“I appreciate the misunderstanding I have had with Nature over my perennial border.  I think it is a flower garden; she thinks it is a meadow lacking grass, and tries to correct the error.”

  6. Such beautiful photos, and they truly capture Spring! How wonderful that you caught both the bunny and robin on film. I definitely miss the change of
    seasons out here in the West. We do have our flowering rebirth and emerging summer grass, but we are limited as to the flowers we can grow. I appreciate being able to share yours!

  26. Wonderful photos and my youngest would love to get her hands on that Buddha 🙂

    It seems we’ve created a bit of a stir. Apparently I’m now famous at the Cubby Hole because I’ve been featured on your blog. It looks like that is a higher accolade than if I’d been published in one of the magazines! 🙂
