Spring Bloom....

The bleeding heart is going strong putting out its rows of blooms. We are back to cold weather this morning but it is going to warm up. I have a mass of New England bluebells that are about to open also.

Deck, Be Gone....

This view was greeting me this morning as I walked out on the deck. It was warm out there as Iowa has turned the corner on the cold weather.  This will be one of my last deck photos for a while as workmen are coming today to remove the deck. A new sunroom is going to replace this deck and a new deck will be built south of the new room. We are getting excited about our new addition. Within a two week period we will have to tolerate the no deck situation.

Looking the opposite direction there is a prettier sight.  The big tree is getting its leaves and is looking green now.

The resurrected King.....is resurrecting me.

The dove was prancing around trying to find loose seed on the boards. They really do like the same pair that I had last year.  They spook easily so I have to move slowly to get the photo.

The one finally opened with the grape hyacinths at its feet. This is the one kind of daffodil that I like best.  I would like to buy the ones that have orange centers.

Cold Pink....

I had to wear my winter coat this morning to go out and take this shot.  We dropped temps throughout the night but it didn’t snow. These tulips are not pink but they are closed tight right now reacting to the cold.

Spring Shot.....

I retook the photo of the grape hyacinth to show it in full bloom. I promise that more things will be in bloom and I will have more things to share in the future to give me new and divers subject matter.
