Sandi; Wow! That's a lot of rain! I wonder if that's the same weather system that crossed the U.S. some days back. We were spared of the brunt of it, here, but I could see the heavy rains on radar as they soaked the mainland. It sounds as though it was well timed for you, though! Your garden must be very pretty by now. :-)

My neighbours lawn is covered in water after all the rain we have had.



Three weeks ago the water companies put a hose-pipe ban in place that meant over 10 million folk in the central and eastern regions could not use any water for watering gardens, washing cars, filling swimming pools etc.
Every day, since this happened, we have had rain!!! lol

Spring is on its way, I noticed the ash trees now have young sprouts - they are always the last trees to get their leaves.

There are tiny new leaves sprouting on the vine in the foreground of today's photo! Another sign of spring! Yippee!!! :-)



The weeping willows and cotton woods, both early to leaf-out, have small leaves as well! The oaks, maples and dogwoods are beginning to burst their buds, too! My daffodils have almost gone by, now, when they are usually at their peak at the end of April and early May. I can't believe what an early spring we're enjoying this year! On the flip side, we're also experiencing an early tick season.... oh, well, you gotta take the good with the bad. :-)

Sandi; Yes,it's been a very soggy few days here; but like so many are saying, we needed the rain. No snow here, thank goodness! Hope all is well with you... no crazy weather in your neck of the woods, is there?

Linda; No damage from weather, thankfully; just some drooping flowers in my garden after the battering they're received- poor things! I've seen deer tracks but no deer since Easter. I'm sure that if I timed it right, I'd see them pass by every morning, since they're such creatures of habit. I'm guessing that when I saw them, they'd probably just gotten up from where they bed down for the night, had taken a nice drink at the pond and were headed out to graze for the morning. I'm anxious to see the new fawns; they should be coming along any time now!

Janetlee; Your rhododendron inspired me to take a look at the bushes by my driveway, but their buds are still wrapped tight. We're staying warm & dry, thanks, and I hope you are, too!

I decided I'd better take photo a our rhodoendron before all the blossums dropped. I see you are getting some of the rain we had over the week-end and our temps are about the same this a.m. such crazy weather this year. Max & I say that for every season so it seems sometimes.
Oh back to the boxes~I believe it is just odd bits of birc-a-brac. I'm sure it's too important or it would not still be packed away. I know the attic has a lot of past toys,school papers, etc.
Stay dry & warm~and remember its a jungle out there

Hi, Beth,

I got wind of that big snowstorm scheduled, but see you're in for rain and wind. I remember what you said about the moderating influences of the water - it looks like you're going to be helped out.

Hope there's no damage in your area from wind - oh! and was wondering if you've seen the deer again?

OOh, it is raining in your view today :(

I read in someone's blog, I forget whose, that Maine is due to get freezing rain and snow!

The weather is so confused!
And so are we!!!!

Sandi; That is a dark sky! Did you have a soaker (eventually), today? April showers bring May flowers!

Bug; Gus sounds like such a sweetie! My Triton has turned into a real lover, too. Sometimes strays seems to be so much more appreciative of their homes; almost as though they were grateful. When we took Triton to the Vet the day after we brought him home, he said that Triton probably wouldn't have lasted the day. At 2.8 ounces he was just a bit of fluff, so small that the Vet didn't even want to try to take his temperature or do too much to him. Now that he's a well-filled out, regal, long-haired cat, you'd never know he'd had a rough start in life. Have you posted any photos of Gus yet? I'd love to see what he looks like!

Janetlee; How nice to see all that green! I'm noticing that our grass is getting greener and some bushes have tiny leaves sprouting. Cherry trees are beginning to blossom, too! Hooray! The Rhododendron are still forming buds, but hopefully, they will be flowering soon.

Wow- boxes from 1972?! Do you still know what's in them?

as you can tell our pond has "greened" out. In fact I have a rhododendron in full bloom now. We planted 2 but one died,or so we thought, cut it down to "parade rest" as Max says when something is over & done. It came back the following year but has not bloomed as yet.
I got a chuckle out of your conversation with Bug about stuff in the attic. I have boxes that have been packed and shipped half way around the world & back again in our attic. They were packed for our 1st move in'72!! I've told the kids I'm keeping it so when we are no longer here they can go through it and say"What in the world were they thinking & why did they keep this old thing!"
Stay safe--its a jungle out there

Oh, yeah, Gus is well on his way to being spoiled rotten.

I don't really think he'd have lasted much longer outside on his own. He was probably a week or two away from buying the farm.

He'll be lying on his footstool, half awake. I'll say something to him like, "Are you a happy kitty?" and he'll just start kneading his paws like crazy.

He's a real breadmaker!

