"All through the long winter, I dream of my garden. On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth. I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar." Helen Hayes
Growing up in California, I never quite had an appreciation for spring. Now that I live in Virginia, I have learned what a wonderful thing it is. We have had a couple of days of warm weather this week. Got to wear shorts. Put on the flip-flops. Opened the windows. Turned off the heater. It's the best feeling in the world.
