There's something both lonely and exciting about a patch of freshly cleaned garden. I know before long it will be beautiful!! (this picture is a couple of weeks old. The tulip above is the plant just behind the shepherd's hook here.)
I love it when I can bring the first bouquet inside to enjoy. This is tete-a-tete daffodils and scilla.
I have to grow the tulips near the house or the deer eat them. I don't mind at all.
The cherry tree outside the screen porch is just loaded with blossoms this year. Taking this picture, I was amazed how loud the sound of happy honeybees was!
Last Saturday I took a short drive (for me) to the Arts Council of Wyoming County in Perry. A local fiber artist I am acquainted with, Mary Ann Fritz, is exhibiting her work there this month. I was very glad I went. Her work is bright and nature inspired. Now that I've visited the gallery, I've decided I'll have to make it a habit. There's plenty of local talent to enjoy there!
If you enjoy nature as I do, it is frightening to think the protection afforded to some of the most beautiful places in America may be removed in favor of those short-sighted people who only see dollar signs. It's too late to "wait and see". Make a phone call, send an email. "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."- Dr Seuss, the Lorax
