And, since I started this post, we've gone out again, this time to a road next the river. Here's the Big Blue River, which isn't very blue anymore.
Here are more daffodils. The crocuses are gone, and the tulips and iris are not budding yet. The peonies, of which we have many, are just coming up.
In this one, taken by my Cuter & Shorter Half, you can clearly see some of her found objects.
Here is what a closeup of a daffodil looks like, again taken by my C&SH.
And here is a shot of a spiraea blossom from the bush by the house, taken by my C&SH. When I first saw the picture, I asked her where there were roses blooming! I guess I've never paid close attention to spiraea flowers!
And the surest sign of spring! I'm slowly getting the garden turned. I'm using a potato fork, but with my COPD, I can only turn three or four forkfulls before I get winded, but it's slowly coming along. A few more beautiful days like yesterday and today, and I'll have it finished.
