A Spring Morning Around the House - April 18, 2002
At last Spring is really coming to the Ranch. Even though there have been a
few frosts lately the leaves are slowly starting to show some signs of
beautiful spring morning. Here's a look off my kitchen porch....
out towards the meadow.
you can see the white blooms on some Service trees (pronounced Sarvis by
mountaineers). The trees are native and are the earliest to bloom. They'll have
small blueberry like fruit. The berries are quite tasty if you can harvest
them. The red blooms are the maples that are starting to flower....

As I turn around to go back in side I figured I would take a few shots (in
the daytime!) of the house since I had the camera out. I haven't put any
pictures of the house on the web in a while, and when I have they usually are
in the winter and after dark! So here is what the house looks like on a spring
living room from the kitchen doors.
and Sugar are out on the front porch. When we get up in the morning they want
to go out and use the bathroom, then they want out on the front porch. From
there they can sleep, play, and watch everything going on around the house.
They pretty much stay out there all day.

think I've put many pictures of my downstairs bedroom on the web. Mostly
because it's pretty empty at the moment! I only have a couple of things here.
Just an antique chest of drawers...
the downstairs bathroom. This is the shower and tub...

can see Sugar out grooming herself.
lastly, my office. Now to quite taking pictures and get down to work. Although
it is hard to work on springs days like this!
