Back in my own nest...

... after having spent the past week in my parents "Hen House." It is always good to be with them. And it was good to see some beautiful things blooming in their front yard, and everywhere! And to see the water and ocean-ish things. And the beautiful scenery between here and there.

But it is good to get home, too. To my sweet husband and pets. To the things that have gone un-attended to for the past week, but that have survived quite well anyway (which is also good to see and know). And I actually see some things poking out of the ground where there was only snow when I left. Spring may come, even to Colorado!

All I can say is, "Woo-hoo! I'm baaa-ack!"

Hi Kathy,

Welcome back! Are those quince flowers in the bottom picture? I thought of you the other day when I read an article about forcing quince blooms like you would forsythia blooms. Let me know if you try it.

No, those are camellias. The bush in front of Gma & Gpa's house is loaded with them. And the air there smells SO sweet! My quince is still in winter mode. Maybe I'll prune a branch and bring it in and see what it does!
