Moderation,elusive as a mole

The crocus are up, and so are the daffodils. Seems like Spring just came right out one day and slapped me in the head. Actually it slammed me to my knees, when I put my back out raking and weeding like a demonic fool. What is moderation, and why is our family not capable of it?

The weeping cherry should start to show its color soon.

A good day of sun and these guys will burst into buttery smiles.

The creek has deposited new sandy beaches along its banks.

The waterfalls are loud, and the depth of the pools are increasing..penny will enjoy that this summer.

Belle is very interested in the moles that have been making topographic map-like lines all around the creek bed..

Most times on a run she is neck deep in a hole, ripping up roots and digging furiously after the elusive little things. I don't know how she can smeel them, her nostrils get clogged with dirt!

I saw a forsythia in bloom on the way to Rocky Mount to the chiropractors office yesterday, and some of the Bartlett Pear trees look real close to popping. I could also see the red of the Red Bud trees, but I prefer when they turn purple!
The grass is greening up, and my little horses are getting to pasture for several hours a day now...( I am careful not to put them straight on green too fast.)I am headed North on the 3rd of April to bring Mom home...hope the weather will behave for our flight!

I've never been more excited about allergy season, lol! I know you're looking forward to your garden, Miss Claudia. It truly is a work of art.

My back is out too. I want to know how come there's no break between wood getting and weeding? But I'm not complaining. I'm not complaining!
