Spring in Virginia
I love the spring! The trees start to get their initial blooms before turning green. I drove around to get pictures-- people probably wondered why I taking pictures in front of their house! (We explained.) I don't have these dogwoods or ornamental pears at my home, so I had to find others.
Isn't this gorgeous!
And this one! Stunning.
The ornamental pear trees are the prettiest in spring. And guess what-- they never have pears!
It was a good day to clean the yard. We have a little water behind our house (I showed you that before--the Feb. 28 blog) and it really needed cleaning out after a winter of a lot of wind blowing things down. I put on my high boots and got out there with a long sleeve shirt and gloves. My husband and I had a blast! (He probably disagrees.)
Max encouraged us while we worked! And he loved one area where we removed a lot because now he can see the water better there. He has the whole fence line to look out, but he chose one particular spot to be his favorite.
Scooter is checking out the newly cleared areas.
