Happy Spring Equinox!

We slipped into Aires @ 8:22 this AM - time to get out into the garden!! Here are a few things blooming in my yard - plus a section of the herb garden that's waiting for new plants:)

Peach in bloom - last year I got several LUSCIOUS large peaches from this tree - the blooms are so lovely!

The herb bed is thinned out (lots of lambs ears, quack grass (ugh!) & a sad old rosemary with just one branch - the little tree in the corner is one of my olives!! About 1 1/2' high! The honeysuckle rambling over the bush beside it will flood the garden with fragrance this summer. & the rue in front of the stones is growing up.

flush of Snowdrops

One of my 3 Asian Pears - these 'apple pears' are such a delightful treat - when I can wrest a few for myself - my grandkids LOVE them!!

What are your plans this lovely spring day??

Spring looks like it sprung a lot more then here. I know some people that have courus and snow drop in bloom. It was sunny all day here.

Coffee is on,
