Dogwoods are blooming:
New leaves on the trees:
|For those of you worried, this is not the bastard weed overtaking the roadsides in Texas.|
I also have white irises blooming along the driveway and I saw wild violets out in the pastures. I just love the first blush of Spring!
In the house, things also got changed up a bit. The fireplace mantel refreshed with a dogwood garland, watering can, and a bunny of course!
I got the shutters from a friend who rescued them from a neighbor. They smelled like smoke and were very dirty. I cleaned them then painted them in ASCP Old White and waxed them. I like even if they are too small for the window! :o)
And can I say yay? After almost 5 months of healing from the broken knee, I am walking around the farm again. I still let Bruce hold onto the dogs as they pull on the leashes in their excitement. The nice thing is they are learning to come when called, so we will let them run loose in some areas. One of those areas is the pond.
Sadly, it is shrinking in size again. The dogs don't mind though as there is plenty of water left for them to splash in:
|Buddy beat Herbie to the stick!|
Bruce got to try out his new loader on the tractor and used it to patch the driveway. It's going to be very handy to have!
The weather was cloudy but warm on Saturday. We sat out on the porch and enjoyed the evening. Can't wait to have more of those kind of days! Very, very soon!
The bluebonnets are really starting to show up along the roadsides and pastures. Nothing like the beautiful blanket of blue and they smell heavenly! Looks like a good showing this year! I need to go take some photos!
