Spring Love is in the Air


I love Spring.  I love the flowers; the breeze and the sun poking thru the clouds.

 

I love the melody of birds and the awakening of the slumbering earth.

 

I love the damp ground and the fragrance in the air.

 

I love it all---

 

Except for the mildew.

 

And, my word, do I hate the fine green layer that grows with the winter and rain.  It covers everything outside our house.

 

It makes me twitchy.  Really.  Before the ground has defrosted, I start whining about it.

 

This isn’t even seen as a flaw to my hubby.  He knows me well. He tackles the green with me.

 

The other day I returned from the store and I heard a racket in the backyard.  My heart started pounding and my palms grew moist.

 

I opened the back door and saw this:

 

 

And nothing says I love you like the words etched in mildew with a pressure washer.

 

Oh, stop my beating heart.
