Don't you just love ...

Mother Nature!!  It is another beautiful day today in N.E. Ohio and after mowing & fertilizing the lawn, I took the time to walk around and enjoy the wonderful signs of Spring!  I thought I'd share a few of those photos with you!
Of course tulips & daffodils are one of the FIRST beautiful signs of spring flowers.  But I was also thrilled to see my Rhododendron also starting to bloom.
Although it's early to see my cherry tree in bloom (and I'm hoping we don't end up with a threat of LATE FROST) I can't wait to eat those sweet, sweet cherries we get every year.  The limbs are probably going to need trimmed back this year but I have been letting them go the past couple of years so I can just reach up and pick cherries without the use of a ladder!
 I just got a wonderful idea ... since I need to trim these branches anyways ... why not bring a few into the house and enjoy them!  What do you think??  We are supposed to get bad storm tonight ... maybe I'd better do that right away!!
 One last photo to share ... how about these cute little Chickadee's enjoying some yummy sunflower seeds!  I just love watching & hearing the birds!  There have been a few recently that I can't identify ... but I'll keep trying.
 Okay ... I'm headed outdoors to bring some of this beauty INDOORS!  (no ... not the birdies ... I'll leave them alone, LOL).  Hope you are having a wonderful day!!
