Oh yes, it's getting sweet out there...
All the b's have joined together to form their lovely spring dance.
Birds, Butterflies, bees and blooms!
Last week was pretty but after some rain and now increase in sun...
Well, it's a full blown explosion.
I get inspired by spring.
I don't know if I want to paint or garden or play in the gypsy wagon.
Part of me just wants to lay in the garden chaise and feel the sun.
This morning on a walk, 3 butterflies were in this flutter ball and crashed through my hair.
I literally let out a bliss sigh.
It was so magical.
I jump out of bed in the morning to see what new is going on out there.
I love seeing fresh green crawling around.
It's so exciting.
The bees are going bonkers.
Between all the fruit tree blossoms and aloes blooming, they also have arugula flowers to hunt through.
Bees, love them so.
The aloes are like flames popping open.
Matty and I visit with the 2 horses and tiny donkey looking over the wall into our garden.
Groups of yellow belly finches eat weed flower seeds like mad little eaters.
Feverishly as can be.
As others do their jobs.
The ground is covered with purple flowers, so tiny you have to get on your knees to see them.
But the bees found them.
Clever little guys.
Gives me chills of joy.
The glorious scent.
The entire garden path lined with wild chamomile.
It can't get better.
I am a happy camper.
Guess what I found???
A conjoined sextuplet wild chamomile flower!!
I thought it was a caterpillar at first.
Isn't it special?
The sweet days of early spring are upon us in the high desert.
Sweet things all around.
And one of my fave sweet things.
Opening a fresh box of sugar cubes.
Time to sip tea, and watch nature do its thing.
There were lots of hummingbirds, cardinals and vermillion fly catchers out.
But they were too quick for me & my camera.
It was a great week.
I escaped into town.
I stood in the scent of orange trees blooming in an outdoor mall.
I snuck into Anthropologie.
I went out for lunches and tea.
Great busy little week.
Lots of runs on my garden path, through all the spring happenings.
Such beautiful days to absorb and enjoy.
What's happening in your neck of the woods?
