 Some of you know we live in the forest.  While there are not leaves yet on the trees, we are seeing buds on some of them.  And as you can see here the lovely crocus are gracing us with their beauty.
 Even the bees are starting to come out.
 I love this time of year when everything is new after such long, cold winters.  Though there are not buds yet, the tulips are coming on fast this week due to warmer temperatures. 
And finally to my great pleasure, this week I've been able to hang clothes on the line outside.  Something quite satisfying about that.  Everyone here does this, though I know it is a lost practice in America.   May your spring be blessed wherever you are.

Facebook has actually changed some things about our lives.  As an American in Ukraine it gives me contact with people back home.  That means so much since after 20+ years with friends coming and going we can sometimes feel a bit isolated.  One of the fun things it has are these different programs.  Here's one that shows the states I've been in over a lifetime.  Some of this has been as a missionary traveling to visit our churches.  Just interesting.
