Spring! Spring! Spring!


Oh happy, happy, happy! Happpeeee. Look, look, you can see the clematis beginning to climb over the pergola. Look at that adorable dwarf Japanese maple next to the happy rock. Oh me, look at the little pink budlets on the tree. And notice how there's no grass. That's happy too. No grass to mow. Over to the bottom left is the pool, which isn't pictured because it's filling as I type and is a little bit ugly right now. But picture, if you will, a full blue pool, a perfectly proportioned floaty with drink holder occupied by appropriate umbrella-ed-y beverage and no pressing emails or voicemessages from cold hearted coworkers or bosses [note I don't say picture a pale, infertile blond 38 year old with less than toned musculature who could easily drop 15 pounds]. Damn, I love me some Spring!

Ah, beautiful.

I'll be hiding my pale self under the pergola, reading and laughing at my own jokes, whilst you gals frolic poolside.

We just totally took over your yard, Melanie.

Isn't it great! It kills me to work when it's nice out like this.
