It Was A Quiet Weekend .

Yes it was a quiet weekend this past weekend for Papa and I , not much going on , the weather was quiet as well with sunshine and clouds here and there all though the temps were chilly but still a nice and quiet weekend  . We just puttered about here and there , went for walks with Miggs who is doing well and her leg is almost back to normal  and she is becoming more like her old self again all though she does tire out faster these days poor old dog .

I went about here and there and took a few photos but for now there really isn't a lot to photograph as the land and yard is still in transition from season to season and it seems to be fighting between the seasons a bit but they said that by the end of the week we will have warmer spring temps  and rains and that will be the start of our warmer weather and  old man winter  with his chillness will officially be done  , I hope they are right .

                    Its nice to see the gardens , trees and bushes all budding and growing.

 All my Lilac bushes like this one in pic above are in full bud and I cant wait for them all to bloom . I have 4 different colours and they all look soo pretty each  spring and smell wonderful .

I just love how early the sun rises and how late the sun sets now and the colour of light it shines on everything .

I also love these clouds that look like they are in 3d in the sky filled with silver linings as they float over the valley  and our house  .

Soon it will be time to be outside more and get the yard and gardens ready for the season and have a few camp fires on the go , oh I cant wait .

In the mean time I will just keep  watch and try to capture more of spring  here and there .  I am happy to report that all our spring birds even the Song Sparrow that I was worried about not showing up  as he usually did is back to and they all sound so wonderful as their songs echo through out our valley and in our yard as they come to feast , perch and nest . Chipmunks have been busy back and forth very fast as they to fuel up from their slumber and get going with what chipmunks do . All is coming alive in and on the land once again  , oh and I heard the peepers last night to, I do love the sound of them , so spring is looking up for us here and I know all are happy about that , that's for sure. Well that's about it for me for now , hope where ever you live spring has truly  sprung .
                                                              Until next time .

Nothing sprouting around here. We'll be a few weeks behind the banana belt. :)

It is looking more and more like spring here too, but this crazy weather keeps changing. A lot of the plants here have damage from being so warm in February and then so cold in March and April. It's crazy! So glad Miggs is about well. I love the picture of you and him.

Our spring bulbs look about the same as yours. Just needing a bit of warmth to bring on the buds. The grass is starting to get a bit of green tinge, but not much. Quiet days here too, but soon we will be enjoying tea on the deck in some warmth.

We'll have to wait a couple of weeks here before we see much going on. Still snow on good parts of the ground here.

You are ahead of us here in Nashua, NH, Elaine. I also like lilac bushes and remember that we had two trees in our yard when I was growing up. Maybe that's why purple is also my favorite color. Glad the song birds and the peppers are returning as well.
