but looks like this in July.
The picture below might not look like much to most of you, but seeing some grass appear between the snowbanks and the asphalt is a welcome sight for us. Pathetic, I know.
A big oak tree in our yard had to be cut down yesterday. It's been doing poorly for a couple of years now and it was time for it go.
P3 sitting on the stump. Not sure what he was thinking about. He was sad about the loss of the tree, but happy to be outside without a jacket.
We could hear the robins singing in the tree tops and finally P3 spotted the one below. It was our first of the year. He was excited about seeing it and was immediately transformed into a bird watcher.
When he asked if I'd bring the bird identification book outside so he could read it, it made me fall in love with him all over again.
A good way to end the afternoon. A boy having fun playing in the snow with his shadow.
Thanks again to Carol for introducing me to Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. Can't wait until my posts are filled with colorful blooms. Off to see/read what everyone else posted today.
