The Joys of Spring - Or Maybe Not

Oh the joys of spring! Warmer temps, wild flowers blooming, the garden starting, trees leafing, birds singing. Then for my part of the world there is the "maybe not". All those wonderful things happen but we have to deal with gale force winds that blow your garden plants right out of the ground and the water in the bird bath goes flying as well. The bird house so carefully placed on a branch, forget about it. I found that blown into the pasture. Want to guess how long my bird feeder lasted before it went sailing. Ah the joys of spring in Central West Texas, or maybe not.
