Springtime


Since the last picture of the outside of our house was from the middle of a snowstorm, I thought we'd show how lovely it all looks now that spring is here. Note also our snazzy new wooden door... a big improvement over the old fiberglass white door.

It's been fun to discover what annual plants the previous owners had put in the yard. The tulips are particularly nice.

And the new owners-- specifically, Daniela-- have started putting their own stamp on things too. In front of the house, on what's called the 'boulevard' around here (that is, the space between the sidewalk and the street), Daniela has planted a bunch of things, including sunflowers. We'll track their progress in the coming months!

Well, honey, you mean perennial plants that the other owners put it, but that's just a technicality....

I am very happy because all the transplants (sunflowers, scarlet flax, bachelor's buttons) are doing well and the seeds I planted in the boulevard (zinnia, safflower, calendula, cosmos) are germinating! Yay. It's going to be a very colorful boulevard.

It's going to be so colorful and pretty. What a great ide to put all that by the street.

Clare, the new addition is eager to meet you all. Rudy is very out of sorts, though.
