The overgrown crabapple is now blooming in the back of the house. The serviceberries or juneberries are also in bloom - native small trees or large shrubs with fruit like slightly bland blueberries in June. A few late daffodils hang on. Lawn furniture, grill, tarps, tools, and other odds and ends are in a great tangle on the terrace, as we need to park the car in the garage for a while, and of course the garage was full of other things. I expect it will rain on everything tomorrow and make a merry mess. Spring.


A merry mess indeed! I love the alliteration of the tangle on the terrace. And the drawing is beautiful too!

Hi Liz, I'm expanding my blog ... Would it be okay to add a link to your site on my artblog? I'm adding my comment here because you know me, the plant lover. I imagine your house surrounded by very pretty blossoms.

Thanks, Joan - I'd be honored!
