After the Storm

You would never know by looking outside now that a severe storm came through here a few hours ago. Everything is so clear and green.

Winter has
put on
the pale green veil
of spring

Look at all that green grass!

You know spring is here when the pecan trees start to bud. They never get caught by a frost.

I got 2 hanging baskets of white impatiens last week. One of them is beautiful.

The other has been invaded by a nesting house wren: rather droopy, don't you think?

In the bottom right hand corner of this picture is the top of my sweet olive bush. Mom would have been proud to know that it's doing well and smelling so sweet.
