Spring flings

This spring feels like a personal awakening as well as a seasonal one. After years of not feeling quite myself due to this and that, I feel like my petals are slowly unfurling along with the daffodils and tulips.

I've been enjoying more time in the garden, even the weeding.

I planted more spring bulbs for the first time in years and they've added a lovely bit of early color. 



The apple tree didn't bloom last spring, but t put on quite the show this year.

We've also been getting out an about. This weekend we saw Kedi, a lovely, touching documentary film about the street cats in Istanbul. It was better than expected and I had high hopes to begin with.



Then today, on national picnic day, we had a picnic in Inniswoods Metro Gardens and admired their spring blooms.

Earlier this spring there were more cat capers with a visit to Eat, Purr, Love, the first cat cafe in Ohio which opened right in our neighborhood. A very zen place for cat lovers.


All the cats a up for adoption and 120+ have been adopted since it opened last August.
 


How's your spring going?

  1. Your post, and the events you went to, twigged something - I hate budgets, but I realise when I have one, I'm better at spending on those things I value (ie things I've budgeted for!) and events like culture/concerts are one of those things, like your movies and the cat cafe.
