I spent a bit of time outdoors this afternoon, and decided to take my camera out and about and record a few of the happenings around the yard. Here is what I found ~
Newly planted onions in the patio garden ~
Oregano coming back for a new year in the herb garden ~
We moved the picnic table to the yard by the play area – it will be a wonderful place for a picnic under the trees this summer, as well as for drawing in our nature journals ~
The kids have been having fun swinging in this hammock that we hung out between two of the trees – it seems more like a cocoon than a hammock! Here is Anna having a turn ~
David is a happy camper this year since he has learned how to pump on the swing and doesn’t need anyone to push him! ~
The pond has filled up nicely over the winter and is a pretty scene ~
Kids playing on the trampoline – always a favorite spot ~
Jack enjoying the nice weather ~
Mattie working on his car . . .
. . . using his computer to help – ah, modern technology! ~
And finally, a few signs of Spring on the way (besides the nice temperatures!) – a budding bush outside the kitchen window ~
My irises coming up at the front of the house ~
And I found redbuds beginning to “purple” along the back of our property! ~
I’m so glad that it’s nice enough to be outside – I’ll be making good use of my porch from now on!
Have a wonderful evening!
