Finishing up with "Spring" .  .  .
April 12, 2012





My first entry for Spring 2012 on page 1 of this thread was dated March 11, 2012.  One month has passed since that day, during which time my yard completely transformed.  With April here, the process of "Spring" is just about over.  But, there are still one or two things in store for me.

The Sweet Gum tree has completely filled in during the last month.





The front of the house looks pretty decent.  It's not a finely manicured showpiece.  But, it's mine.





The only thing I can see on the horizon is a couple of blooms from a rose bush in front of the house.





I planted this a couple of years ago.  And it survived !





There will be a couple of blooms here soon .  .  .

A late bloomer .  .  .
April 21, 2012





It looks like my rose bush in front of my house is going to bloom after all.





Interesting story.  When my ex-wife and I moved to Athens in 2009, she got me two rose bushes for my birthday that year.  I planted them and waited.  In what I interpret as some kind of prophetic statement, one of the bushes died.  





Each spring, this one comes back to life.
