The relentless rain and strange weather had us inside more than usual through the winter and Spring has been flirting with us, and then flitting away - only to return again... so like her.

Oh Spring... How I love you. I have taken you for granted with the usually mild year-long weather we are usually blessed with here. Today, the windows are thrown open, the curtains gently billow - an open invitation. Persephone, please do come in.
The urge to get the interior of Museville in high gear is strong - and the call for outdoor dinners under the stars, alight with the soft glow of candles is pulling at my heart.
Spring couldn't get here soon enough, and now Summer is already in the wings...
