Sneaking outside to play
The sky is a glorious blue to the north. Right at the centre top of this photo, is a wasps nest which survived the winds and snows of this winter. The buds on the trees are starting to swell. We probably won't have leaves until May, but this is a sure sign that spring is on the way.
Sometimes it pays to look down. This pretty little round stone was sitting right by the front door. It's smooth, round and unlike any of the gravel bits on the driveway. I think it must have been dug up when the boys filled in the hole in the foundation or from when my son dug up the ancient, overgrown shrubs from the rest of the flower beds. I find it amazing that it didn't get lost in the gravel, buried in garden dirt, hidden under leaves or sent forth by a lawnmower.
