Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) after the rain on Sunday. The colors were so rich.
“The Japanese word “momiji” is sometimes applied to this tree in its native land. The word is said to have two meanings, both of them appropriate for the description of this wonderful tree: “baby’s hands” and “becomes crimson leaves.” Arbor Day Foundation website
T-Ball Season has begun
Everybody gets a turn at bat. Everyone gets on base. Everyone on the team rotates to play all of the positions. I love T-ball.
Here’s Charlie hitting the ball. The lens focused on the fence in this shot. I liked how the ball was caught in the chain link frame.
Inniswood Metro Garden is in Westerville Ohio.
It was a beautiful Spring day to explore the park with Laura and Charlie.
Two sisters, Grace and Mary Innis, donated their 37 acre estate and there’s a Sisters’ Garden dedicated to their memory. Either the treehouse or the brick walled Secret Garden might have been Charlie’s favorite place to play.
Eastern Redbud in bloom at sunset. Planted in my backyard by a friend, as a memorial to my parents.
It was their favorite tree. The blossoms cover the whole of the branches.
April first it snowed. There’s been sunshine, rain, blue skies, and fog. It’s been hot, it’s been cold. Windy and still. We’re only two weeks into April. Only thing constant in our weather is change.
