Not much longer until Spring officially arrives. Here in Minnesota it actually has appeared a bit early. Last year it didn't arrive until the middle of April. Although I love Winter weather, I must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed spending time in my backyard yesterday listening to the birds. The grass is not yet green and the buds on tress are barely visible, but with the bright blue sky it was beautiful.
My grandchildren spent the day outdoors playing with friends they hadn't seen much of all winter. My son-in-law had spent part of last fall building a fence for the yard. Because of that my two-year-old grandson has been able to freely roam around without his Grandma or parents following him around to keep him reigned in. It was a very calming and relaxing day for us all.
