Spring Has Finally Sprung

Dare I say it, but I think spring is finally here.  Yesterday we had a whopping high of 23 C and today it is supposed to get to 25 C.   These are above normal temperatures for this time of year and we are enjoying it to the fullest.  Dan and I love gardening and we were outside all day yesterday and will be today too, just cleaning up the leaves, cutting back perennials, planting the garden, and just tinkering in general, trying to get rid of the last signs of winter.  We have such a short growing season here that the sooner we can get out and start planting, the happier we are.

After working in the yard all morning yesterday we were relaxing in the mid-afternoon sun, having a cerveza on the deck, and dreaming of laying back on our hammock in Panama, settling down for a siesta.  We were in deep conversation and getting excited about all the different plants, fruit trees, flowers, etc that we will be able to grow… and just to have a year round growing season!  …. hard to imagine right now but we know we will get there.

Well, back to reality….. the day is slowly slipping away ….. time to “get up and get at it”.
