Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons by far. I mean, there are things about all of the seasons that I love, but there’s just something especially good about Spring and Fall. Right now, of course, I think Spring is by far my favorite, but talk to me in October, and I’ll likely throw Spring over for the crisp, sunny days of Fall and the upcoming holidays.

For now, I’m in heaven. I had a great birthday, I’m getting lots done, and the cherry trees are blooming. They’ve just reached that phase where they are going to send showers of petals through the air like a fairytale. I love it.

I took a whole bunch of pictures a few days ago, and I wanted to have somewhere on here to keep them, so I decided to start setting up a little gardening area where I can keep all my plant information and photos, seasonal bloom information, tools and how to’s, stuff like that. I’m setting up a little section for each of my favorite hobbies so that I can have my own personal reference of the information I use most often. (I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had to go back to the blog to re-print a favorite recipe!).

So — there’s not much there yet, just the one post with the five million photos of the cherry tree out front, and one about picket fences that’s mostly photos of my old house. But I hope you’ll at least cruise around and check it out. Slowly but surely I’ll add more.

Do you love Spring?
