Spring’s Fling

May 3, 2012

Spring has been an elusive lover this year, surprising us early by bringing some of her cousin’s (Summer) heat and parading around, and rather scantily clad, I might add. Hey there Spring – put your sweater back on! I won’t lie – we all enjoyed the show and shrugging off all reasonable responsibility we put on our shorts and t-shirts and fired up our BBQ’s, unabashedly using up the remnants of  year’s propane.

Then came the rain, a few snowflakes and then one day there was an even a brief event when tiny hail-spit balls  were being shot down from the sky above . Hmmm.. that’ll learn us! So now, here we are, waiting patiently for our girl Spring. Obviously  Mother nature obviously talked some sense into her seasonally wild child and Spring is now arriving a little more buttoned-down…as we would expect. In fact, I’ve felt appropriately damp over the last couple of weeks and have pulled out my spring jacket and scarf for those early morning shivers. I know that summer has booked her trip and is well on the way..and being a gal who doesn’t like heat and humidity – I am steadying myself for what’s to come. A/C is standing by and yes, I know all about the freon etc. –  but living with a wild, menopausal beast of a woman who seems to only suffer from Hot Flashes in summertime; two months proves too difficult – and scary – for my family!

I am poised to plant my countless annuals and look forward to sitting back, when it’s all done , in my backyard which has been affectionately christened (more times that I can count!) Narnia. Close the door to the wardrobe and bring out the park bench….I’m ready for you now, Spring!
