 Cherry blossoms mark the coming of Spring!

Cherry blossoms mark the coming of Spring!

Spring is the loviest season at Copperpenny Court. Usually is is heralded by the blooming of the yellow daffodils, the chrysanthemums, then the cherry blossoms. The grass becomes greener and most of the dried leaves have blown away. There is a promise in the air.

The local farmer's markets open in Spring, and herbs, vegetables, and fresh ingredients become plentiful. My cooking is resurgent. The two girls get to spend more time outside, and the golf clubs come out of storage — well, hopefully. Next the trips to the gardening stores increase, and the search for plantings, yard maintenance, and decorations. Spring is the time for soil at Copperpenny Court. Soil, and soul.

 Here they come!

Here they come!

 Is this snow?

 Everything smells so good!

 Pretty, but for only a very short time.
