Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Come She Will

Today is April 1—no fooling. This song by Simon & Garfunkle seems appropriate.


April came green and growing here.

The oak trees have leafed out.

The redbud blossoms have given way to leaves.

The mulberry tree is so green.

So is the lawn.

Irises bloom  in several flowerbeds.

This azalea is at its peak. 

The golden delicious apple has more blooms than I've ever seen.

The cherry tree is loaded with baby cherries.

The spirea is blooming.

Lots of things blooming in this bed.

Luminaria blooms here.

Lettuce grows in the garden. . . .

. . . and in a pot.

The gazebo has sprouted a new flag.

April is here.

Spring has definitely sprung at your house! Would you like to take on another yard, one that is on a steep hill? I happen to have one available.
