jo-bi-one I feel your spring here :)
Beautiful views :)
smilin7 A beautiful bluebird greeted me early in the morning.
smilin7 raking, raking, raking
smilin7 raking to reveal a sea of blue myrtle/periwinkle flowers
smilin7 raking, raking, raking (a sea of leaves!)
smilin7 Ouch! We heard a big bang when this tree fell a few weeks ago.
smilin7 reclaiming (rediscovering) the undergrowth beneath the leaves, enjoying the beech leaves fluttering in the breeze
smilin7 Placing some of our driftwood collection in new locations... surprise!
smilin7 I quit (for today) at this point... much more to do, but much done!
smilin7 Moved another piece of driftwood near the mailbox as a support for our clematus vine.
smilin7 purple flowers on the clematus coming soon, and multiple flowers at the base of our mailbox will be blooming soon, too!
smilin7 hyacinths just beginning to show themselves (need to replant these and/or enrich the soil here)
smilin7 another view
smilin7 Note the maple 'blushing' in the background (our home is on a corner lot and our entrance viewed from many different angles by passersby)
smilin7 This view shows several of the random odd 'surprises' you find when you visit us and stroll up the driveway.
smilin7 Spring IS coming...
smilin7 I think these two pieces look like they are having a conversation...
smilin7 Seductively posed, with one giant 'eyeball' (I wonder what he/she's saying?)
smilin7 My raking revealed this (wood anemone?)
smilin7 a pleasant surprise (we have a few tucked around our yard/woods)
smilin7 buckeye (amazing how fast these unfurl on warm spring days)
smilin7 woods daffodils; they'll be popping soon (sweet fragrance!)
smilin7 blooming plate (indoors!)
smilin7 spirea and eucalyptus gracing our window
smilin7 first color on our young forsythia
smilin7 spring IS coming!
