Though not yet for everyone across the land, here in Portland we have Spring. I thought I’d share a few pictures taken in our garden over the last couple of days.

By the way, I haven’t forgotten my promise to begin posting on the books I read last Fall during my “blog pause”. Soon, I assure you.

    I was just visiting your blog today. So glad to hear from you. The rhododendrons and azaleas are gorgeous. It is springy here in Santa Barbara too, sometimes almost feeling like summer.

    Very, very nice. A friend in North Carolina sent me a picture of her azaleas (bright red) too. We’ve had an unusually cold and miserable Spring so far in the Northeast. In fact, yesterday was only the fifth day of (barely) above normal temperatures this month, and only the tenth such day since March 1. Jackie wishes we had stayed another month in Florida.

    Welcome back. I hope we’ll see more regular posting from now on.

    So much lovelier than the barren waste that is my back yard, Rick. Happy Spring1

  4. Our snow has just melted and we may see temperatures in the 60s today. We hired a landscaping guy to remove our downed tree, spread mulch, and clean up our yard. You flowers look great, but I loath yard work.

    • Our garden was a lot of work the first few years, but with planning and putting mostly perennials, it’s only some mulching, a little pruning and watering. We enjoy getting out in the sun and fresh air after Winter. I know you have allergies, so I understand why you’d not like it.

  5. Gorgeous spring in your neck of the woods, Rick. You are very fortunate to live among such glory. Here in N.C. we’ve had a recalcitrant sort of Spring. But little by little, it’s showing up. Better late than never. So glad you’re posting again, I hope we’ll hear more from you as summer approaches.

  6. Great photos, or do I mean great flowers 🙂
    We’re having a wet and cold spring so far, but I think we’re starting to turn the corner, of maybe that’s just wishful thinking.
