Spring is Springing!

Today is a perfectly beautiful New England spring day! Our cats are lounging in the sunshine on the porch - their favorite place. When we got them from a shelter several summers ago, we made the porch their temporary home, with the screen door closed to the rest of the house. We spent a lot of time out their with them, keeping them contained while they let off some of their wild energy! After a month we brought them in, but they've always claimed the porch as their own, loving the afternoon sun.

Outside, the forsythias make a bright hedge against our neighbors' white fence, and the trees are sprouting their spring green leaves. This year, for the first time, I'm seeing some orangey blossoms among the yellows. Maybe the colors are extra bold because of the looong dreary winter!!

And when I arrived home a while ago, I was greeted by the once a year appearance of wild violets in the front lawn. I just love them.

This week I'll be buying some perennials for our front stairs and my container garden in the back yard.
Thoroughly enjoying the season!

Hope you're having a great week!

I can't believe that all of that beauty is there after all of that snow! And there was a ton of it too.

Lovely photos as always.
