Spring, Spring, Spring!

I love spring!  And yes, even here in SE Texas we have spring.  This year we actually had a winter too – boy was that a long day!  I am so looking forward to complaining about the summer heat!

We have had a lot more “grey” days than we are used to – how do folks in the NW handle it?  I need my vitamin Sunshine!

I stepped outside this morning because I could hear equipment in the neighborhood, 7:00 am is a little early for that here.  Well they are completing the last manhole for the new sewers they have been installing for the last several months.  A new road is next – woo hoo.

Oh yes, I digressed, I stepped outside and Spring was there to greet me – at first I was just going to take a quick iPhone photo to text a picture of the grapefruit tree to my wonderful hubby – then the smell of Jasmine caught my attention – had to take a photo so then I toured the yard and I thought I would share with you.  Once again –  these are quick iPhone photos – no editing.

Be sure to get out and enjoy spring – it doesn’t last very long around here!

Here’s to a bountiful harvest!
