A walk outside

Still very wet from the rain a couple days ago.  But so nice to be out in the warmth of the sunshine.
The daffodils are not as pretty this year, not as many blooms I should say.  Could be more I guess coming.
Steve raked up more leaves especially around the house to keep things dry.

You can see the reflection in the water of the trees and sky
Many buds on the dogwoods

 

The sunset yesterday.   I watched it as I sit on the front steps of my house,  so pretty is the pink and orange glow.

Afterwards I came inside and got out my mugs I bought in Maine a few years ago.   I like these mugs with the lobster handles,  I thought they were cute.  Can't see the handles to well.

I purchased these pots locally, the small was $10 and the two larger ones were $15.  I thought they were priced decent for the size and they are cement pots.

  1. How nice to see that Spring is happening somewhere. Your photos are beautiful. The mugs are very cute and your plant pots are great! And the prices seem very reasonable.
    Hugs, Cindy

  3. Hi Betsy! We're still waiting for daffodils and buds on the trees here in New England. Your photos give me hope that it won't be long! Loved the picture of the reflection in the water. Thanks so much for visiting! Have a wonderful Sunday!... Donna
