|These purple beauties were the among the first flowers in my garden to|
lift their faces to the sun.
|Our son turned 20 years old, leaving behind the teenage years forever. It feels strange to|
no longer have a teenager in the house!
|A new foal born to our neighbor is standing with its mother against the glorious sunset backdrop.|
|You can see in the earlier picture that they were quite a distance away from us. However, the kind mother brought her little filly right|
up to the fence to meet us! What a delight that was!
|She was the cutest little thing, all legs, and not quite sure of herself. In this photo, she was only 4 days old.|
|Seeing this sweet baby girl almost made me want to have a horse, but I had to rein myself in because they don't|
stay babies long, lol!
|Glorious sunsets in the evening. I enjoy walking at sunset, as the land is still and quiet, and I love listening to the gentle rustle of the trees and sweet chirps of the birds and turkeys as they bed down for the night.|
|It felt great to hang clothes out on the line for the first time this season! My wool sweater has been folded|
and put away for now. Spring/summer weather is here to stay :)
|A day trip with a friend of mine along the river was enjoyed immensely. The sunshine was brilliant, with not a|
cloud in the sky, and the distant snow-capped mountains added the perfect touch to every view.
|A train cheered at us as it steamed along its own path down the river.|
|Great views from every bend in the road had us stopping and getting out of the car quite frequently.|
|We walked across this pedestrian bridge that crosses the river. The rush and force of the spring run-off water below|
us was incredible to see.
|An osprey had built a nest atop the bridge and kept a vigilant gaze upon us as we walked underneath.|
|My garden journal has been updated for the last year of gardening and is prepared and ready for this season of gardening.|
|I use a cheap journal notebook, embellish it, and keep track of all my efforts in the garden. It is helpful to look|
back and remember when I planted certain bushes and trees as well.
|I keep track of which seed companies I use, how well the seeds produced, and any other tidbits of information that|
might be helpful in years to come.
|Another of the early bloomers in my garden, these purple hyacinths were a fragrant gorgeous addition|
to the garden just waking up from its long winter naptime.
I hope you are all having a blessed and beautiful springtime... we are enjoying the flowers, the blooms, and the bright greens of spring... because we have already seen that summer's heat is hovering near at hand. We are enjoying the spring days as much as we possibly can :)
