The lady cardinal is taking her bath while she and her mate chirp at each other.

The turtle is on her sunning stone in the middle of her pond.

The wind gently blows the wind chime giving me a tune.

The garden is almost completely turned with shovel and hands.

The vegetables in their little cardboard tray wait to be planted.

The ginkgo tree is covered in little leaves and the red tip photinia has burst into bloom.

The red shouldered hawk soared over us and swooped low over the 13 acre field.

The small gray hawks are having territorial issues.

The grandkids have returned home and the boy already wants to come back.

The kitchen is a mess but the day is calling me outside.


  1. OK you cna't use the grandkids as an excuse any longer ... get those vegetables planted. (just kidding) Enjoy the spring day!

  2. Sounds like a beautiful day to be outside.

  3. Sounds like life is pretty good there right now ...

  4. It's mighty hard to stay inside these days, isn't it?

  5. The Bug is ready to head home from work :)

  6. Pretty much summed up our week outside, minus the 13 acres, but with a spastic dachshund running amok, smelling it ALL.

    Yes, spring.

  7. holding the pieces still makes them "the" and you are so not a "the" person . . . but sometimes that's how we get to hold the pieces . . . steven

  8. It all sounds wonderful to me Ellen. glad you had a fun time with the grandkids. enjoy.

  9. These early spring days always call to our hearts and souls.
    Love the sights and sounds of the garden.

  10. yes, it's time to come out of the winter shell and celebrate spring.

  11. Such a beautiful spring chant. I hope you enjoyed a bit more of the outside ;-)

  12. Don't worry about the kitchen. The mess won't run away >:)

    Cold As Heaven

  13. And what a delightful place for the grandkids to come and do some planting.


I opened my big mouth, now it's your turn.
