A Beautiful Day.......

Spring has finally made it to my part of the world. The forsythia hedge is blooming.....

The back end of our yard is very "natural" and it makes a lovely place to sit on a hot summer's day. There are three large fruit trees and there always seems to be a breeze. We grow lots of ferns and hostas down there as they like the shade but the odd little spring flower pops up among the grass....
It has been so rainy and the grass has gotten very high but it's too wet to mow as yet....
The poor daffodils are bent over from the force of the rain. The other leaves belong to lily plants that will be blooming once the tulips and daffodils have finished. They hide all the dying leaves very nicely.

In contrast this is what it looked like by the side of the road going home......a bit dead looking still.....


Well for Mother's Day I went to my youngest son's home and the weather was wonderful. We sat outside on my son's back patio and had a lovely cup of tea.

The short person got a new chapeau for the sun.......
And, we also saw her two best friends Lily.....
And, Jack.......
I couldn't get a good picture of Jack as he's all black and never stops moving:)
He finally crashed.

Take care:)
