Happy Mother's Day!

Espalier in spring

I took the camera for a walk around the house on Friday night to see what we could see.  The espalier crabapple is looking pretty darn good.  I was pretty neglectful last year, but it doesn't seem to have suffered.  Hoping for a blossom or two -- it's on the north side of the house, so is usually quite late with the flowers.

Creeping phlox

We lost all but a tiny bit of a patch of creeping phlox on the garage side of the stone steps; it's just starting to bloom on the other side -- always a favorite.

Sowbug

I found a sowbug -- or something -- on the front walk.  Hm?  Closer??

Sowbug

(The macro les was on the camera!)  Okay.  I'll end with something pretty.

Purple bells

I had a pretty relaxing day yesterday and plans for another today.  We went to see the Star Trek movie last night and I enjoyed it a lot.  I don't think I've been to a movie since Doubt at Christmas time.

Happy Mother's Day!
