Today was a beautiful spring day, mostly sunny (at least by afternoon) and in the mid-sixties. And on our five-acre property, many signs of spring have emerged, sparking the hope that this past cold, wet winter might be over at least.
So I thought I’d do something different on my blog. I thought I’d share some of the pretty spring things we’ve been seeing. The first two are more like tasty spring things. And the first photo reminds me that as soon as I finish this post, I need to run out and pick some asparagus for supper.
When I saw what you see in the next photo, I thought, “I shall know soon if I have mice in the garden.” How? Because that strawberry, at least half-ripe (and the first one of the season) will disappear or get nibbled on within the next couple of days if I do.
The next is some kind of small purple wildflower. The photo’s not as good as it could be because the wind was blowing.
Overnight, our rosebushes have bloomed. There’s another bush on the other side, and it’s heavenly to walk between them! They are heirlooms, so the roses give off a lovely fragrance.
Here is a single rose.
Some sort of small, white wildflower that the butterflies and hummingbird moths love.
Case in point.
Yellow wildflowers mixed in with a few of the purple ones like the one I shared above.
What kind of beauty are seeing right now, where you live?
