Spring Time

There is something about Spring that takes my breath away. Many things actually!
New life growing up through hard, dry dirt never ceases to astonish me. I am always in awe when I see little tulips breaking through the earth and then blooming! I love it! It reminds me of life, how through the hard times (winter to the flowers) we are strengthened for another season. Praise God!
The sounds once again of the birds chirping is one more benefit of Spring. They are beautiful and my girls love watching them. Funny thing, they sing a lot louder when the bird feeder is empty! They fit in well around our house, ha ha.

This year Spring has brought new joy to our family, my children have discovered a love for....digging for worms! That one took me by surprise. I have a feeling this new hobby was inspired by the book Diary Of A Worm.
We have began our garden with some bleeding hearts that we got from the folks' garden! It was an experience, I  have never transplanted flowers before and I was sure that I had killed them - not even close, they are flourishing here. This is exciting, as it was one of Emily's favorite flowers from her Grandma Nette's yard. We were also give some rhubarb and chives to transplant, and are hopeful that they will do as well.
It has been so warm here that I am tempted to plant the tomatoes and peppers that we have growing indoors outside, but I am sure that as soon as we do it will freeze. Everyone who has lived in this part of Montana for long says that we should wait until after Memorial Day, so that is likely what we will do...
The girls favorite part of Spring so far has been, by far, watching caterpillars grow and enter their cocoons and soon after turn into butterflies! This was so exciting that we had to take Olivia to both girls schools to see the stages. Life is so precious!
These are some of my favorite parts of Spring, what are yours?
