Spring - CCC #59

Is it finally Spring where you live?  I think we are finally past all the really cold weather and will be warming up.  Of course we still are having rain just about every weekend, so it's hard to enjoy the time off.  I did get some plants and shrubs in the ground today.  Nope, I didn't do it.  I have a great lawn guy who does the mowing and takes care of all that planting stuff.  I do miss digging in the dirt.

On to my Spring card.
