Oh Spring Break.. I love thee.

My boys are home this week on Spring Break. Ahh. Just what this momma needed! No more morning drama, no more having to stop and think who is going where after school and when they will need to be picked up.  For the first time in 9 years, my daycare load LIGHTENED during this break, and today finds me with *2* children.   It's strange, and nice, all at the same time!

We've been enjoying temperatures in the 80's. I LOVE it, but fear this year will be another like last year.  Took a little walk around my flower beds, and was THRILLED to see most of my plants starting to leaf out. I did lose a few plants in the bed I added last year, but its not nearly as many as I feared.  I'm seeing life in things I was certain were dead and would need to be replaced. 

The Naked Lady's have shot up!

I'm proud!! This is a poppy I translated from my flower bed last year! It's THE ONLY poppy I've managed to transplant successfully in the 10 years we've lived here!!

The Blanket Flower I was convinced was killed by the Summer 2011 has returned after all!

And the Purple Coneflowers have started peeking through!

This weather has the bunnies feeling very "frisky", and after only have *1* litter  in 8 months, every available doe in our barn was bred, and are due next week. I'm pretty sure not ALL of them took, but judging from some of the bellies on some these girls, our baby drought is about to end.

Hope everyone gets a chance to get out and enjoy this weather!! Sounds like our area is in for some thunder storms next week! Would love the rain, just not any activity!
