Sunday, May 10, 2009


Spring is in full swing at Hardy House. Today is Sunday, May 10, 2009 and it is Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there.

It is beautiful here this morning. The morning sun is hiding at the moment but a short time ago it was out and every tree seemed to reverberate light. I love the mornings here and look eagerly to the day our front porch is once again habitable for morning coffee. The porch faces east and the sunrise.

The daffodils are past and the tulips have seen their prime. The asparagus is producing and the pear and apple trees are in full bloom. The lilacs have begun to blossom. The sorghum and English walnut trees have begun their leaf growth while the maples are heavy with young leaves. The grass is ready for a second cutting and the field has been plowed twice in getting it ready for a corn planting.

I love Spring. Sometimes I think this is New York State at its finest. But then I say that in the Summer and Fall, too.
