Signs of Spring

I walked around my yard today and there were signs of spring everywhere. Nature does a wonderful job of decorating our surroundings.

The moss between the flagstones in my patio is even growing. I don't know why, but, I love moss, especially growing in cracks and crevices. A couple of seasons ago I dug up some moss on the side of the house and mixed it up in a blender with some water. (I found the directions online). I then proceeded to "paint" the open areas between the flagstones with the concoction. With all the wet weather we've had my moss is thriving!

Bud on the Magnolia

This pot sat out all winter. I don't know how the bulbs survived the snow. Hopefully, I'll have some tulips in a few weeks.

The Clematis vine is starting to grow.


  1. Connie, I love moss too. My nice Dina, when she was little, gathered up a bunch of moss and put it in a little red wagon. Then she set some stones around and it was a piece of art! It was beautiful! Love the photos.

  2. I like to look at it and I like to feel it. It looks so much better between patio pavers than concrete.
