Welcome May!

Red Trillium

April colors have been inspiring to many of us!! Thanks to everyone who participated in the Colors of April challenge!


And of course, May is also beautiful and colorful. I'll be back mid-month to post the May challenge. Feel free to start taking photos now!!!

Beech leaves - is there a more beautiful green anywhere?

I'm blogging from my porch. Gotta love that!!! It's warm out and by some miracle the bugs haven't found their way here yet, so we don't even need screens!!! That will change very soon I am sure. Meanwhile, I totally love this early spring that we've been treated to this year!

Blogging from the front porch is so lovely and NO BUGS makes it even nicer. We live in Cincinnati now, but also owned a home in Norway for awhile. When I first went there I was pleased to find no screens when it was warm enough to open the windows because it go too cold for the bugs to survive through the winter and come back the next Spring.

The early spring greens in your images are beautiful. :)

Very best,

It's a rainy, stormy morning here in southeastern PA and I was happy to look at all the beautiful spring photos, so uplifting and a joy to look at. Thank you, Sue, and thank you to all the bloggers who contributed!

Like always the pictures are just beautiful. I sure wish it would get warm and stay warm here. We have warm weather one day and then the next day it snows, you just gotta love Utah!
