Spring is here, there's no doubt about it. Even if the weather and temperature are still trying to catch up with this reality, the sun tells the truth. While the trees are still bare, the rays of the setting sun (about 8pm right now) linger long into our evening, sending beams of the sun's light and warmth through the cabin's windows that face NW until about 8:40 or so. The good news for us is during the summer, when it is warm, the full canopy of the trees block most of those direct rays, so we get the light, but not the direct heat (well, to a certain degree). I share this with you because I don't think I ever noticed this before!
More spring evidence...my rhubarb has sprouted! I'm so excited...I thought I killed it last year, so I'm happy and relieved to see the sprouts. I love rhubarb...when I was young, we used to eat it fresh with a little bowl of sugar for dipping, oooh yum, I'm salivating just thinking about it!
And the maple leaves are opening; I do recall they were the first to sprout last year! I showed you the buds not too long ago, but look, sprouting leaves!
Also, in anticipation of enjoying spring and in celebration of our 1 year of log cabin living, I ordered a fire pit for our new deck (on sale and free shipping, woo hoo!) I put it together today, and now it has to be just a little less windy to get the first fire going...but I can't wait!
Are you doing anything special, in anticipation of spring?
