Nitro and I went for a stroll on our country road and took some photos of nature springing to action. After our walk I decided to head into town to buy flowers for my little corner garden outside my office window. So welcome to my "Spring Has Sprung" photo album and Happy Saturday Pet Blog hopping!
Blue Ridge Mountains. Look how blue they appear early in the morning.

On the way back from the flower market Nitro and I drove by another pond and the Canadian Geese and their goslings had moved from the field they were in, over to the pond next door. Some of the goslings were grazing and some where napping under their moma's wing (see the baby under her right wing).
snapping turtle machines. Look at the size of those feet and claws! One bite from one of these babies and off to the emergency vet we go.
I think these are so whimsical!
Here is a photo of my finished project. The new little garden consists of my old bird bath and a new flower arrangement. I had to move the bird bath from the back yard because Nitro was showing way to much interest in it and I was afraid he would jump on it and knock the top off. With my luck if that happened, the heavy cement top would probably land on one of his paws and break another bone (heaven forbid). I think this corner garden turned out very colorful. When visitors park in my driveway next to the house, the first thing they will notice is my pretty little corner garden and bird bath. I love going to yard sales in the summer and a couple of summers ago I purchased the two ceramic bunnies for my garden. This looks like a Spring has Sprung Easter Celebration.
Happy Spring! Christina, Lexi, Nitro, Bailey and Tallulah
Spring has sprung by Dave Chessher
The fresh white frost has gone away
The soft spring sun is here to stay
The sky above so bright & blue
The fresh breeze blows over me and you
The dappled daylight filters through the trees
The bushes & branches grow their leaves
The chaffinches chirping all around
The bird’s sweet song makes a wonderful sound
The fields full of soft succulent flowers
Leaping lambs running around for hours
The beautiful blossom filling the streets
The amazing smell, scented & sweet

You really do have a most lovely view down your road. Springtime is so special here in the Blue Ridge Mts.ReplyDelete
Spring flowers are the best, and the baby goslings are too cute! I really need to back off the cold medicine though because I was searching for a raccoon in the tree. ;) LOL! Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
How beautiful! You all are lucky to live in such a beautiful place.ReplyDelete
We enjoyed the photos so much.
Drools and licks,

Nitro we were up in the mountains on April Fools Day and it snowed. There were no leaves on the trees. We got what we needed from the root cellar and hurried back to the shore just as more snow started falling.
Seeing that spring is springing where you are means soon my Humans and I will be heading to the mountains again for the summer. Relatives tell us that the other day they had a bad freeze at our elevation.
Y'all come by now,

Spring is beautiful and bright where you are! It's still cold, wet, and grey here in Toronto. The only similarity is the geese... there are tons of them everywhere you go!ReplyDelete
Ah gardening & dogs, my two favourite things (ok throw in a camera and you really have my attention. Spring buds just beginning to open up here but no where near as much as your cherry trees. Beautiful photos. I especially like Nitro staring you down!ReplyDelete
Love your photos! I love the one of Nitro looking at you, and the turtle. Happy Spring!ReplyDelete
Lovely photos! Spring is my absolute favorite season of the year. I love when all the color returns.ReplyDelete
I am envious of your pretty country road...it looks like a great place for a walk. :)
