March: In and Out

March came in like a bossy lion who decided it would be OK to stick around for the rest of the month. That overbearing dictator plied us with never-ending bouts of wind and rain.....I'm sure scaring whatever lamb that was supposed to show up somewhere far south of here. There are flood watches in the lowlands, avalanche warnings in the mountains and fallen branches scattered all over the place. 

Throughout the gusts and pounding downpours however, blossoms have managed to stay put at the end of skinny tree limbs and my daffodils still stand upright. I'm thinking that lamb is actually out there disguised in the pops of color and new growth showing up against the gray and the wet. The light isn't bad for taking pictures. The rhubarb is up in my garden (although the picture is of my friend's rhubarb). The boys are in and out for their spring breaks. I'm pretty sure the weather will eventually calm down, but for now it's fine for baking and catching up and spending time with them. Yep....it's out there.

















Wishing you a peaceful weekend.

Warmly, Margaret

Beautiful! Most especially, that rhubarb....

Still wet and chilly here, but I'm hoping that will change soon. At least we have color in our trees and flowers.

Happy Friday; Happy April. xo

I got home from the store last night after a long 11 hour day. Exhausted, feet hurting... so I sat down and checked your site and found myself relaxing into your photos. Your descriptive writing takes me in. Thank you for topping my day off Margaret!.......Maureen
