Things I like about spring



here are a few things I like about spring

in the country!

I love to see the dogwoods

I love to hunt for mushrooms and eat them too! :)

and I get to put our porch swing up!

If that old porch swing could talk, what tales it could tell!

There were the days, of Granpaw courting Grandmaw!

Or the time Paw kissed Maw, for the first time, and hope no one saw! Then you came along and had to be swung on it, before you would fall asleep!

And there were a many a night that you sit on grandpaw's lap, waitting for the firesflys, to come out !

And those summer days snapping peas with grandmaw, and listening to her talk, about the good old days!

Now here you sit all grown up, thinking to yourself,that life seen so simple back then just a swinging on,

That OLD PORCH SWING!

We never had a porch swing. I always wanted one. They look so cool and homely like. The memories you shared sound so wonderful.
Have a great day.

Hi Jel! Have you heard this poem, my Mum taught it to me when I was little:
Spring has sprung, the grass has ris
I wonder where the flowers is?
Spring has sprung, the birds are on the wing,
Oh, isn't that absurd - I thought the wing was on the bird!
