Dorah takes a run at Buster, they are great play pals,
Daisy hides behind the stump.

Looks like spring has definitely sprung. The white cat in the last pic looks like he is pretending to be a squirrel. Made me laugh.

Your photos are wonderful! Always nice to visit to see what delights you have to share with us. Thank you and have a great weekend.

I still can’t believe
that you had a bear...
that must have given
you all quite a scare!

trillium, lilium
and daffy-down-dillies
Daisy climbing down the tree
gives Auntie Kay the willies.

violets, chestnuts,
Buster and Dorah — oh,
Daisy only climbed the tree
to see a white-throat sparrow.

I adore reading your comments, thank you all, but only Kay L. write a poem! She's quite a lady!

Kay said...

Love your photos. I don't think I've ever seen a maroon trillium. They're usually white. Love Kay's poem! What fun!

So many beautiful spring flowers!!! I am going to have to check out the horse chestnuts, when I can walk that far...