Talkative, too. You say something to him and 9 times out of 10, he'll meow back at you.

He's so sweet and loving. Such a change from my last two; they were like woodpile cats.

Hi Beth, my view is not quite fully green but definitely grey today :(


The clouds turned the sky dark .... and not a drop fell in my garden, but it was so dark, I am sure someone got a drenching!

Bug; The links are fun, but I'm happy just to see you! :-) I'd love to have a an undiscovered treasure turn up in my attic, too! Wouldn't that be nice?

Your weather must be becoming very summer-like, now. We are getting the occasional warm day up in the low-70's, but mostly, we're still in the 50's and 60's. I'm trying to be patient and not rush into this year's vegetable garden too soon!

Hope all is going well with you and new kitty, Gus; although I imagine that he doesn't feel like a "new" kitty anymore.

Thanks for stopping by! :-)

No cool link for you this week. I'm not sure what happened but PBS didn't seem to have anything good on. If they did, I missed it.

I did watch Roadshow Monday night. I love that thing and sure wish I had some odd family heirloom stuffed in a closet somewhere or something I found in the trash that turned out to be worth a fortune!

Sandi; How nice to see you here! I hope you have time to rest and and recuperate from the long drive and the stresses and sadness that come with such a loss. I'm sure your aunt was so grateful to have you near; even a strong lady likes to have moral support from time to time.

Your garden must be bursting with green by now and I would love to see a new photo of it! You have such a talent for putting together an attractive garden setting.... maybe you missed your calling and you should have been a landscape designer!

Have a wonderful day! :-)

I must get around to posting a photo of my greenth view.

I am feeling very lazy today, but I think it is a reaction to spending four days with my aunt over the weekend. She is holding it together. She is showing one face to her public, but I am sure in private it is a different matter. I know how she feels.. we are very similar. Strong personalities, always right and can be bossy! (According to my sister!) lol

{{{Sandi}}}; You're welcome! The green you see is still just the pines and the moss. The trees are stark-bare-naked with buds just starting to show signs of thickening, so we have a long ways to go yet before we have leaves on the trees.

Hope you have a lovely weekend, too! :-)

Gamma; I should have videoed the deer instead of taking photos, then people could have followed their movements... hopefully I get another chance, someday!

I'm glad to hear that you had a nice Easter; it sounds like fun to enjoy it outdoors by the pool! I spent part of Easter outdoors with my grandkids, but we had coats on!

Hope you're having a GREAT week! :-)

Bug, I cannot see them either and I have tried and tried... my eyes are not that good but I have on my glasses!


Good morning Beth, yes we had a really nice Easter Day with all the local kids/grands.
It was nice enough we were all in the pool; well the grands were all in the pool. some of us adults had on swim suits just in case we needed to actually get into the water instead of just sitting on sides of pools ... I think I got in up to neck once ...I still like the water at least in mid 80's or higher!

Glad you had a nice Easter with your family.

You enjoy your week!

Bug; It's not just you; those deer are very hard to see. If I hadn't seen them myself firsthand and knew where to look, I'd be having a hard tough time picking them out, too.

Thanks for the link to the latest PBS show! Travel was so much more difficult and hazardous back then!

Hope all is well with you & I hope you had a wonderful Easter!

Linda told me where to look but, I swear, I must be blind!

Watched another good show on PBS last night and you can watch it online here:Link.

I haven't watched much about the Titanic this past few weeks. It is such a sad thing.

This show focuses on the people and their descendants, rather than on the ship and the sinking, itself. Interesting but disturbing, for the most part.

At least two good things came out of the sinking. Ships were soon required to have "Marconi" systems and full complements of life boats.

Mass; I know you've been busy so it's wonderful to hear from you; I hope you get a chance to slow down and enjoy a lovely Easter holiday! Thanks for stopping by and I love those adorable sleeping bunnies!

Gamma; I'm sure that you had a fabulous Easter weekend with your family, but I'll say it anyways.... Happy Easter!

My daffodils are slowly coming into flower and hyacinth are emerging from the ground with tightly packed buds that show promise of being loaded with lots of flowers! I can't wait! Nothing on the trees yet, but in another 4 to 6 week, we'll see the first trees start to green-up!

Juslivn; What a gorgeous spring bouquet! Hope you had a great Easter!

Bug; I wish I could say that we're starting to leaf-out... not for a while yet. You're still just seeing the green on the pine trees. It'll be another month or more before we see any leaves on the trees. A lot of people comment on seeing more green, but up here in the cold north, it won't happen until mid-late May and some trees don't leaf-out until June.

I haven't had a chance to look at those shows, but they're on my must-see list!

Yes, the deer are very good at blending in and it doesn't help that the photos are small, but they are there.... honest!

