Project 365/123

This is what I've been busy doing.

And this.

Packing to move, and skin cancer surgery.
It's been quite a month.

Project 365/122

Mother Goose has been busier than I first realized!
Maybe the third adult really was her mother-in-law
come to help with all those babies. :)

Project 365/121

We have goslings!
They're hard to see, but there are two little black
and yellow fuzzballs pecking at the ground while
their parents stand guard at the water's edge.

Project 365/120

Super moon rising.
The trees in our backyard are so tall,
it's going to be a while before the moon
rises above them for a clearer shot,
and I might be asleep by then. :)

Project 365/119

It's too early to set flowers outside yet,
but I'll gladly enjoy these beauties inside for a while longer.

Project 365/118

Back at the beginning of February, I put this sewing table (sans sewing machine) in the corner of the living room where the Christmas tree had stood for 2 glorious months.

At that time, I placed a small Swedish ivy plant nestled in a large pot on the table, but it looked so skimpy that I added another smaller pot of Swedish ivy. I was delighted with the lushness of the two plants just six weeks later as they soaked in some (freakishly) early spring sunshine.

I'm now convinced the plant in the original large pot is some kind of mutant vegetation, as evidenced in the picture above, taken a mere five weeks later. I had to remove the smaller pot as the larger plant grew exponentially, and now it's about to take over the entire table. This, in spite of the fact that our (freakishly) early spring sunshine vanished after just a few days and we've been back in the doldrums of a (sadly) normal Maine spring ever since.

After I do some pruning I'll have an abundance of Swedish ivy rootings if anyone is interested. :)

Project 365/117

My May Day was spent sitting in front of this.

With these people.

Not exactly spring-like, but I would take a cozy fire
and creamed chipped beef with homemade waffles
over spring any day of the week. :)
