Really. There is. It's not make believe like Santa Claus.
We had to drive over five hundred miles in pouring rain to find it. But, I think we would have driven twice that far just to feel some warmth and see green growth and pretty flowers.
After a March, no, after a winter, we would rather soon forget, a trip south to visit relatives was just what was needed.
There was sunshine and flowering trees. The tulips and daffodils were blooming.
Time spent on the porch chatting was just enough to suffer the first sunburn of the season.
And it was good.
