Before the freeze...

Here's what our Athens house looked like last Friday, before the freeze killed all the blooms.

below: I've fallen in love with the Cherokee rose bush. It's gorgeous.

below: can kind of see 3 of the dogwoods...they are very impressive in person. There's a fourth one (huge) not visible in this photo. The bank of azaleas across the front all got burned by the freeze.

Now that we have a city house, we have to do onerous things like mow. Lawn's still patchy from winter, but weeds were getting high.

below: approach to front door.

below: wonderful fragrance...

Thanks for your kind words about my website. I've seen a lot of therapists' sites that seemed too cluttered, too busy, so I went for a rather minimalist look. Glad you liked it.

What a gorgeous yard you have! Congrats on the new home. I trust the cats are adjusting well to it. Hope to see you soon!

Wow!

What is with this Spring?! Here, too, we've had some freezing recently. Last week there was ice and pollen on the car wind shield.
