A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

I took the afternoon off to start packing for my trip. The weather is so beautiful here this afternoon...this is after seeing snow flurries on Monday morning. Today really "feels" like Spring. What a long time coming. I wandered around outside the house to see what was peeping through the ground...and I found lots and lots of weeds. My work is cut out for me come Monday morning.
This is an "upclose and personal" picture of the tree outside my front porch...the one I took a photo of a week ago. It's so nice to see leaves on the tree now.
Here's the little concrete angel "guarding" the front porch. She used to live in the rose garden...now she lives amongst the ivy.

Love the angel, Teresa....I have always had a thing for wonderful little surprises like that placed around the garden and yard.
Have a wonderful trip...and bring tales of fun adventures!!
Hugs,
Debbie

You saw snow as recently as Monday morning? That's even worse than here. Yuck. But we have no green ivy nor any green leaves and blooms. Not even forsythia!

Have fun packing...

I see you love ivy, too.
