Seems like everything grew up overnight here on our Mountain. We got to enjoy a nice little hike Friday afternoon and enjoy our Earth for Earth Day!

The Common Sweetshrub is growing and blooming everywhere!

Suddenly Mum stops dead in her tracks. She says...'what is that amazing smell?' Turns out it was Wild Azaeleas blooming proudly. Smells kind of like 'just sliced apples' we think...

Heading over to the pasture we found a couple of daisies , among the grasses just forming their seed heads...

And some portions of the pasture are filled with lots of blooming weeds...

Near the ponds we found the phlox blooming again this beautiful!

And a few more round out the color scheme.

It's been kind of warm here some days, up into the 80's, nice shorts weather, Mum says. Although the bugs have come out in full force, including the ticks. annoying!

We've really enjoyed the wild life, flora and fauna here on our little Mountain...this weekend we pack up all our gear and head to our new cabin on another Mountain on Tuesday! Looking forward to settling in and seeing all there is to see in our new home; and sharing it with all of you!
