Signs of Early Spring
This is a view from my backyard. (There's a pile of dirt with grass growing on it, because they're building a house next door and that pile of dirt has been there for months. Lol. It was just a cow pasture, before- notice the stone walls.) I really love the view from my backyard, even if there is construction going on. I absolutely love those little yellow flowers, which are in full bloom right now, and will be for at least another month, if I remember right. Early in the morning, and again in the evening, their sweet smell is so strong that it's almost intoxicating. I love hanging outside after an early spring barbecue and smelling them into the night. They carpet many less-used cow pastures and empty lots around here, and they are just so bright and cheerful looking. The photo doesn't even do them justice.
