Just Returned

from a week-long trip to San Francisco, CA.  It was my first trip cross-country.  It was a great trip, and it was great to get back home.  :)

Spring Blooms

First Wild Geranium blossom

Strawberries are blooming

Bayley and Marlee are fascinated by the TINIEST turtle we have ever seen

"Hope" is the thing with feathers -- 
That perches in the soul -- 
And sings the tune without the words --
And never stops -- at all -- 
And sweetest -- in the Gale -- is heard -- 
And sore must be the storm -- 
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -- 
I've heard it in the chillest land -- 
And on the strangest Sea --
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb -- of Me.
