“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


Last year's springtime

Mary's side yard - 2008

It's where I found the Easter egg bush this weekend,
tucked up under the birdhouse.

This year there is almost no wisteria.
At least not yet.
I'm sure it's coming soon.
and we will hide Easter eggs beneath it & in it


  1. A lovely photo lush with blues and purples. At least on my monitor! I wonder if there are birds up in that bird house?

  2. I'm thinking it's not quite that blue in real life. But close. :)

  3. it looks like a secret garden...

    so tranquil and mysterious. beautiful as always.

  4. your posts always makes me feel like that photo - all dreamy and full of secret corners, cool restfulnesses and new magical life.

  5. What a beautiful photo Debi. Spring...the promise of hope...may you enjoy all of its gifts...
