I think Spring is one of my favorite seasons, other than Autumn. I love Autumn for the beautiful, bright fall colors. I love Spring for the same reason, though I mostly love Spring for the baby animals. I also have a green thumb and enjoy seeing the seeds and bulbs that I have planted grow into such beautiful, colorful flowers. This year, I didn’t get the chance to plant anything until mid April due to the harsh winter (snow, sleet, frost) we were having. Then, if that wasn’t bad enough, it wouldn’t stop raining long enough for me to pull weeds out of the garden or plant anything. But, the perennials that I do have in the garden, have already sprouted, budded, and bloomed.
Spring doesn’t just bring out the vivid color green, or bright colors of pink, purple, yellow, and blue all around, it also brings babies…baby animals that is. The stables where my daughter rides has a new member added to their family, an adorable little donkey named Easter; he was born on Easter Sunday. My daughter and I got the opportunity to meet him. He’s full of energy and seems eager to greet everyone. My daughter was able to pet him for a few minutes, then thought she would chase after him, then he would chase after her. I was more afraid Momma donkey wouldn’t like that very much, but the two kids were enjoying themselves, no matter how nervous their momma’s were. After five minutes of meet and greet, we let momma and Easter have their peace and quiet.
