Last weekend was just beautiful.
I actually wore shorts all day Sunday. Which, if you know me, the weather has to be atleast 75F for me to wear shorts.
Yeah, I stay cold.
All the sounds and smells of spring are so refreshing after being cooped up in the house all winter.
Outside, my wisteria were in full bloom.
The whipoorwill was singing on several nights. Which is one of my favorite sounds. But I was really surprised to hear it so early in the year.
And while driving I ran across a mayapple patch.
Sorry about the picture quality.
The first time I seen this, I was driving. The next day, The Captain was driving and I caught a picture as we drove by.
I haven’t seen mayapple since I left West Virginia, almost 20 years ago.
Around here the frogs sing year round. But only on the warmer winter nights. When it’s real cold, we don’t hear them. But they are singing loud and clear now.
Wednesday morning I awoke to a hard freeze. Very disappointing.
This is what my wisteria looks like now.
This picture was taken in the same spot as the above picture.
And this little honey bee was busy trying desperately to find a meal.
And I have been wanting to show you this picture I took last week as storms moved in the area.
This picture is straight out of the camera. No touch up whatsoever.
Actually, most of my pictures are straight out of the camera.
I figured this was just as good a place as any to stick this picture in.
One of the things you learn, living in the country, is to watch the animals.
They have an instinct that we don’t have.
When the sky was looking like this, my horses were acting very nervous.
Heads up, ears up, running in herd from one place to another.
I was constantly watching them and the sky.
But soon, they calmed and the skies cleared.
Thankfully, Mother Nature moved on.
