Aching from Raking

Spring is not only in the air - it is in the ground! My arms may be aching from raking...but it was worth it to find this wee, solitary gem!

Yes...there actually are spots where you have to rake around snow piles - but hey! That's what living in the Midwest is all about. You never know what treasures you may find!

Here's to the hidden treasures of spring, a glass of wine for my achy-rakey arms, and using up more of my bulk roll of dry wall mesh!
