I have arrived to beautiful weather, glorious sunshine & warmth. I have thrown open all of the windows to let in the fresh air, clearing out the musty smell of winter. I have been sweeping away spiders & their many cobwebs. But the real cleaning will have to begin tomorrow. Today has been a bit of a lost day. Tired from my travels I have spent most of my time greeting old friends & neighbors. Happy just to be here & to see my rose in bloom.
