It's the Time of Year ....

.... when the grass is green, the flowers are blooming and the trees are budding!

Working in the backyard in springtime is one of our favorite bonding moments. The last two weekends were no exception. We planted herbs and tomatoes, trimmed the shrubs, and pulled out weeds around the apple tree. We were also accompanied by a mama robin nesting in one of the pine trees and visited by a wild rabbit who made her hole just a few inches away from the apple tree.

This is our happy place, no doubt. But this spring is different .... there is a bit of sadness every time we spend time sprucing it  ... in less that two months, we will be in our new place in the countryside where we can plant to our hearts' desire. Although I am very excited about the move, I couldn't help the "separation anxiety" that hits me every now and then. I just hope the happy memories scattered to this space will forever feed the flowers and trees we nurtured  in this slice of paradise .....
