Last week I was out & about and here are a few of the pics.
In my own yard….
Brussel sprouts! I was shocked to see this is growing from the last year. It was the first time I grew it so that was one of my experiments.
This beautiful tree blooms for a very short time every Spring. Such a pretty addition to the landscape. I wish it lasted longer!
Hydrangeas are budding.
Tulips & Hyacinths…..no garden is complete without them.
Nor these, unfortunately.
I love this place. It’s a house on a corner so it’s easy to see the pond from the side street. It was quiet on this day. Usually it’s brimming with geese and ducks.
Only one lonely duck on this day.
Then just down the road, this beautiful pair.
I hadn’t been to this pond in quite some time and was delighted to see this beautiful swan.
Her partner was across the pond when I started feeding her but not for long.
What beautiful creatures!
We’ve had a very wet spring in the northeast and it hasn’t been very much fun.
But there is a bright side.
Flowering trees have all exploded at the same time. I’m happy to enjoy the beautiful sight even if just for a short time.
So that’s what’s been going on in my area over the last week. I hope you are enjoying the bounty of Mother Earth’s wand too! I look forward to seeing everyone’s posts on Tootsie’s Fertilizer Friday.
