The pollen is trying to kill me. I love spring, and have been spending time outside and working in the garden, and I get so distracted by the chartreuse and lime and copper of the budding trees and the pinks and whites and yellows of the dogwoods and the magnolias and cherries that I fear I'll have a car accident on my way in to work. It's just so beautiful. But it's also coating my faulty lungs and making me lethargic.

|Daffodils in bloom
|Backlit daffodils in one of my hill gardens that's coming alive with all my future flowers
|My hard work vine slaying, trying to free the shrubberies from strangulation. Also that white bottle is groundhog repellent, hungry jerk decapitated a bunch of my bleeding hearts.
Emmy is working out! She is freaking adorable, and she and Lucky are buddies. Not snuggling together (yet), but playing and chasing and sitting within a foot of each other. We are definitely adopting her for good and we are so excited that she and Lucky are having fun together and it's working out as we'd hoped!
|Pretty girl with the chameleon tail
|Pensive, favorite spot (different day)
|They both had to be in the window while I brushed my teeth!
|Awwwww, as close as they've ever been on the bed
|I am the best cat bed apparently (must be the fuzzy blanket)
Last, we redid the deck in late March and it is my favorite space. We set up a reading/stargazing spot, and we'll have a dining set by May (forgot we needed furniture, whoops), and we are so looking forward to when we can have people over safely. It's a gorgeous spot and I have grand plans for planters that are also benches and trailing flowers. Summer, I will be ready for you!
|Lucky is a fan and he's old enough that I can catch him if he tries to flee into the wilderness (but he just wants to soak up the sun)
