The cherry blossom petals are blowing onto the pond, collecting like snow along its banks.

Tulips still dazzle. They last longer if you plant them in part shade. It also helps if you have gentle springs, not too hot, not too cold.

  1. My grandfather had chickens like that; my nephew in Colorado has built a lovely coop and has his “ladies” in fine chicken world style; We eat a lot of chicken ….I am always sorry that I know the Perdue and other big name factory chickens did not get to live this kind of life. The photography is wondrous. Took me right back to the farm.
