There have been some signs of spring this past week. I love being home at this time of year so I can enjoy all these subtle changes.
The weeping cherry has also flowered. It hasn’t looked in the best of health since the old house burned down -but it came back this year, so we continue to enjoy its beauty.
And of course, the violas/johnny jump-ups/pansies are always heartening. Not sure which these are… I think they are too big for johnny jump ups and too small for pansies.. so maybe these are violas? I suspect they are all part of the same family – so maybe it doesn’t matter. All I know is, they certainly are cheerful.
