Ahead of Schedule

Such a soft, gentle
awakening to the day,
in light of being awakened
by two owls conversing
at 4:00 a.m.
I'm not complaining, I do love to listen
to them.
I just wish they had arrived a little later so
I could have seen them!







Spring is springing.


The Rhododendron is usually blooming
for Mother's Day.


Very early yet so appreciated.

Good MOrning JIll. I know what you mean about being woken up by some creature. Mine just happened to have been my husband. I am not complaining, just saying.
YOur pictures are nice. The first 2 pictures look like there is a brush fire. Gorgeous. There is a full moon outside it is so huge and beautiful.

Owls always seem to like to converse in the dark when we can't see them. I too like to hear them.

Our peonies will also be about a month early this year.

We are supposed to get frost or a freeze this week -- I'm afraid everything will be nipped and ruined. Hopefully, this will not happen (fingers crossed.)

Beautiful blooms, Jill. :)
