Queen For A Day.

This weekend has been very special for me. It's like a fairy godmother came and cleaned all the pollen and dirt off my little back porch, and then on top of all that hard work, filled it up with bright new flowers. How proud can you be after all that? Now that it is spring, and I do say it lightly because the wind is raw outside and has been for two days, I can enjoy being outside on the porch.My daughter-in law was so sweet to do all the cleaning for me. Then she went shopping for the flowers and put them in pots. I'll be grateful. This made me feel like a Queen for the day.

I told my son this cool, or cold spell, is called blackberry winter. He said he had never heard that expression before. That is what my parents use to call it. I asked him if the blackberry were blooming and he said yes, well that's what the old timers called it,  and sometimes it just happens at Easter time. We have a full moon at night and clear azure blue skies in the day, and a light jacket makes it just right.

Every one is anxious to get their yards cleaned up for the Easter holiday. The grass has got to be cut and trimmed, and the vegetable garden has to be planted. It's a busy time of year. When I was a kid out on the farm we were allowed to go barefoot while we planted potatoes. It was so much fun pulling off those old shoes and feeling that cool dirt on your feet. What fun!!
