We finally had a nice couple of days with temperatures in the fifties and even up to 60. Even the bees were busy taking advantage of the spring weather. 

 It felt so good to be out in my yard even if it was just cleaning things up and preparing our raised beds for warm weather to come.  That’s the only good thing about our long winters….spring is all the sweeter when it finally arrives.

~”And as, when all the summer trees are seen So bright and green, The Holly leaves a sober hue display Less bright than they, But when the bare and wintry woods we see, What then so cheerful as the Holly-tree?”
~Robert Southey


 Since it is another November day that’s cold outside and not fit out there for flowers, to be sure, I needed to break out the pictures.  

Thank goodness for photographs and memories, they keep me in flowers until springtime
