There are really only two yellow flowers I like seeing in spring, and I’m not talking about daffodils: I want tomatoes and cucumbers. As of today, neither one have their little root-y feet dug into my yard garden. Soon, perhaps even this weekend I’ll have purchased and planted some [expensive] plants at the nursery. I missed the window entirely for seeds or seedlings.
Nevertheless, my time was spent outdoors enjoying the finicky weather that is Houston in the spring. We get but two perfect windows of good weather — one in spring, one in the fall — followed by a year ’round hell of heat and humidity.
Life’s best when these little pleasures are enjoyed in the moment.
We camped. We birded. We canoed. We beach-went. We generally spent every waking moment — and equal amounts of sleeping time — outside. Sometimes it’s just good to mellow out for a couple of days!
Unlike the pink hues of late winter, our yard in early spring explodes in brilliant shades of yellows.
Peek-a-Boo, April (our redheaded squirrel)!
