Riches in My Own “Back” Yard

Sweet Violets

If you are content with what you have, you are wealthy.

The violets are even more amazing after a week of summer-like weather. Actually today it rained but this I took the day before. Wowie.

Brian took a long bicycle ride one day this week. He said that although the back roads in the country were beautiful, it was pretty hard to beat what we have right here.

Yes, we are rich.

    Hi, Vicki. I’m glad others get the same joy from this as I do. We’ve had much more chilly weather for the last 2-3 days. The violets are huddling near the ground, but the myrtle groundcover is blooming. Same color, not as intense. They seem to need elbow space between blooms.

    I saw 2 patches of dandelions yesterday, and 3 patches of tulips. I am pretty sure I’ve never seen tulips in March before.

    We had near-frost conditions a few nights back. Our daffodils look tired from it, but so far the blooming trees have not missed a step.

    Happy spring.
