Lots of places are closed today including my girls’ dance studio. They have a spring performance coming up and I wonder how they’ll ever get the dances done with all the snow days we’ve been having. Even though it’s really beautiful outside, I am ready for the snow to be gone.
It’s been raining for a few days now, although, it seems the sun has come up today. The forecast for the week should be more rain and maybe even sleet on Mother’s Day. I actually love the rain and gray clouds. It might feel gloomy and depressing but it makes the earth so rich and vibrant with colors.
I’ve been meaning to take photos of the plants in the yard but kept forgetting until this morning. I’m really glad I got some nice shots. I’m always in awe of how drew droplets randomly sit on the leaves and flowers in such a way that it takes my breath away. I feel blessed to experience this small part of nature. It’s something so unimportant, yet, it gives me happiness.
When we had the front lawn landscaped, we had a couple of cistena plum bushes put in. Then we bought a couple more later on and planted those ourselves. For some reason, those two died after a couple of years of pretty blossoms. I wonder what happened. They were planted in the same area as the thriving ones. Going forward, we’ll probably replace them with something else. I do really love it when they flower though.
There is a nest by the front door up in the corner. When it gets windy this nest gets blown out of place and lands by the door. A new one always gets built right a way.
This all started last spring.
And, like last spring, an egg either falls out or gets pushed off, and makes a mess on the porch.
