Spring Flowering in Shenandoah

A few days of warmth, and all of the plants are showing off. We also have a couple of brown thrashers searching for mates. I didn’t know how much they sound like mockingbirds, but the pair we have pick high spots and sing all day long.

I thought I’d share a few pics with you this beautiful morning. I won’t keep you long because a full day is ahead. My sister is in town, and we’re headed to farmers’ markets and scoping out herbs for the new herb garden (my latest project).

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Click each pic to see it larger, then click the “back” button on your browser to return.
