I just thought I'd post a few pics of what's going on at our place....outdoors-wise. I've always wanted to make sure and capture these moments on film because it changes so much in summer. Our backyard is pretty much an English shade garden so its peak is now. It's all very beautiful & miraculous to see the awakening from winter. These are pics of a flowering crab apple tree (pink) in the front yard, a lilac bush (purple) in the backyard, and violets that are springing up everywhere (we have to manage these!!).
