Happy Spring

This is the 3rd day of spring.

My granddaughter Nora turns 2 today. Two years ago this week, California started the lockdown. I canceled my flight to be with my daughter for her giving birth to Nora. We waited and waited. It was her first birthday when we finally got to see her. Her 2nd birthday party will be the first indoor party we’ve had since the pandemic. It’s very exciting. We look forward to spending time with both Autumn and Nora.

My spring garden would like to sing to you.

“The first bloom of spring always makes my heart sing.” – S. Brown

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” – Audrey Hepburn

“Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment.” – Ellis Peters

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot, and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” – Charles Dickens

“An optimist is the human personification of spring.” – Susan Bissonette

“No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.” – English Proverb

Happy Spring to You!

  • What a cute way to put it, “My spring garden would like to sing to you.” I love your other quotes, too. 🙂 BTW, I left a review of Tina Lost in a Crowd on Amazon.

    • They you so much for your kindness to review Tina Lost in a Crowd, Marsha! I’ll check your review in just a minute! 😍😊
      As far as August, it’s too early for my daughter to know about their summer plans. Last year, they had a vacation with one family for one week, and a vacation with another family for another week. I scheduled to see them and ended up following them. But it worked out because my daughter got a new job and she worked part of the time during the vacations. I helped to watch the kids when she was working.
      Go ahead and plan your August trip with Cee and Terry. It would be great if you could plan around the third week and visit the festival on Friday or Monday, I’ll try to work it out with my daughter.
      Let me know if this is okay. 😊😊

    • We had a fun birthday party, Diana. We had the party at Play Street Museum. My daughter made delicious cupcakes.
      My son-in-law rode his bike by the waterfront and took a couple of photos of the cherry blossom. I always wanted to see the cherry blossom but didn’t have time to do it. I hope to visit the tulip farm on our next trip for Mother’s Day. Thank you for your comment. ❤

      • I’m glad you had so much fun, Miriam. It’s still a bit chilly, but the flowers and trees are blooming in Portland. A tulip farm visit sounds wonderful. 🙂

        • It’s still a little chilly here with a cloudy sky. My daughter bought different colors of tulip and some daffodil bulbs. She gave me some. I haven’t planted all of them yet. I also have some milkweed seeds to plant. Happy spring, my friend! 🙂
