Recent Spring


A few days ago we had marvelous spring-like weather. Blue skies and warm temperatures called us to the outdoors to get to the projects that needed to have been done in February, like cutting down the grass island.


The same photo done in one of the tiny planet apps. I like this one best of all the ones I have taken.

And at sunset a quick burn of the days work.

What Do You See ?

I saw a wolf or dog or bat ?? But I definitely thought of those two openings as eyes.
The photos below are the two taken previous to this one.

Of course I was liking the 'portal' in this one....


...and here I was beginning to see the 'eyes' and liked the rays emitting from behind the clouds.

Porch Visitors...


...how cute is this ??
 During the snow and ice season we have just experienced I tossed out some 'ice salt' to keep a path clear for Mandy. I started to notice 'scratchings' on the wood and then a rabbit on the porch several mornings and next a squirrel. They keep coming back and all for the little bit of salt that has leached into the wood and tomorrow I am going to find a proper 'salt' for them. 


Mandy, being the good girl that she is, waiting for me to return from the barn with seed for the birds.

Coming Soon


 The winter has made us tired. We are ready to throw it out and fling our arms open wide to welcome the renewal of the earth. Promises that nature has made will be kept, soon.

My Welcome to Spring

... has been put on the front door...

and the back door.

I am forgiving Mother Nature
 for the nasty that has been delivered 
to just about everyone . 
The beautiful Nandina
bush last year on January 31st....

 the Nandina bush this morning. This is the month 
of Spring and I am hoping it will arrive at least as scheduled.
