One of the things both Sandi and I have always liked about our apartment is the back porch which overlooks the creek. Sandi likes to sit outside and work on her craft projects or watch the wildlife--human and otherwise. I also like to be out on the porch as much as the weather and my own body will tolerate. Back in the day, I used to hike¸ go fishing, and do all sorts of things outside. These days I can barely move so I spend time outside sitting on the porch reading and watching.
I knew for sure winter was over a couple of weeks ago when the fish and turtles started appearing in the shallow water below us. Not to mention the fact that the water moccasins are swimming in the creek in the evening as they move up the channel from right to left. Again yesterday evening as Sandi and sat outside for a little while we heard crickets chirping.
For the second weekend in a row the water craft are back in the creek.
And then there is this. In addition to trees budding out all over the complex and surrounding neighborhood, we already have strawberries in the pot.
Yep….Spring is here. Probably means it will be 104 in three weeks. If that long.
