Something to hang on to

So, it has been a frustrating spring. It has either rained or blown full gale force winds practically every day. My peas have been blown down, then pummeled by rain into the muddy bed. The potato leaves are brown and battered on the edges. The birds even plucked half the blueberries, even though they are still tiny and hard and green. But am I whining? Well, yes, apparently I am.

But, these flowers are in bloom in my front yard, and I ate strawberry shortcake for dinner. I'll hang on to these bits of spring and hope that soon we will see sunshine and will even be able to push open the north east facing back door!
