|This is my view out my studio window|
The dandelions and thistle are showing up. Every time I walk up to my front door there are a couple of things that need to be pulled up. It's kind of like looking at a quilt hanging on the wall in a gallery, and there is a large piece of thread hanging on it. Do you pull it off?

Today, I pulled out my little garden stool, gloves, little diggers and worked on my spring garden clean-up. And yes, this is really what I want to do on my day! It's warm outside, the sun is shining and the birds have all arrived. The perfect day. I had a thermos glass full of iced tea so I have something to drink while I'm taking a break.

Kmart advertised some yard art on sale. There were flamingos and cranes on special. So after having lunch out, we stopped and purchased one crane which is now standing on the edge of the garden. I still have many days of work, but this was a wonderful day of discovery. I found primroses, yellow wild violets, little white hepatica flowers, white trillium are beautiful. What a spring we are having. The yard is full of daffodils and narcissus. Such inspiration for future quilts. The only thing I missed today was my two sons.

Life is good.
