A bit of this, a bit of that...
I am at the door this afternoon, camera in hand, and I call to the man in the back room "I am just going out to take some pictures while the sun is shining".
Down the stairs and six steps along through the garden, and the sun disappears behind a cloud - wispy in spots, but not where the sun is now!
Three days left in March, and recalling the lamb-like way the month entered it is quite apparent March is calling up its most lion like demeanor to make a roaring exit.
Neverthless, it has been rather a sweet month and spring has taken advantage of this and established residence, at least for a time.
Eventually the cloud that hid the sun drifted off and I was able to snap the apricot blossoms and the spring-clad trees, as well as a few pictures of Life in the Garden.

The Hellebores prepare to say goodbye while the Perennial Alyssum can hardly wait to burst into bloom.
As I was coming home from church this morning Sid and Sharon and the two dogs and their dear grandson, Corbin, were out chasing the wind around, throwing a bright red ball which Corbin and the dogs retrieved enthusiastically - the dogs had the advantage, but I think Corbin had the most fun.
Or maybe Grandma and Grandpa did????
I get to play the organ on Easter Sunday (and on Good Friday too) and I have been vacillating between practicing sombre music and joyous preludes.
I found a wonderful version of 'Morning has Broken' in the stacks of old music and thought it might make a nice Postlude change from the Messiah Hallelujahs.
And considering This and That, I am really pleased that Blogger has made new templates available, and love the one I have chosen. For now, anyway. There is a nice varied choice and I am finding it easy to manipulate images - check it out.
If (when) Charles continues with his blog of early days I will treat him to a look see and update
'From the Back Pasture'.
