May Garden

 "'Tis like the birthday of the world,
When earth was born in bloom;
The light is made of many dyes,
The air is all perfume:
There's crimson buds, and white and blue,
The very rainbow showers
Have turned to blossoms where they fell,
And sown the earth with flowers."
-  Thomas Hood

Under The Weather

We've been under blue skies and sunshine for the past few days.
Ninety degrees, and when it's that hot in Spring we are usually facing thunderstorms before the day is through.
True to form, as I'm typing, dark clouds have now moved in, and  blustery winds are whipping the trees.
Hoping wherever you call home, all is all calm.

Golden Meadows

Drive along any country road in Middle Tennessee during the month of May, and you can't help but notice the fields are covered in yellow flowers.
The Meadow Buttercup ( Ranunculus acris ) is gathered for it's annual parade, it's bright, waxy petals, waving in the spring breezes for all who care to enjoy.

Springtime

Incredible blue skies and sunshine today. Lots of the stuff, it surely feels like we are in the midst of summer with this 85 degree heat.
Tom-Tilly has been paying close attention to the new frog at the little pond, it wears a kitty out.
The flowers are bursting out in full bloom, a virtual rainbow of colors, each day, a new surprise.
Mama birds are feeding their babies, and new fawns are making their appearances.
Hoping your day, is just as lovely.
