A New Spring View – River of Green

It’s been 2 years since the hurricane came through and took down the big tree at the same time we cleared some of the trees along the side of the house  they were beginning to become threatening and we became proactive. There was a small spill water stream beside the house and now that the sun  no longer hindered by the trees and wild grape vines can get through a new view of ferns and smaller plants has changed the stream into a river of green. I know these pictures don’t do the view justice but it is in my mind and next year it will be another view as nature takes over.

Spring brings a new kind of depth to the woods in the back

Every year Lyn and I say next year it will just be a small deck garden and by Mid June there is not a empty space on the railing.

Let the gardening begin.

The herbs are coming up in the yard garden and the grape tomatoes like thier new home.  They say there might be a frost on Tuesday so I will cover those up.

Yes, I like this time of year.
