What’s that bright light in the pines?  Haven’t see anything like it for days.

With the sunshine today, the first since last Monday, things are beginning to pop around the house.  First noticed the Jasmine blooming in a tree by the shop.

Also on the fence around the yard.

Finished the installation of the new glass on the Casita door.  Really like the way it turned out.  Hope it continues to look good.  First time I’ve tried anything like that.

Hopefully, we will have a few days without rain.  Doing carpentry work the next few days.  Got to get that project done before June, or the brother will be working by himself…jc


  1. It was still cloudy today down by the coast, and you sure seem to have lots more blooming!

  2. Wow, beautiful blooms everywhere. I knew it was almost spring! We are getting a lot of rain here near San Antonio but trying not to complain since it is so needed. The window for your Casita door is beautiful too.


  3. Love the door window. Just knew it was Spring somewhere. Beaut pics.

  4. Wow-it is true that some folks throw a big shadow:)
