Spring In The Country

After a long, cold winter, topped off with a foot of snow in March, my yard has finally sprung to life. It always seems to happen overnight. It's as if I wake up one morning and realize that Spring has indeed arrived!

The warm evenings we've had over the past couple of weeks have lured me outside, camera in hand. I hope you enjoy the pictures I've taken of my little neck of the woods in springtime.


A storm brewing..


A rainbow...

An amazing sunrise...


A blazing sunset...


An eagle in flight...


A dogwood tree in the blinding sunlight...


Mountain Laurel along the driveway...


Why don't you come on over and sit a spell?

I really do love Dogwoods and they have come and gone here already. I'm already getting my pool ready for a pool party. Are you sure you live in North America?? I'm already wearing shorts and tube tops (yep....my kidkos LOVE that look, lol)

Awesome! Very pretty. Your new colors are very spiffy too - for some reason it loads (on dial up) faster than the previous one did.

Enjoy spring, because it only lasts one day, as you know. Then it's heat, humidity, and a thunderstorm every night. Oh, and bugs. Don't forget them.

Let me know when the pool is open!