Sandi; Oh, how sweet! Happy Easter!

GardenGirl; Happy Easter! Try enlarging the screen (Control +) and see if you can see the deer, down near the bottom of each photo. The last picture has one right in the bottom/left corner.

SkyPony; Happy Easter! I love the subtle changes in my view.... which is why I wanted to share it with you all! :-)

Linda; Woo-hoo! You found them! This was an amazing sight to see! I've seen deer, coyotes, possums and assorted other critters out my window, but this was the first time I'd seen a whole herd crossing through the woods! I dashed for my camera and turned it on and just started taking photos as fast as I could as they glided between the trees, a whole parade of them, big ones and smaller ones, 10 to 30 feet apart. It took several minutes for them all to pass by and it was thrilling to watch! No fawns, yet, but I expect that the does will give birth later this month or in early May.

And, yes, you're right, they are moving from left to right!

Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

I think you're doing a late April fool! I've looked with my glasses and without, with a magnifying glass and without, now I'm going to take my contacts out, which I often do for really close work. Hang on just a sec...

Ah, HA! There ARE deer! I spotted the one in the last photo first. What threw me off is the size of the trees. They're much larger than I realized, and so I expected the deer to be proportionally larger. It looks like they're moving from left to right, yes? What a fun treat to find in your Easter basket!

Good morning and Happy Easter! My family will be here shortly for Easter brunch, so just a quick post to thank you all for your holiday greetings and I'll be back later to response to everyone individually. But before I go, I just have to tell you about the sight that awaited me when I looked out my bedroom window to take my daily photo.... a herd of deer was moving through the woods, single file! They ghosted through the trees and were only visible by their movements... see if you can spot them! (Clue: look at lower edge of picture.)

Happy Easter!

I did see 'watch online' when you open up the link, so I think you're good to go.

It looks like things are starting to leaf out up there, judging from your latest photos.

Spring has sprung here, for sure. All the trees and shrubs are completely leafed out.

The grass is shooting up, too, much to Hubby's dismay. Lawn mower season has arrived.

Hi Peace!

I realize it's been quite some time since I've been able to post here, but I've been on such a hectic schedule the past few months. Nevertheless, I wanted to stop by and wish you and yours a GOOD FRIDAY and MANY ...



Thought you'd also enjoy this adorable pic posted by HopeinHim, on April 1st and found in the Wunderground AC photo gallery this past week. It, too, seems so fitting for this upcoming Easter Sunday and for springtime in general. ENJOY!

Hi, Beth.

I watched another couple of good TV shows on PBS Tuesday night.

Margaret Mitchell: American Rebel and Harper Lee: Hey Boo. They were very interesting.

Janetlee; Those flowers are so pretty! Thanks for bringing a little more spring to my blog! The green you see in my photos are just the White Pines; our trees are still as bare as can be.

We were lucky to miss the snow; I was watching the snow-line on the radar yesterday and we were just east of it. Our temperatures hovered at around 35, and as you probably know, that sometimes still comes down as snow if the temperatures aloft are cold enough.

I hope our days warm up soon, too; today was up near 50 degrees and sunny.... that's a good start for the first day of April! Thanks for stopping by! :-)

I thought i would add some of my spring flowers to your collection. I do believe your morning shots are showing up a bit more green. I thought about you last evening watching the weather channel while they were talking of the light snow moving across parts of NY and into MA. It looked as though it would miss the Cape. Hope your days warm up soon.

Linda; I love cardinals, too, but then I enjoy all birds. When I was filling up the bird feeder yesterday, the chickadees were flitting around, alighting on branches just a foot or two away from me, impatiently awaiting their next meal and it was so delightful to see them up-close!

Yes, the day is warming up nicely from temperatures of 31 when I last took Sammy out the previous night, up to the mid-40's today!

Enjoy those strawberries and I hop you have a wonderful day!

Oh! I wondered where all the comments had gone off to - it's a new month!

I love your cardinal pics. I hadn't noticed them before - I'm so bad about looking at the sidebars, and I don't spend much time in the photo galleries at all. I love cardinals - that was our school mascot, for one thing, but it isn't really nostalgia for all that. They're just so beautiful, and they sing so beautifully.

Guess what I brought home from the local farmers' market yesterday? Fresh strawberries! The pick-your-own fields are open now, and my goodness, the berries are wonderful. The heat and rain have produced a great crop - time to start eating away!

Hope you day is wonderful. I see you have sunshine and 45 - that's a pretty nice start to the day!

From Proserpina:


From Sandi:

Happy April, and hopefully a few more brighter days and greenth on your trees.

The smaller trees alongside my garden are now in leaf, with the big ash trees budding up - another week or so and I will be fully green, then I will take you a photo:)
