Blossom by blossom

This is the view from my front window this week.

Trees are beginning to fill in and the winter burned grass is giving way to a lush green carpet. 

Deer  gather off in the distance at dusk and graze.

Sometimes they like to graze over there.

And sometimes they like to graze in my back yard.

Like on my fresh sweet hostas that have finally made an appearance.

And now they have made a disappearance because I forgot to treat them with Deer Off! 

The other night the deer grazed away on all my hostas.  Right down to their small beginnings.  I didn't even bother to provide you a picture because there would be no greenery for you to see.

So sad.

But I went right out and bought some Deer Off! for the season.  If I'm not fighting off the squirrels, I'm fighting off the deer.  But I wouldn't have it any other way.  I love the animals.

This lovely purple burst is the first thing I see these mornings when I raise my bedroom shades.

This is such a beautiful time.

Blossom by blossom, spring begins.
