6. I was also out all day Sunday, and I am battered and bruised.

I look like I was in a fight with a closet full of cats. I did not get planters out yet, because I am sure it is still way too early (even if it didn't FEEL like it). But I did get all the tree branches that fell all winter cleaned up, and did a lot of cleaning out the beds---cutting down all the dead flower heads.

What was incredible to me is that the rose bushes had not even lost all the leaves over this winter. The butterfly bush has leaves full out, and I don't know if they were there all winter and didn't get killed or if they have come out with all the nice weather. Crocuses are blooming all over and buds on the daffodils. And the bees were happy to see those crocuses because they were out too!

It felt so good to get things cleaned up and look at all the life.
