That’s “springy” as in bouncing around, not the change of season sort, although the thought of warmer, sunnier weather is most welcome as we push our way through a gloomy February.
No, springy is how I’ve been lately — bouncing around between the new apartment and the current one as we prepare to move this coming weekend. Before that, however, there is much work to be done to make the new apartment ready. The former tenant left behind unimaginable filth and damage, and the landlord did do some work, but when he felt his contribution was sufficient, the rest was left in our laps, so to speak. And to be honest, I don’t have a whole lot of “bounce” left in me!
So, if my posts have been sporadic lately, that’s my story. Things should settle down in the next week or so. To my delight, my new ground level deck is skirted by a large forsythia on one side, and a straggly (but very pretty) rhododendron on another. I already have plans to incorporate it into a larger bed. March is a perfect month for such planning. Once we’ve unpacked and settled in, I’ll take some photos. The deck is shaded from the hottest of the afternoon sun by several huge pine trees — I’ve already stood and listened to the wind sigh through its beautiful boughs. There’s nothing like a change of view to lift the spirits. :)
Until then, I’ll keep posting some springy photos…and keep you posted.
