This blog is about what road I'm on and my journey in getting there. Maybe with a little work, I'll end up in paradise.



Sugar Sap

Sugar Sap

I saw this sap bursting from a sugar maple while working in the yard. I thought this was one of mother natures beautiful moments. When I put the photo in the computer I saw the tiny little “thing” on the left of the photo. I have sent the photo to a lab to see if we can figure out what it is.

I love these macro photos because just when you think mother nature has given you something special, she hides something else to see if you’ll notice.


Mother Nature’s Canvas

Mother Nature's Canvas

First there was the rain, then the freezing temperatures. Then there was a car, which was parked in a parking lot for about a month. Mother nature decided to share her work of art with all that visited the grocery store. Another showing of the tenderness, and the power, of nature.

As the sun was setting in my back yard, I noticed it shining through the thickness of all the trees.

I have this Shasta Viburnum in my yard that is relentless. It’s so beautiful around this time of year. The plant must be 8 feet high and just as much wide.

Spring is here, it’s time to get out the rake!

 Spring is here.  The nice weather is creeping up on us, and today I finally got out the rake and started raking the yard.  Raking my yard may take a while, but I’m determined to get all that old grass up and let the new grass take over.  I’ll be working my garden soon, I can’t wait to get outside and breath, it will feel so good to breath away that winter air that is stagnent in my lungs.

Eight more weeks and I’ll be free enough for a little while to sleep in if I want, to work in the yard if I want, and to enjoy some quiet time.  After a little rest, I’ll be out looking for more work, but I’ll worry about that later.  For now, I’m getting through these weeks peacefully. 

Happy, Happy Spring!

This winter seemed so long.  I’m so glad spring is here!
