Hanging on to Spring

Spring has been so long and glorious this year, and yet I’m greedy.  I want it to last longer. I don’t want to let go of…

the lily of the valley’s sweet perfume…

   the dazzling flowers of the rhododendron…

  the splash of color created by our azalea…

 my faithful companion when I garden…  warm, sunny afternoons idly sitting with Bubba on my lap…

 picking spinach just before our meal (doesn’t get fresher than that!)

    I agree…. Except for one thing. I want spring to hang around once the tree pollen stage has passed (which it pretty much has here) so I can go outside and enjoy it. I love lily of the valley…I have some but I need to put some close to the house so I can enjoy.
