April Showers Us With What???
The air is fresh with Spring. ...And pollen! Once again the air is thick with a floating golden mist. I ache to open doors and windows to the warmer air and fresh clean smells of Spring, but everything in the house will be coated with pollen and we will all be sneezing and rubbing our eyes and uncomfortable with clogged sinuses. Oh well, I must be satisfied with early morning fresh air before the pollen surges. I am sorry to say that I missed the March mantel. I did start to decorate, but fell short when I discovered that I had no green paper to cut shamrocks from. Part of my mantel challenge is to change each month and decorate with what I have on hand, so a bean pot stuffed with gold sequined fabric, that was meant to be that Leprechaun's pot of gold, sat dismally lonesome until April. I got busy a few days ago with the mantel and made use of the profusion of azaleas that are filling the yard right now. Stuffed into a few saved wine bottles, and interspersed with a few cheerful yard ornaments, it seems to me that nature's creatures are rejoicing that Spring is finally here. Never mind that the weathermen are predicting snow-showers for tonight!
