Last week in the late winter sun, we were out enjoying the yard.
One of my sis-in-laws gave us this whirligig for Christmas. He is a lot of fun when the weather is mild. Right now he is taken down and tucked into a dry spot on the deck. The wind we get here on our hillside tends to not only send him spinning out of control, it also sends him spinning up the driveway if it is strong enough!
I thought I might do a blog and show you all the daffodils, but it is too wet for pictures, so this preview will have to do for now. The weather reports show rain until at least next Tuesday, so I am not sure when those photos will be forthcoming.
Last Friday I had a good friend over for lunch and conversation, we sat on the deck and then later ate our BLTs on the front porch in the sun.
We were viewing the poppies on the hillsides above the river.
In the thirteen years (as of yesterday) that we have lived here, we have always had poppies blooming there, mostly about mid-February. Except for last year. They did not show at all. So we were worried this year, when February came and went... no poppies.
But March brought them. I wish I had a better camera to zoom in on them and show the brilliant, dayglo orange when the sun hits them.
