Dear Spring...

I love all seasons. Each time a new one comes around, I say it's my favorite. Each one just brings a lot of beauty and excitement. This spring has been particularly eventful already, but I'm looking forward to relaxing days coming...soon? Nah. But I'll take any break I can get!

I love my backyard. We have a park literally right behind our back yard and an empty lot to the side, so we're pretty much as secluded as you can get living in the city limits. I love it. I love being in town but having that alone feeling, too. And I love the trees blooming in our back yard. I'm getting beautiful irises soon and some gardenia and Jane magnolias. I can't wait!!

And I get to play with this majestic feline all the time!! Isn't Apollo gorgeous? She is such a sweet, fluffy kitten!

Someone else who really enjoys the warmer weather is the Voo...

This was taken right before Apollo went in full military stealth mode to sneak-attack Vicki. It's one of her -- Apollo's, not Vicki's -- favorite games. Vicki pretty much hates it.

And, naturally, no spring day is complete without a little cheer from this adorable little munchkin of Misti's.



Vicki, of course, had to see what all the fuss was about.

And, yes, it is raining -- pouring, actually -- right now, but I'm looking forward to a very sunny weekend in all aspects. =)

I love Spring too - it really is my favorite. You are so lucky in where you live. It's the best of both worlds!

Cannot wait to see your irises! My dogwood is out of control gorgeous right now. I love Spring!

And yes, Apollo might be the prettiest kitty I've ever seen. If she goes missing, I don't know anything...

We had a ton of rain last week which gave way to the most beautiful of sunny, warm days. I am loving our spring.

Gardenia and magnolias? Be still my heart. We have a gorgeous peony bush which will, thanks to said rain, produce the most heaven sent peonies in the next month or so. Divine, simply divine. I adore spring so much.
