Happy Spring!!
(Click on photos to enlarge)

Spring has finally arrived in the north central US!  Our first dandelions appeared yesterday AM…grumble, grumble.  But they have their beauty too, we just don’t all appreciate it.  We made a trip to the greenhouse for a couple hanging baskets for Mother’s Day so there are lots of opportunities to experiment with my new camera. 

The birds have been singing and gathering goodies for their nests, the frogs are happy and we've had some deer visiting our back yard.  They haven't lost their winter coats yet so they're looking kind of shaggy.  What they say about the grass being greener over the septic tank is really true, just ask the deer.  If you’ll look closely at the picture of the deer, you’ll see ‘buds’ on their heads where their horns are forming.

The trees are so close to leafing out and the DH has been working in the garden.  But all this gloriousness doesn’t come without a downside, the dreaded allergies are back too….grumble, grumble again.  But we will survive; we’ve been waiting a long time for this.

Enjoy the pictures. 




  1. And the reason those deer don't eat all your lovely plants?

  2. The only flower that the deer like around here are pansies, so no pansies. They leave the rest alone. We have wire frames over our strawberries and cucumbers but they leave the rest of the garden alone. We've trained them well, ha.

    1. You don't realize how lucky you are. My deer prefer everything, but most especially poisonous plants. They have an eating disorder methinks.
