Norman wants to know, “Is that you, Friday?” Welcome to the last Friday of the month, Norman. What a month this one has been. Apart from our city and now state being fully shut down, the Ranch experienced a typical spring snowstorm last week. The dogs took a vote and have their paws crossed today’s forecast is not a repeat performance. The weatherman has assured them it won’t be (maybe an inch or two with rain), but Norman said he’s not walking in that wet dripping stuff no matter how many treats are in the magic pocket. Whatever happens today weatherwise, it won’t stop us from joining our fur-iends and hosts, Rosy and her brothers from LLB in our Backyard as we share a few looks around to see what nature offers.
For the most part, my garden is assorted shades of brown with tiny pops of color here and there. Last week’s 6-8 inches of white stuff was just the catalyst to give the garden a nice drink of water. Which means, the easiest ‘perennial’ to grow immediately, flowered. *Sigh*
Around the Mile High, social distancing is the rule (though far too many are ignoring it-what is wrong with people?) but I noticed a few flower beds are complying with the latest mandate like these daffodils and crocuses. For the most part still, yellow was the color of the day as shown in these images taken yesterday afternoon, with far more daffodils than anything else.
Our afternoon walk did offer one pretty blast of pink at one of my favorite front gardens with this blooming Pasque Flower which started blooming a couple of days after the snow melted. It’s still a beauty even though it’s about finished.
And because it’s my favorite color, how bout a tiny shot of blue from our front garden and one of the few things blooming in my garden?
Ok, Norman, are you ready to go on your morning constitution now?
Whatever you do this weekend, we hope you religiously practicing social distancing and washing your hands frequently. Here’s to a beautiful weekend.
Live, love, bark! 🐾
