The Sounds of Summer, Already!

The woods ring with the sounds of summer. Birds chirping as they fly from branch to branch. A dog barking in the distance, eager to get outside. The hum of a mower as a non-resident, down for the weekend, cuts his lawn. It may rain later but the sunshine is out for the time being, as are the people. A couple just rode by on a two-seater bike, not something one sees every day on our dirt road, and waved at me, down on my hands and knees in the garden. There is so much to do here in the spring, but just look at how beautiful the flowerbeds look already!
