Sunshine, Swings, and Spring!

This is my absolute favorite time of the year! The weather is absolutely beautiful! The trees are all in bloom, the flowers are brilliant, and the smell of orange blossoms is carried on the breeze! I think this is what Heaven will be like. I'm sure it will smell like orange blossoms! Ü

A dear friend of mine gave us a very nice swing set. My husband and a friend moved this massive behemoth into our backyard and the kids are absolutely loving it! I even went out and did a little swinging myself! Life is grand when you have a swing and the smell of orange blossoms in the air.

I've discovered that I'm not the only one that loves the smell of the blossoms. This last week we had a massive swarm of bees move into one of our trees. No bee keepers wanted them, (they were africanized) and the bee removal specialists wants hundreds of dollars to dispose of the swarm. Thankfully, a wonderful neighbor knew how to dispatch them! Now our yard is safe again for man and beast!

Scary, bees! I like this time of year, too... down there. Here, it's nice but too windy! :)
