After that long, frigid winter, I think now we can officially say spring is here in all her glory. Pink blooms peeking through a white picket fence is cute!!
Some of our hardwood trees were hesitant to participate, afraid they'd get knocked back by one last freezing night. Even they are now convinced. The azaleas are happy!
We have the best across-the-street neighbor. She's a True Yard Lady, which means we always have something nice to look at. Her little home exudes cuteness and tidiness. She recently painted those shutters yellow, just in time for spring.
I know you can't tell, but this sycamore tree down the road is such a beautiful specimen! It's mottled white trunk shines, its crinkly branches in sharp relief against the pellucid sky, and now its leaves a glimmer of lime green.
Adam and I went for a stroll yesterday evening. It was his birthday, a rather low-key birthday. He hasn't been sleeping well with his leg in a brace, and he's just plain tired. He's used to sleeping very well every night (a phenomenon I can't even begin to wish for!), so this is difficult for him.
We passed the local sea monster. Oh ... didn't I mention that we have sea monsters in our yards?
Down at the Wildlife Ramp, a young man on a sunfish was just coming in.
He loaded his sunfish onto a little trailer all by himself and proceeded to haul it down the street to wherever his vehicle is parked. In Oriental, it's not unusual to see a person pulling a boat down the street.
We enjoyed sunset on the water.
I'll end with this tiny car. It's not a Thing (a funky car from my teen years). It's not a golf cart, I don't think. Don't know what it is ... but it's cuteness!
And its owners know the right spirit for such a car, in such a boat yard, in such a fun-loving town.
