We got an early start this morning to Michigan.
It was cool and rainy.
Windshield wipers were on all the way.
Too warm for a winter's coat but cool enough for a jacket.
The trip home, a couple of hours later,
was in fog.
The rain had stopped.
By the time we got home it was sunny and a lot warmer.
I ventured out in the yard the other day and
snapped a few pics of what was left of our last snow.
It was another day of sunshine, but cold.
I love how the sunshine showed up in this photo,
filtered by the pines on the property line
between us and the next door neighbors.
I went out in the yard in search of green and this is what I found.
At the base of one of our trees was this bright clump of moss.
I could imagine tiny elves and sprites
resting their heads on this,
or frolicking in this little patch of green moss.
I am so tired of winter and can't wait till spring.
Can you see them, those little green narci daffys?
I have 3 spots close to each other that need to be thinned.
Maybe this fall I will find some time to do that job.
My hyacinths are anxious to be up,
oh how divine they will look and smell.
They are one of my favorite flowers.
But my very favorite flower is, yes, you guessed it,
my lovely tiny little Forget-Me-Not.
They come back up year after year.
I do believe they reseed themselves.
Snow lingering in the shade of the deck steps.
Soon to be gone with the arrival of spring.
This has been a mild winter, I can't complain.
And so I leave you for now.
Hope the rest of your week is sunny and warm.
