I tried to take pictures of the recent Pink Moon. Last year it actually looked pink to me. This year, not so much. This picture was taken at about two in the
Here are some pictures of the hyacinths that I forgot to plant until January. I think they are really pretty. I wish I would have planted more hyacinth bulbs. I will be sure to this coming fall.
This blue hyacinth is my favorite.
I bought a pot of violas. They make me happy just to look at them. Each little flower has such a detailed face. The yellow ones look like they have eyelashes painted on. They look almost magical to me.
Here is a picture of some of my pansies. The only picture of my pansies that wasn't blurry had an extra little surprise. See that little bug lurking on the yellow pansy!
For one more sure sign of Spring, here is my grandson flying a kite for the first time. He was laughing and excited when the kite finally stayed up in the air as he was running. That's the big colorful kite at the top of the picture. The picture quality isn't great because it was taken from a video that we took of him kite flying. He was moving so fast that it was even hard to keep him in frame in the video. The middle of the picture is blurred on purpose, as I was trying to insure a little privacy for our neighbor's home.
