Spring is slowly showing her face these days. After a cloudy start today, we're now under blue skies and warming temps! This past winter we had our four, sixty year old Dogwoods pruned. I thought for sure all the trampling and branches falling along with winter would do in the Primroses beneath the trees. No Way!
Here we are looking down the row of four. It's a little hard to see the color, but keep reading...
Isn't it wonderful to see so much color so early in the season? They pretty much never stopped blooming LAST spring! I think most of them kept on blooming throughout winter, along with quite a few of the winter pansies we planted in the fall!
Here we are looking out from the front porch. In driving around town, I think we have one of the most colorful yards so far! Miguel, who mows the lawn along with his wife Erica was here today for the first spring mowing. He also pruned the apples, pear and grapes along with some other small shrubs.
Look here - there is even a cat growing in the front yard (wink)! Sugar heard my voice and came around from her sunny perch on the other side to say hello!
Last summer it was all I could do to just get close enough for a light pat on the head. Now she rolls over, stretches and wiggles her back legs while I give her a good tummy scratching! Kitty love, I say!
Speaking of kitty love, this little one has melted our hearts already! She's feeling right at home and talking up a storm! We call her motor mouth or little miss walkie talkie! She is hiding under a chair while Mr. Squash washes the outside windows. There are many sounds she isn't used to yet...dishwasher, TV, dust buster, but she's being a real trooper!
On the quilting front I'm nearly finished binding the flag quilt and almost done with the March Sweet Stitches project. I'll show them to you soon!
