plants + sea-glass spring quiet afternoon blue eyes hallway clean-up dried daffodils not ready for bed
Now that May is just about here I am feeling a little behind with everything. We had so many hot days earlier in the month and such a mild winter that I have no excuse... but even so the spring has snuck up on me and I'm not quite prepared. I'm behind with the garden, with the class I'm teaching, with making plans for camping trips with friends and sending gifts to several loved ones. I'm trying not to get overwhelmed; to make lists and do as much as I can each day and just see what unfolds.
This is a wonderful season in new england and it's a joy to watch Little Smith discover the leaves on the trees and the flowers in bloom. He's so aware of his environment these days and after a rough start with and a few tortured flowers, he is finally learning to be gentle and touch with 'one finger'. I have lots of plans for a busy week but we'll also be trying to take some time to touch the flowers!
