It’s time for funky

“Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.”

~ Rainer Maria Rilke


Spring is finally here. We have color in the yard. I’ve been waiting.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!

Beauteous. My father called them “weeds.”

The first of many to bloom. See that hedge back there? All Rhodies.

Our beautiful Vinca

Oops…how did that get in here?! (To be truthful, winter was SO long this year…I’ll take any color.)

Began with cleaning up my greenhouse. Those weeds below are GONE!

And look what I found. Hundreds of them, on both sides. They come inside and even though the door is open–in fact, there is no door–they can’t get out (or choose not to).

Signs of activity, then and now. The favorite tree for Woodpeckers.

Yep, part of my trail. It was worse.

Aging green houses, and part of my coveted trail.

Guess who with her favorite tree?

Only ONE of our green houses took a hit in Portland’s recent wind storm. One.

And, the best for last. Can you tell what this is?

These were just the ticket, the boost I needed, to get back outside. They are parked safely inside the kitchen door, ready for me at a moment’s notice. They bring out the funky in me. It’s been a very long winter, but I’m ready to get my fingers dirty.

If you can’t find me, I’ll be out back. 😉
