Spring in His Step

April 8th, 2014

Someone is very happy that spring has finally arrived. Dexter has been scampering around the garden having a good time. He goes out in the winter, but doesn’t stay out nearly as long as he does in the spring. You can tell he’s happy, he runs around the garden following me wherever I go.

I know exactly how he feels – do you?

    Dexter is one very handsome cat.

    I sat out on my front steps yesterday with my older cat. Both of my cats are totally indoors except for a moment or two with me on the front steps. It was so nice to soak up some sun.

    Susy, I’m with Dexter 100%. Spring is here and I’m out there in the garden working and enjoying the weather. Well, most of the time. Today is a chilly day. It’s 40 degrees with wind gusts of 30 MPH and overcast. I can deal with that. Tomorrow 81 degrees predicted. Seriously? The bipolar weather continues into this year as well. I’m starting my tomatoes, green peppers, and eggplant today on the heat mat. Hopefully, in about six weeks they will be enjoying the outdoors on the way to harvest. That’s my plan and I’m sticking to it.

    Have a great day in the garden with Dexter.
