Unearthing Spring (and a bit of past summer)

Happy Ostara/First Day of Spring, everyone!

Yesterday, as the kids were running around outside, I raked a bunch of leaves that had accumulated around the fence. It felt so good to be able to do some physical work out in the gorgeous weather (even if it was pretty cloudy). Amidst the wet, rotting leaves and mud, I discovered...

I don't remember what these flowers are called, or even what they look like, so we'll just have to wait patiently as they grow. But, it was such a welcomed sight, that Spring is indeed here.

I also found this buried...

Can you see it? That shoe went missing the begining of last summer. We searched all over the house and van to no avail. Who knew it was hidden out in the backyard? Fortunately, it was just a Croc, so after a quick rinse in the sink and it's good as new again. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed first day of Spring, filled with lots of love, light, and a few hidden treasuries!
