Reasons to be Cheerful

What could be making me so cheerful?

Could it be because there are spring flowers growing in the garden,
even though they look a little lost amongst the brown lawn?

Or because there are more wild flowers peeking through the long grass each morning that we step outside?

Perhaps because at long last we can take our daily walks with the hounds through the forest
now that the snow has gone.

Or maybe it's because the garden is demanding attention.

Or the birds are singing,

and our summer visitors have arrived.

Or maybe it's because I get to play with our new camera!

I can tell you're excited about your new camera. I noticed that you were posting pictures so I figured you either fixed the old one or got a new one. Have fun and post those pictures!!

All GREAT reasons to be cheerful! And how lovely to see Spring showing its face in your garden.

So thrilled for you that you have a camera again Lynne! I am no photographer but I would be so sad to be without mine so I have felt for you since you broke yours.
