Garden day

The day began bright and sunny and I was drawn to the buzzing, humming and twittering outside. I watched the birds and the bees, the budding plants and I was overall delighted with the progression of spring.

Something has to be said of the fresh green tips, the dark red, still unfurled, leaves of the maple trees, the just opened blossoms of the azaleas and the wisteria, climbing around the garage wall.

There were the sound of insects, birds busily flattering in and out of the hedges, looking for food, twigs and this and that to build their nests...

The lilac begins to green, in front of the, still standing, dried grasses from last year. A task waiting for me, to cut them, to make space for this year's growth.

In the afternoon all changed to kid's laughter on the trampoline, my son and friends sprung happily around and the sounds of
happy chatter rung through the otherwise quiet  neighborhood. These are the moments I so cherish!

My sweet young neighbors explored the blossoms and the garden at large, not missing a beat!

They discovered what I had found earlier this morning: The beauty of spring!

Wishing you all the joys of the season and a Happy Easter to come! May you all feel a sense of awakening and renewal!

Easter greetings to you all!

  1. Hello Victoria:
    Such lovely spring pictures which surely confirm, if confirmation were needed, the turning of the year. Your garden must be looking very pretty at the moment and you are clearly enjoying wonderfully warm weather.

    We wish you every joy this Eastertide.

    1. You are right, the garden readies itself, day by day! A little cleaning here and a small fixing there, but overall, nature takes care of herself!
      I enjoy this!

  2. Victoria,
    Spring makes me feel like a child.
    Wonderful images. Embrace each moment in and outside and enjoy Easter.

    1. Thank you, Patricia! Likewise, the sweetest Easter greetings to you all!

  3. There is something so exciting about watching a garden bloom! I love the transition into Spring - Your pictures are lovely. How fun to have children running around & laughing as well. Hope blooms new in the Spring!
