Ah, spring is in the air, even if it’s still 3 days away. The past week has been absolutely gorgeous and everyone here has enjoyed it. In our neck of the woods, by the way, we don’t have real winters, at least not ones like most people experience. No snow, no freezing, blustery days (or very few of them, at least). And while, I’m a winter lover, after a while the unrelenting brownness of it all can get a little old . . . brown grass, bare trees, etc. But Spring is on the threshold and with it, comes green, yellow, pink, all my favorite colors.
I started some of the seeds from Baker Creek. Pictured: Red Romaine.
The azaleas have flowers on them.
The blueberry plants are blossoming.
So are the bradford pear trees down by the pond.
The animals have been enjoying the nice weather, too.
Check out how long his beard is.
Snoody, who hardly ever struts long enough for me to snap a picture of him, has been showing off a lot lately. Isn’t he a handsome fellow? And such a sweet one, too. Unlike boss turkey, Jim Bob.
Meanwhile, Verity has been more incessant than ever about demanding her daily walk around the pond, so much so, that we’ve started walking twice a day. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor. . . well, apparently she doesn’t know the meaning of the words “Not today.”
And with spring comes breeding season. Something the birds (and me) are gearing up for. In fact, look what we found today:
A turkey egg! Laid by Pattycake; now the Royal Palm girls just need to start laying.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
