It's been fun to walk around the property to see what is springing to life now.
Forget me not.
So, so pretty.
and after the rain... purple Iris
The lilacs are about to bloom
and all our trees have leaves now.
The perennials are up and ready to show their colours.
I have added a new bird-house (a beautiful Mother's Day gift from my daughter) in hopes of welcoming a little family here.
But, so far, our bird-house checker-upper has no tenants to report.
But she sure does love her job. :)
The rain held off for two of my favorite ladies to visit the mouse-house.
Donna & Deborah, both well-known artists in the area, drove out to have a walk-about and catch up over a hot cup of tea and cake.
Donna, on the far right, was one of my first cat-sitting clients where I used to live and has become a good friend over the years.
Do you remember photos of Otis, Rosie & Lola?
Sadly, we lost Rosie & Otis over the years and now Miss Lola is the queen of her home.
My visitors toured the funny little greenhouse
and Simon followed us everywhere.
He was such a little weirdo today; popping up from behind rocks to entertain his fans.
While we sat at the old pump he had a snack and listened to us chat.
He was showing off his 'pack 'em in' skills.
Where does he put it all?
Then he ran in and out of his house to show the ladies where he spends his leisure time.
Hope you are enjoying spring weather where you are; whether rain or shine.
Every day brings more surprises.
