Sunday Happenings Around the Yard

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!
