From My Piece of Earth

Happy Earth Day! It is a windy but sunny day in Kentucky. Here is what is blooming on my piece of earth today! My dogwood tree survived the winter - I heart dogwood trees!

And is there any smell more heavenly than lilacs? I don't think so!


Our weeping cherry has a few blooms too!

And look what we have here! I see three, but there may be one more - I was risking my life on a bouncy porch chair to get this picture before Mama came back!

Love the earth!

What beautiful pictures!! There is absolutely nothing on the earth that smells as divine as lilacs. I love them.
How exciting, that little nest on your door. Can't wait to see the babies, just be careful!

You have Lilacs! How I long for the smell of a big container of Lilacs on the kitchen table : )

Momma is going to have some babies! So fun! What kind of bird is it again?

Laura said...

I think it is a robin - at least that is what I see hanging around the front yard!

Oh look at those little eggs just waiting to hatch on your front door decor! I hope you are planning to stop using the front door altogether to give the babies plenty of space. Maybe you and Ted can crawl in and out through a window from now on. I can hardly wait to see what all you do to your living space outdoors, Laura, it is going to be wonderful!
