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 . . ."
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?
Such an inviting place!
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.
Elizabeth -- the recipe from a past spring is here -- https://vickilanemysteries.blogspot.com/search?q=recipe+nettle+soup
I enjoyed your journey even more with the snow softly falling outside my window this morning.
Thank you! - I’d love to walk with you! So beautiful ❤️
