The picture hangers came early and we moved pictures around. This large photo ended up above the mantel. I spent the remainder of the morning playing around, moving lamps and various vases and vessels, figuring out what would go where.
In the afternoon I worked in the yard. We are still in the early stages of spring, or is it the wishful stages of spring? But the hellebores are looking even more lush and beautiful than they were a few weeks ago.
And I have the beginnings of small buds on these tiny Hilda Niblett azaleas. My forsythia is budding heavily but is not quite in bloom yet. There are forsythia blossoms all over Knoxville, but the shady side of my hilltop is a week or two behind those parts of town closer to the river, increasing the anticipation and prolonging the pleasure.
