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.
