The weather was to be gray, with a touch more gray and about 2 inches or rain Monday and Tuesday.
What a great gift to see the sun come out yesterday afternoon, and be here again this morning.
It really did make me think that summer is coming up fast and I had better get out while the getting is good.
There was so much activity on my walk, and it made me think that maybe I need a tape recorder instead of a camera.
The birds were signing songs of pure joy.
I was also listening to the song of frogs as they are gaining their summer voices.
Last year this Clematis bloomed the 3rd week of April, here we are into May and the first bud has begun to open.
I have 2 of these and one seemed to have died. I was just a little sad to see it go. Then one day I was surprised to see that 3 vines have come up off the root. I don't think I will get blooms this year from those vines but, they are happy to be climbing up the building on some wire we put out for them.
I find out all they time that we have plenty of native plants here from honeysuckle to wild Azalea.
I wish I was that person who cultivated such things, then again, maybe they are best left alone to pop up where they are most happy.
Can you stand one more picture of the pond?
Here she is in all her spring clothes.
This is one of my favorite views of the pond.
You will have to come and see this one day for yourself.
Oh, just do it.
Leave your cares behind you and take a drive.
I did on Sunday, but without my camera, so please go over and see the beautiful pictures Tracey took.
