Spring 2011: BEFORE

That boy said it was time to take "before" photos of the yard,
and I thought "Too soon".  
And then today it was 63 degrees here in Louisville, Kentucky.  
It's February 16th, in case you don't have a calendar close. 
This is unusual. 
And I love it.  
The yard does too, apparently - I found these guys peeping up on the side of the house:

And then I decided that since I had my camera out, 
and it was such a lovely day, 
I should take a few more shots:

I took a picture of the Buddha that lives under the Japanese Maple.
No, I'm not being racist.

And there was this bird nest in the burning bush:
Can you tell what it is?
Maybe from a different angle: 
No?  Well, I did the best I could. 

And then there's the River Birch out front: 
I think this is my favorite tree in our yard.

This one's a close second, though, and will be first when we finally hire Steve to clean it up for us and cut out all of the dead that's left over from the ice storm a few years back.

I didn't get any good shots of it, but its got a great root structure - all lumpy and fairy-land-ish.  The sort of tree I used to play under with my Bambi figurines from McDonald's. 

I love outside.

  1. Ooh! Ooh! SPRING! How exciting! I spotted some baby flowers popping out of the ground today, too. My heart went pitter-pat-pitter-pat.

    It was delicious!


Please don't make me cry.
