Signs of Spring!

"Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

And so it has! I am reminded once again of a quote from a movie that I happen to like: "How do you feel? ------ I feel young!"

The previous owners of stately manor really planted the yard up. Behold the proud statements of Spring (click to enbiggen):

So once again I feel renewed and reawakened after a long slumber. New opportunities and adventures await! 


  1. Beautiful flowers. The day I moved into my new place it snowed, but I think that's the last of it. Daffodils just starting to come out. Range time is soon.

  2. @ Matt- True! I still am drawn outdoors however.

    @ Brigid, Thanks! I had little to do with them. Daffodils baffle me. 2 hours north of here they have come and gone. Range time! I am all about that! New toy will be here tomorrow and at least six for concealed carry class in two weeks! Yea!

  3. Beautiful flowers. It is making me wish I was back in WA State.

  4. Very nice! Now you've gotta keep them up...LOL

  5. @ Supi- Thanks but trust me I had nothing to do with it!

    @ NFO- LOL! Probably will not happen, these people had a four row garden out back! No time!
