Sunday Evening Post

My weekend in pictures:

First up - grape hyacinths growing in my backyard - at least until the next time I mow:


These are growing in my side yard and in this picture the setting sun is shining through them:


Violets of various hues in my front yard:


Paperwhite narcissus in my backyard being watched over by my young dog:


My old dog saw me taking pictures of flowers and came over to the fence to see what I was doing:


Buttercups:


Today we went walkies and my young dog sat down in a field of tiny flowers:


There were cherry blossoms on the walk:


There was a sunset:


The end.

That was way too cool. National treasure.

It's coming here.

Just not fast enough.

If you were referring to the Mingus, well, for a minute he was deleted and replaced with something a bit closer to home, but he is back. That truly is an awesome piece and I was concerned that I had posted it too many times.

Spring arrives on its own terms - heck, we are expecting a hard freeze here this evening, so it kind of comes and goes of its own accord.

Spring

Piece by piece they pose a puzzle
Which is not a puzzle at all.
Random bursts of flowers befuddle?
Let their mystery enthrall.

Spring is sprung. Too cool brother.

Thanks for bringing a breath of spring to us Yankees. It's still pretty cold up here.

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough

Yeah, that was Mingus I meant was cool. The other is bitchin'.

Such good dogs. Old dog wants to sit on a 🌺, too.

windbag, I posted the Mingus before - it really is a remarkable piece. I posted the other for reasons that those who know will know. That young woman playing baritone then alto sax has a lot of talent and she reminds me of her father.

Thanks for all the responses - the threat of a hard freeze did not materialize here - it is 36 currently, and while that is not warm, perhaps we have turned a corner on below-freezing weather. I sure hope so. Spring can keep right on proceeding - I have things to do outside and I prefer warm weather in which to do them.

Now the sun is rising, the old dog is wandering around in the yard, a great sunrise is happening and by golly, I am good with all of that.
