Spring is such a lovely time where everyone takes in the lush new growth and beauty of the garden.
A few, and I mean, a very few wisteria survived the cold freezing temperatures of a few weeks ago. The vines were loaded with buds, but this is all there is now. Each one is enjoyed all the more for beating the odds.
Normally my backyard smells like heaven this time of year when the wisteria, honeysuckle trees, and the lilac all bloom at the same time. The bumblebees go into a frenzy over the wisteria blooms. But this year, even the lilac blooms are sparse, but at least they survived the cold.
The girls are enjoying the lovely weather and being able to get out and forage around the yard.
Sometimes all you can see are their tails in the air as they
meander around the herb garden.
And they love getting into the compost bin, eating the bugs, and kicking out all the dirt.
Home is my happy place, and there is no place I'd rather be than in my peaceful gardens with my girls.
