… means see you soon!
Good Day Everyone!
I can’t belive how quickly this week has flown by. The days have been sunny and blue… warm would be a bit of a lie but tolerable will do! I of course have a few pictures to share (when don’t I?)
I have been doing my best to finishe up some last minute projects, get ready for my mom’s visit, and enjoy the lengthening days.
The little grape hycinth that has been the subject of a few other pictures has survived the snow and frosts and is thriveing with a bed full of new companions.
I do believe that spring has taken a true foothold here for even when it’s fridgedly cold there is no longer a bone chilling quality to it…
… and there is a feeling of warmth underlying every new freeze.
The frost has done a bit of damage to the early blooms but it hasn’t stopped the tide of spring!
I have a giant tree in my front yard that has red leaves in the summer… it has just begun to bloom…
Charming isn’t it?
It has also become a meeting place for birds of all shapes and colors…
… and I have the privalage of being able to see them from my window.
Right under that tree is a birdbath…
… and it is also becoming quite popular!
If I’m not careful I’m going to turn into a bird watcher!
The blackberry brambels in my back field have begun to return to life as well!
I’m a desert girl through and through and am used to skies that go white in the summer… So the skies of deep blue here will always hold a facination for me!
Not too mention thunderheads! What a sight!
I told you in my last letter abut the drastic difference in the time here. Would you be shocked to learn that this pictures was taken at 8pm?
Even my grass is full of little buds…
Daisys and dew… is there a more potent picture of spring?
These are the newlybudding leaves of the pear tree in my back yard…
Aren’t they weird?
My neighbors are taking advantage of the good weather to have a new roof put on. Here in Germany they erect catwalks surrounding all four sides of the house and go to work! It’s rather neat to watch.
Sorry I couldn’t resist this shot! I love my zoom!
This will be my last post for some time. There are only a handful of days until my mother arrives here in Germany for a two week visit and I have projects left to finish up, grocery shopping to do, and of course the house must be cleaned. So, I won’t be around until after she has left for home. You can bet on the fact that I’ll be back with hundreds of pictures though! 🙂
Until we meet again,
