Spring has Gesprungen!

 

Spring has sprung!

“A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows.” –Doug Larson

I feel like the ornery bear who has finally come out of hibernation and gotten it’s first bite of something truly delicious.  Gardening, watching the bulbs come up, the blossoms pop, hearing the grass ask if it’s okay to turn green now, oh and seeing the obnoxious weeds make their inevitable appearance, brings life to this girl bone-tired of winter.  It really makes me feel quite giddy.  Please forgive the disturbance if you see me hopping around the yard like a cat high on catnip (Nepeta cataria kingdom Plantae, order Lamiales, in the Lamiaceae family, genus Nepta, Species N. cataria).
