Tulips






Spring has sprung in Nova Scotia. Tulips and other spring bulbs are starting to bloom. Everywhere you look there are signs of new life...new foliage, new buds, green grass, dandelions, nesting birds, and spring blooms. It's my most favorite season of the year.

A Perfect Nesting Place

Evidence of nest making underneath the deck. We seem to have the perfect sheltered spot.





Here's the proud mother robin.


Is she responsible for all these beautiful nests? How many nests does one robin require? She is the only one I've seen at this time. Amazing.

Skeletonized Magnolia Leaves









I love the look of skeletonized leaves straight out of the garden, made au naturel. The appearance of the prominent veining is beautifully lace like. Collected in the garden during spring cleanup, I had to snap some photos before adding them to the compost pile.

Maple, Spruce,and Rain






The highlights of my garden today:).
