Beautiful days ahead

There are so many signs of spring and it is going to happen, it is the one thing we can count on. Yesterday I got my bike out for the first time this year and I had a lovely ride through my neighborhood.

I rode past houses where parents were helping little ones learn to ride bikes. I saw people walking and working in their yards. It was quiet and peaceful too.

The pussy willows are blooming.

I didn’t expect the bees to be out, but they are and are were busy gathering pollen.

My rhubarb is starting to come up. When it doesn’ I’ll make a pie using my grandmother’s pie crust recipe.

The Mississippi River is flooding but it isn’t nearly as high as it was last year and it won’t be as bad as predicted.

We have to stay at home and keep our distance from others but we don’t have to miss spring.
