Yay, flower time in MN. Renewal, beauty, and a chance to hang out with my kids and laugh. Last Friday James and I went to the nursery and picked out plants and flowers for my little garden and flower boxes and pots. I have a little garden because as much as I love flowers, I despise weeding. My goal is to cram in so many perennials in the plot that the weeds have no room to grow. :) Now if I could just keep the deer from giving my day lilies a buzz cut.Another sign of spring here is the turkeys. This is a picture of the one who was taking a stroll through the back yard.
And the calves. We drive by a pasture full of calves on our way into town. In April the cows drop their calves, tan, black, brown, some with white faces, all adorable. There must be about 100 calves, napping, running, nursing, and staring amazed as cars go by on the gravel road. I stopped to snap this little beauty one day last week. By October she'll be a husky vealer about three times this size.
What are the signs of spring where you live?
