We’re finally experiencing a glorious green Spring! A few days ago Owlie and I took a quilt out to the back yard and lay on our backs for an hour soaking up the sun, listening to the birds and taking in the beauty around us. It was one of those moments where I stopped whatever I was doing and just experienced being with my boy.
From my spot on the quilt, lying on my back (and side) I was able to capture all this beauty in my yard. Above, this dogwood branch is poking over the fence from our neighbor’s yard. It makes me happy! And below, the crepe myrtle just budding which I love to see from my bathroom window when it’s in full fuschia bloom.
This tree was directly above our heads. Glorious green against a perfect blue sky.
I always get excited for this next one. It’s a hydrangea, and due to whatever is in the soil in this particular part of our yard, it blooms deep purple. Sweet sigh.
Remember my pink dogwood? It’s getting lots of green now. Soon the blooms will be gone.
But this one, fallen very near where we were resting, struck a perfect pose for my camera. Seriously. I am in love with every thing about this picture.
I am officially declaring my love for the flowering dogwood branch.
After two days of rain, I’m looking out this window this morning and it seems we might have another fine day on our hands. I think a stroll to the park is in order.
Wish you could join me!
