Raising and Releasing Butterflies

Some butterflies emerge and are ready to fly...

others need a little more time, 
I am always available for whatever they need.
Yesterday, I released 2...
it is quite heartwarming and satisfying to see them fly off.
I had 52 chrysalis at the start of spring, I have released 16 so far.

I have lots baby bunnies hopping around the yard.
It is impossible to get a good picture, they are always moving and playing with each other.
I am sharing this terrible picture as I feel I will never get a good one before they are grown.

The weather was beautiful last evening so we went to 
Shore Fresh
for dinner and we were able to eat at an outside table.
 The fried shrimp are large, fresh, lightly breaded and delicious. 
The french fries are fresh cut.

I went for my first bike ride of the season a few evenings ago, on my
Bluebird of Happiness
all went well, no falls, life is good!

Spring Scents...

 The house is filled with the scent of spring...
Lilacs


Little vases like these are sprinkled all about the house.

These came from my Jose Lilac Bush
When you walk past the bush outdoors or any of these little vases,
 the scent is overwhelming.

The Kwanzan Cherry Trees were exceptionally pretty this year.
I took so many pictures while they were in bloom.
I'm happy I did as they are fading now.




Hasn't spring been lovely?

We went to an outdoor craft festival this past weekend.
I can't tell you how good it felt to be outdoors, walking around
and listening to great music.
These guys are regulars at this festival every year in Ocean Grove.




If everyone started the day off singing ~ just think how happy they'd be!
