Spring Surprises

We're having the most amazing weather for March. Record highs and light spring rain - even if there's rumbling and grumbling. I love how afternoon rain followed by blue skies makes everything sparkle like Mother Natures bling. Priceless.

 Here are a few shots of the view from our soon to be backyard. 
Our road used to be called the Potlake or Potleg Road - we can't be sure which; it depends on who you talk to. We like Potlake best and imagine that this natural spring pond is how it got it's name, so are referring to our new place as the Potlake farm. 
At just under 2 acres, it's not really a farm anymore but that's just another little liberty we're taking. 

On our drive out today, we passed a couple walking their dogs. Mike waved, and I asked " who was that?" Mike replied " I don't know, but they're walking down our road."

There are ducks in the pond. I can't wait to see little ducklings.

And there are grapevines!
Lots of them, so we imagine that the couple made their own wine back in the day. 
I love that they used Y branches as stakes.

And who doesn't appreciate a good curlicue?

Made even sweeter with shiny diamond drops of rain.

Hope you're enjoying spring surprises.
