Wallk With Me


The way into the woods . . .


The maples are hazed with red blooms . . .


I'll be back with gloves to pick nettles for nettle soup . . .


Out standing in my field . . .


Mystery trees a-bloom -- haws, maybe?


Since it seems deer don't eat hellebores, I'm going to begin transplanting some to other places.


The blue Lutyens bench John made . . .


Flowering quince . . . another something deer don't seem to bother. And it sends up lots of volunteers. More transplanting in my future . . .


On to the pond . . .


Pear bloom . . .


The gang, enjoying the sun . . .


Pear buds -- I love those pink edges . . .


And another blue bench . . .


Oriental magnolia bud . . .


Red leaf peach in bloom . . .


Oriental magnolia in bloom . . .


Reflections . . .


"That time of year thou mayst behold in me . . ."


Cantankerous Kate



Wind anemone


My escort leading the way . . .

I took 179 pictures . . . you'll likely see more in the coming days.

How wonderful. I missed seeing your blog first thing this morning...glad when I came back it was up! You wouldn't know it (of course you do by my comments!) how much your art (photos, words) means to me! Thank you.

I thought I'd scheduled it to post at 2 am as I usually do but somehow it was set for 12 pm. So I fixed it when I realized it hadn't poste. Thanks for the kind words, Barb!

What a lovely walk. Thanks for inviting us along. Beautiful pictures. I didn't realize people actually make nettle soup. Will you share the recipe one day on your blog?

I would love to actually take that walk with you and sit for a while on the blue bench. Thank you for the beautiful photos.

I enjoyed your journey even more with the snow softly falling outside my window this morning.
