On Saturday, the Boise area was blessed with sunshine and 50 degree weather. The snow in my front yard is gone. Yea! The shadier backyard still has some, but its days are numbered, I think.
At the end of the year, a guy came through my subdivision with a truck bed full of moss-covered rocks. He offered me a good deal, and since I had just finished paying my credit card bills that included my Christmas charges (and discovered that I came in under budget), I bought some of them. He put the larger ones in place with a crane. It really dressed up my front garden area. Soon after, they were buried in snow. Now they are in view again.
Then last month, I ordered a couple of garden statues from Costco.com. One is of two children reading a book on a bench. The other is a fairy on her belly reading a book. The fairy will probably take up residence in my backyard (until the thaw, she was in front of my fireplace and now she is on the patio). The two kids, as of sunny yesterday, are in my front garden, near one of those moss-covered rocks. So I had to share some photos. Aren’t they cute? (You can click on them for larger pictures.)
Hurry, spring. I’m so ready for you.
