springing









There have been some spring-like days lately (or at least moments) amongst the rainy, grey ones. Any time there is a little bit of sun peeking out from the clouds, we all head outside to enjoy it. 

The crocuses and snowdrops are popping up in the yard and so many shoots are sprouting out of the ground. I can't wait until they all start to flower. We planted some bulbs in the fall, but many of them were already here when we moved in and I can't wait to see what they will be. It's hard to keep U from picking all of the flowers, but I am trying to teach him to appreciate them in the ground (and let him pick a certain amount to do whatever he pleases with).  He wanted to make a flower crown the other day, and this is what he came up with. He found an old plastic flower pot from the nursery and filled the holes with our new crocuses and a few snowdrops, too. Very fetching indeed. 

He has been spending a lot of time in this tree lately, he now calls it "his tree" and he can climb it all by himself. He has been trying to climb our big apple tree, but he is not quite tall enough and I can't quite lift him up there (although J did lift him up there one day when I was up there trying to prune). But this little pear tree is just his size and a nice place for him to climb and enjoy some time to himself.
