pretty spring day

This afternoon, DH and did a little yard work. That means DH shoveled a lot of mulch and I got to drive the mower, pulling the wagon.


The redbud trees are at their peak of perfection right now.

The Virginia bluebells look so pretty in the evening sunlight.

This was taken from the back yard, looking down the slope toward the trees. We need to plant daffodils along the edge of the woods. This morning, at dawn, DH was looking out the kitchen window, which has this same view, and saw four deer chasing a fox away from our little woods. The fox tried to go back several times and the deer chased it away each time.

I wondered if the deer were protecting a fawn. We’ve scared them up in the back yard before. So, after finishing the yard work, DD and I took a ride on the mower to see if we could find any deer. Nope, none to be seen. At least, not this time. But I did get a nice picture of the back of the house from the bottom of the slope.

Around the base of the oak, there are a lot of spring flowers blooming. Bleeding hearts and violets…

Sweet William, which we dug years ago from the woods near the farm where DH grew up.

This morning I found a cabbage butterfly on a daffodil. The air was chilly enough that the butterfly wasn’t warm enough to fly away, so I was able to get some nice closeup shots.


The beauty of God’s creation never ceases to amaze me.

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”
Romans 1:20
