1. Leaving the chilly house to do some gardening in the warm spring sun. I am feeling well enough to pull some weeds from the lawn while my husband does the much more strenous job of clearing the would-be vegetable bed.
2. One of our new strawberry plants has half a dozen tiny white flowers.
3. The kids' delight as they find a swarm of slaters under a pot that I move. They 'rescue' the little bugs and put them in a bucket to watch, then later release them to a pile of dead leaves.
