A Perfect Spring Morning
Since I was a little on the whiny side last week, I thought I'd post today about how AWESOME our weather was this weekend. It was truly perfect spring weather...warm enough that you didn't need a jacket, cool enough that you didn't run for shade.
This morning as I walked around, coffee in hand, I was struck by the amazing beauty and bounty of our neighbors' Clematis. I honestly don't know which variety it is, it's evergreen and flowers for a few weeks early in the spring. It's one of those plants that's a bore for 11 months of the year, but for the 1 month is good, it's AMAZING. A bonus is that since the Oak treeks across the street aren't yet leafed out, the morning sun filters across them each morning, making a fascinating and transient spectacle.
Another bonus is the flowers are lightly scented, just enough so that if the breeze is just right, you get a whiff of heady perfume, light and airy, perfect for spring.
