Day trip to Lewes, Delaware

A day trip to the town of Lewes, Delaware, in the summer, revealed beautiful historic homes, treasured scenes hidden behind rustic fences, vines growing through old wagon wheels, rusty metal objects and a profusion of color.

Crocus and Helleborus

The colors of the first flowers of spring are so vibrant after seeing only lifeless branches, dormant plants or bare earth as they spend the winter underground. A single crocus and a few helleborus flowering at the moment in my garden.

Spring, finally

After a freezing cold winter, the first few hints of Spring are beginning to emerge. With tomorrow being the first official day of spring, it's not a day too soon for me. Two weeks ago we had 8 inches of snow, today we have flowers.
