Spring has sprung...

More gorgeous weather this week! The lakes and reservoirs are filling up, everything is growing like crazy.
 


The landscaping around the house is getting ahead of me.  I may have to break down and have a yard service come in to help out.  

The Ceanothus is blooming.

and the Grevillea Noellii.
 While taking the above photos, the sense of being watched just kept nicking at my back.  Turned around to find this fellow watching me from inside the fortnight lilies...


Not sure he thought I was doing the photos properly, but he never said anything.

This was a Bloodsucker drive week, and St Patrick's as well so... two birds one stone.

  1. No blooming trees here yet, but it was lovely the past two day. I've been outside trying to clear up from our snow storm that broke so many trees. Waiting for the tree guy to come and help.

  2. Spring makes everything new again. And I guess a pint after you give blood has the same effect.

  5. Gotta have that shirt! How could you pause long enough to take that picture of the snake. Yikes! I could photograph a black snake but that doesn't look like a black snake. The estate is greening up and I will slight my children's inheritance before I will give up my yard man...or my housekeeper:-)

    1. Annie, Will see if I can get my daughter to make another.
      That's a lizard, he eats bugs, he can stay.
      LOL, I've never had a yard man or a housekeeper... wouldn't know how to act if I did.
