And the next it was gone! So when the ground firmed up and the weather moderated by the following Friday, I took a springtime stroll around the lawn to see what and where the signs of the season may be. Look! There's one now! A tiny flower peeking out from behind the brown blades of grass:
Maybe the hawks spied it too.
A pecan that the squirrels missed, camouflaged there with the leaves and twigs.
Uh-oh, better paint the house. It's chipping.
A brown spot in the grass? Note, get grass seed.
Holy Solenopsis invicta, Batman! That's no bare spot! It's a fire ant farm!
First robin, looking pretty satisfied with himself, if you ask me!
Decorative rocks by my front door. Soon they will be covered with pots growing morning glories and lavender.
