"And the livin is easy"

Says who?

I am so happy to see winter almost gone

But then, I look at the garden

Ouch!  such a mess, so

then I must order the seeds,

dig up the dead flower beds,

rake up the leaves I didn't get to do

in the fall.

Spring begins March 20

lovely spring

But then, I remember I have to

plant the seeds

plant the flowers


Maybe winter isn't so bad, after all.
