My work on the split rail fence this morning was happily interrupted by my son Devon getting up early. He’s visiting from Ottawa where he moved last fall and it’s been literally years since I’ve seen him up before 7am.
It was really nice to chat with him and get caught up. His birthday is on Sunday and he’ll be 21…how does that happen? One minute they’re your baby and the next they’re an adult. Time certainly does fly.
Another pleasant surprise came by seeing that our backyard has erupted in forget-me-nots, the beautiful little blue-purple flowers. The funny thing is, I have no idea where they came from. They weren’t there last year and we didn’t plant them. Mother Nature truly is amazing!
