Welcome Spring! you and to Spring!

Yes! Spring is popping out all over my yard! That means there is major work to be done!! Speaking of which, my son just got here, he's been laid off from his work (he just got his building contracting license last month) for a week so he's going to help us out by doing some of the yardwork and clean out the gutters (bless his heart, I think I'll sneak and get a picture or two of him working - I'm sure he'll be thrilled about that one!!)

Here are a couple of pictures I took this morning. It's an overcast day, I'm waiting for the sun to spring out some of that warmth we had for the last two days.

This first picture is of our flowering plum tree. You can barely see the pink buds but by next week this will be covered with darker pink buds then it will turn to light pink blossoms, it is gorgeous. So my plan is to do a weekly or perhaps daily journal and share with you all the beauty of this spring season here in northern California! Since yesterday there have already been changes!!

This is the wisteria that surrounds my back porch. There will be purple and white flowers and it is beautiful. Can't wait for another month before it's in full bloom. The thermometer says 50 degrees out. Brrr still a bit too cold to sit on the back porch with my coffee.

Well, that's all for now. I hear the lawn mower (my son, Sean!) in the front yard doing his thing! I'd best get my self dressed and sneak out there with my camera!

Have a super blessed day!


Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men the Lord is at hand. Philipians 4;4-5 (my scripture to memorize )


  1. Happy Spring to you, too. I love that scripture passage.

  2. Spring is such a beautiful and hopeful time of the year, isn't it? I'm originally from Northern Calif., so I know just the blooms you are talking about. My mother has been filling me in on what's about to start blooming in her yard. We've already had the pear trees blossom here in NC, although it's still been on and off again very cold.
