They survived the light frost and continue to cheer our brick walkway to our backdoor.

Every year I’m amazed by the beginnings of our giant hosta.

The “Canadian” tulip (so dubbed by myself) has a special place in my heart.

Ahhhh…the lilacs are back. They are not as plentiful as last year, but their scent still delights me as I hang up my laundry right next to them.

The cherry tree behind our shed never looks so good as it does in Spring.

Josh built a twig lattice for our snow peas to climb. They are taking off!

And my favorite person, pruning the tree. I’m hoping that the tree won’t look so awkward and gangly as it matures.  Perhaps it is in its teenage years and still need to fill out?
