signs of spring.....

it was a long time coming...it was a very long, cold and miserable winter this year.
everything that blooms is two to three weeks later than it is supposed to be.  
but...
around here, there are definite signs of spring....
i took a few pictures this morning around my yard....
the sun is shining,
there is dew on the grass.....
and the tulips are blooming at last.

yesterday was beautiful to, albeit a little humid, but warm and sunny enough to have 
a picnic with our neighbor's family under their nice big and shady tree..
complete with a quilt spread on the ground and my newly painted picnic basket....
did i mention that my lovely neighbor angie has 6 kids?  three are adopted and three are their born children...five boys and one girl...
i watch tessa while shannon is in school but she is home by lunch time so they joined us too!!
and the boys entertained us with their spectacular feats of 
swing jumping....
i think that's what you call it....or maybe it's called 
"catapult yourself from the swing seat and land on your face" jumping.
thankfully, no accidents. this time.
 the tree branches are now flowering
 the rhubarb that we planted last year is growing like crazy....
in fact, i made some rhubarb blueberry crisp already.  mmmm-mmm
happy, ever so happy, to have warm weather again.
now if we can only get past this weekend and early next week where the weathermen have predicted highs in the mid 50's.
 ....again.
sigh!!!!!
