After a week of torrential rain, we finally have SUNSHINE in Obion County. Blue skies and 80 degrees mean:  bed sheets go out to dry on the clothesline today!

With the first day of spring less than a week away, here are a few of my favorite things about springtime:

  • Line-dried sheets
  • Daffodils
  • Spring peepers cheeping in the pond
  • Emerald fields of wheat
  • Babies! – calves, bunnies, chicks, kittens
  • The smell of fresh-turned earth
  • Phoebes nesting on the front porch
  • Meadowlark and mockingbird song
  • Wind whipping through open windows
  • Bare feet
  • Mud puddles
  • A lively creek
  • School on the front porch
  • Longer daylight
  • Honeysuckle perfume of the fresh-breath-of-spring
  • Coffee on the porch swing with a friend

What are some of your favorite things about spring?
