Bulbs and Blossoms

The air is filled with a sweet smell of blossoms about to burst,  I wish I knew where and what plant was making such a wonderful aroma, the smell is really quite indescribable.  We have had warm 60º weather with lots of sunshine the last few days.  The grass has grown a foot in just a few days, and the maple bugs are out in full force it seems.

Our chicken coop is coming a long, we hung the doors for the chicken yard and the hen-house this weekend.  I  am crossing my fingers that we will finish the coop this coming weekend, and I will give you a chicken coop tour after then.

I hear that the back east they are having blizzards still… All I can think is how lucky I am living on the west coast (the best coast is what “they” call it).  All I know is that moving to where we are living now I have seen less fog, less clouds, less mud, more rain, more sun.  I believe moving just 11 miles away out of the valley was the best thing we have ever done.

Here are just a few pictures of the visions of Spring I am seeing, more signs have popped up after taking these.  More funny mushrooms, more blossoms, more bulbs, bugs, and birds are singing their songs to the trees.
