It's Spring at the Oaks Plantation

     Well, once again, Spring has sprung. This is most definitely my favorite time of year. I've been in such a hustle and bustle lately,  but today I decided that I was going to enjoy this beautiful weather. There is nothing like Spring in Texas with the lush fields of wildflowers (i.e. bluebonnets, indian paintbrushes, etc), birds singing in the beautiful, copious oak trees while you sway gently back and forth in the warm breeze in a hammock or enjoying a picnic with a luscious and abundant spread on a soft blanket spread across "the perfect spot" in a grassy field after a long day of fishing.

    The hydrangeas are in full bloom here in Texas and we've got some "busy bees", as they buzz to and from the flowers. The birds are resounding their songs through the trees and splashing in the bird baths in the gardens. It seems as though everything has come out of sleep and sprung into full life. Spring is all about passing the lazy Saturdays out in the garden tending the blooms and gathering fresh rosemary for supper. It's about raising the windows to let the fresh air move about the room and consume the entire room until it smells of Spring. There is no other season quite like Spring.

      Be sure to keep following our blog, as we tell of all the Spring happenings here at the Oaks Plantation. We will also be posting some recipes and ideas, so be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for the next blog. Happy Spring from all of us at the Oaks Plantation and at Carolyn Westbrook Home!

See Y'all Soon,
