Lots of Rain for the Beginning of Spring ...

Pin It


... and this little guy has taken shelter beneath a just-bloomed iris.


Welcome to Spring!




PS:  I'm posting a photo a day (on Facebook) for the next 7 (now 6) days, taking part in nature photography challenge.  You can check it out here on my Facebook page.

Lilacs and Swallows

Pin It

The swallows arrived around March 15th this year and immediately began checking out last year's nests under the eaves of the house.  As usual, I don't have a photo. Someday I'll try to video their flitting flight but am not holding my breath; they're just too quick.

Then this morning, a lilac that I pruned severely last fall burst into bloom.

Days are longer, temperatures warmer.  And even if we are still having rain, it's a welcome change.
