A beautiful beginning to the day and I decided to take a longer walk to the bench in the pasture.
Since I want to avoid the steepish bit at the top of the road, the walk involves going downstairs to the basement, out the basement door, and through the front yard to cross the driveway.
The hellebores were blooming by the little log garden shed.
These are something the increasingly troublesome deer don't eat, thank goodness.
At the bench there was a fine panoramic view, well worth the hobble!
And on every side, signs of renewed life.
A good time to be alive...
