With the first hints of spring (some sunny and slightly warmer days), we've been spending more time outside...playing for the kids and yard work for me. Although the previous owners didn't do much with the yard, thankfully, in the past someone had, and I've just had to re-dig flower beds that once existed. I don't feel like I've had to invest tons of time - but, oh, the rewards! It still lacks the cheeriness of flowers (soon, hopefully!), but at least it is starting to look cared for rather than neglected!
