Spring Discoveries

This photo was the first sign of spring in our new home. The promise of bulbs pushing through the last snow…

Well the snow has officially melted and we are having extremely lovely weekend weather. Of course we started working outside today and my husband John found all kinds of treasures as he was cleaning up the backyard. The previous owners had lived here more than 20 years and their grandson grew up in the house, so there are signs everywhere of him growing up… From an old Tonka dump truck to the treehouse that had been torn down to rocks stacked to make a fire pit. We both went through things thoughtfully. Finding an old wind chime and scouting a spot to place it. I sorted through potted perennials with plans to plant them in hopes they will spring up again. We even found a fallen St Francis and found him a new place to stand among the garden. Cleaning up  and adding touches to make it our own. Spring is showing promise of new discoveries.
