First Spring Blooms and Rogue Goats
The weather has been very mild ranging from 72 degrees to mid 50s during the day - I love it. My daffodils and jonquils are opening up with the warm sun. Even my Lenten Roses have blooms on them. Spring is here, at least for us.
The flowers are in clumps all over the yard with many more to still come up thanks to a previous owner. While I was out trying to capture these beauties and balance myself on our hillside, a neighbor rode by on her horse for a late afternoon ride. I loved the way the sun hit her and cast a shadow on the road.
Hubby is getting ready to start our cool weather garden of lettuces and onions - we hope to have a much bigger garden and harvest this year so we will keep you posted on that project. Our neighbor's goat escaped his pasture fencing and visited our yard a few times this week munching on early volunteer lettuces and the corn I set out for the squirrels and birds. He trampled my little cart full of evergreens and corn. Hopefully he will stay out of our garden this year! Check in for more blooms and spring fun!
