I forget sometimes, just how much I love warm Spring nights. Tonight I was sitting on the porch, reading a book, watching Hanna swim in her new pool and took a minute to look around, listen around, and appreciate.
dog trotting across the yard
Big bumblebee buzzing as he bumbles around
Big green potato plants in the potato pool
Birds chirping all around
Hummingbirds whirring around from feeder to feeder
Hollyhocks getting big as platters
Barn swallows chewing me out for sitting right under their nests
Wheat fields all around, getting taller and more amber colored
Warm gentle breezes, a nice contrast to the typical 50 mph winds
Queen Anne’s Lace blooming tall and proud, covering up the junk by the garage
My new spoon windchimes chiming quietly and beautifully
Sparrows nibbling at the bird feeder
Butterflies flitting from flower to flower
The warm orange sun as it sets
Big laughs and splashes from the pool (did I mention that one already?)
Big smiles, and wet hugs when someone gets out of the pool
Here’s what it sounds like at our house…
Don’t worry ~ the “help me” is just a game she’s playing. She’s talking to the bird on the wire above her head. The big jar of dirt on the table is our “Ant Farm”.
What do you love most about these warm spring nights?
