April showers have missed us so far...

but the skies are dreary...
and gray...
columbine is coming up every where...
it will bring the humming birds...
lilies and columbine...
it's growing up around the rocks...
this in on the list for tomorrow...
and these are going to get painted as soon as it's warm enough...
you can see all the new buds trying to come out...
Mr Wiggles thinks he's a bird watching...
there were 2 cardinals on the fence until he showed up...
so many things are waking up...
I think I will clear coat this...
I like where it is...
it is dark enough the flash would go off part of the time...
but we have our first dandelion...
only one...
potato soup and ham and cheese sandwiches for supper tonight...
it's 51 here with wind...
so it's a cool  and damp 51...

I love your photos here. You are lucky the rain is missing you. I finally get a day after the snow and was finishing up the last corner of leaf pick up and the rain started.

Your photos look like Spring is coming-slow but sure...and hey...I was just wondering...is that chair in the firepit so you can warm your butt? just askin'....just so you know~that won't work very good...hey-no need to kill the messenger. Hooray...Hooray...we have snow coming. I can't wait.. (As you can see-April Fool's Day lasts all day for me..and doesn't STOP at noon as some suggest!)..back to Springing up my house! xxoo Diana

Hi Tete Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful share you have today. I love walking around your gardens with you. I adore the little girl holding out her skirt. Is that precious or what? Adore that little green cart as well.

Oh I can't wait to see what jumps out of your yard as the weather starts to warm.

We had a beautiful 95 degree day today. I am sunburned but the back yard sure looks pretty. I mowed and edged and got every thing clean, where I can enjoy it for a couple of days. Filled up the bird baths 2 times today, as the birdies were SO hot, they were standing in the bird bath to cool down.

Hope you have a glorious weekend sweet friend. I will think of you tomorrow as I begin work on the front yard.

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Hi Tete, Visiting you for the first time from blogland in MI. Love your amazing spirit, hope you don't mind a new follower. I'm on a ten acre prairie and so excited because I just spotted a tulip bulb sprouting up. Enjoy your weekend!
