I took the opportunity to cut back some of my grasses and to do a little cleaning in the flower beds.
I was deliriously happy to be out in the garden. I couldn't help but smile as I did my work. The trees and shrubs have tiny little buds on them and some of the perennials already had green growth underneath the decayed leaves. Ahh... the promise of spring. It won't be long and I'll have lilacs blooming again.
