When the crocus flowers bloom I think that it is safe to say that spring has arrived! These are the first flowers that I have seen. They look so cheerful among the dead leaves.
It was such a lovely day that Philip and I were able to get out of the house and go for a walk. I am always amazed at how improved both of our temperaments are when we get a little fresh air. :-)
Our destination today was the Fitzpatrick's house and we were lucky enough to arrive while Simon was making cookies. Philip was so happy to help! I think that he also enjoyed the free access to the bowl of grapes. I think that he ate the entire bunch! At least it wasn't chocolate chips, though he had some of those too :-)
The best part yet is that without a nap and all the fresh air he went to bed easily at 8 and I am hopeful that he will stay asleep for the rest of the night!
