Headed for the river

This family of Canada geese was crossing a busy road this morning; traffic came to a halt to let them cross -- and to admire them. I love it when I have my camera handy at the right time!

Liza Jane is a year old today

From this (Liza's first day here):



to this. Our little girl is growing up!

She's such a bundle of joy and energy! And we're so lucky to have her.

The Rhododendron Garden

Our annual walk around Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, on our anniversary.

We decided to take Liza even though we worried about her barking at the ducks and geese. She was wonderful, and so loved exploring all the smells!



Rhody bud:


This gorgeous willow graces the beginning of the trails.


White rhody:


Redwing blackbird; this is prime territory for them, and their beautiful calls echo all over the park.


We think this is the stamen. Whatever it is, it's fascinating!

Fern:


Duck family. See the babies tucked into the rushes? Mom and dad were very protective.

In the Garden

Here's what's blooming this week:

Tulips peek out on sunny days, but close back up when another cold rainy day comes along.


Camas lily




Euphorbia, one of the most interesting plants around.
