Here are my images from April 29-May 5. The weather finally started to warm up, so this week had a lot of outdoorsy photos. I also got to spend the entire weekend nesting at home and not working (for once). Enjoy!
Blue Bells in the yard at home . . .
and Blue Bells in the 17th century garden at work.
Lunch in the North Courtyard!
The copper beech tree.
Lovely bleeding hearts heralding spring (with a little bit of dead leafed fall below there).
Unfurling . . .
One of my pretty historic houses in the afternoon sunlight.
Sharing my Saturday morning porch bench with a Beorn.
Hammock & cocktails on a Saturday evening - welcome, spring!
Sunlight in an open window and a puppy lounging on the lawn. This is what we wait all winter for.
The patio might not be quite ready, but this outdoor couch hotness is!
Here are my photos from April 15-21. I didn't take many on Monday and Tuesday, as I was in tears a lot from the sorrow & heartache of the Boston Marathon bombings. Looking at the week of pictures, though, reminds me of all the little good things that make up daily life. Those quotidian things - family, pets, green things - comforted me and others through this week and will continue to provide comfort to us in the days ahead.
Snuggly puppies in the morning.
My new desk at work.
The kids at my final school vacation workshop built and planted this in less than an hour. Go them!
Going to miss this.
In other news, panels for traveling exhibit delivered Friday; unpacked Saturday.
Loving the sun on the porch. She's a hothouse flower.
My late grandmother's Christmas cactus, blooming away in a sunny window. After a week like this, it's the little things.
