“The one good thing about this world…there are always sure to be more springs.” -L.M. Montgomery
After a cold winter, it is lovely to see everything slowly coming back to life as the weather becomes warmer. I don’t mind the cold so much because I have a fluffy winter coat, but there is nothing quite like springtime.
I have a comfortable window seat that I use to make my observations of the outdoors. I find it very interesting to watch what goes on outside. This spot near the window just might be the best spot in the house.
This particular day was so nice. I looked up at the trees with their white blossoms and watched with amazement as the petals blew by in the wind. A flurry of white dots, it looked as if it were snowing outside.
Such a perfect day. I enjoyed feeling the warmth of the sun as its afternoon rays beamed down from the sky and onto my fur. There is nothing like basking in the sun on a spring day.
Here is a small glimpse of what I saw.
I was told this tree is a fruitless pear tree.
I will share a secret with you, trees are magical beings.
As I sat in the window, my siblings joined me. While sometimes we have sparred over territory (or treats), this day we all sat together happily and watched the world from our lookout. My sister Keiko was mesmerized by the petals blowing in wind. Benji, who is normally a hyper Bengal, seemed to be meditating while staring at the sky. We must have stayed there for hours, although it seemed like minutes. As we all shared the spirit of springtime happiness, I decided to get down from my perch so my sister could have my spot. She wanted to have a better view of the sunset.
They stayed there as the sun slowly lowered in the sky.
I am so happy springtime is here; more lazy days in the sun, more flowers, more happiness. Until next time…
With Love, Friend
