Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

April is doing it!

Look! Look!! Hostas and lillies! Really, they are. Those unpreposessing little greeny things will, in a few weeks, be lovely strong leafy plants. And in a few months, they will bloom with lovely fragrant flowers. Oooo! Oooo! I can hardly wait!

The plum tree is blossoming. If the hail doesn't strip the branches bare, we may get some sweet, succulent, sensual bites of bliss this summer. What is so wonderful as a sunwarmed plum nestling deliciously in the palm? Sugar is not so sweet!

The magnolia is just rocking out. I forget every spring to get the before and after photos. As the blooms open, the branches sink and droop by several feet in a week. Last Monday, I could walk under the tree with ease. Today, branches are about waist level. Glad it's not my job to mow.

And the weather has been very April-y. On the 30 minute trip home from work, I drove through seven seperate hail squalls, interspersed with sunshine. On the freeway, when the sun hit, steam rose from the pavement in a kind of groundfog. It's good to be home. And oh joy, there's still sunshine at 6PM! I lovelovelove spring!

    Spring is lovely! I like wandering around in my garden in the mornings seeing what's new, too.

    They're talking snow today. I thought it was spring.

    I love spring, too. Even if it means cold nights and frozen cars in the morning. It's so wonderful to leave work and walk to the train carrying my jacket, just enjoying the sunshine on my face.

    I love the feeling of spring, and all the green-ness and warmth. My only beef with the season is that there's so much rain here. Lots and lots and lots of rain. It makes for a spectacular fall, but a pretty dreary spring sometimes. Still, I guess that just makes me treasure the sunny days all the more.
