Gradual and Green

 
Trail running on the north side
 of Vedder Mountain this morning...

 
...a gradual climb up and up,
and everything is greening up nicely!

 
Beat the rain home.  : )

Green is Here

 
At the beginning of last week
there was very little greenery on the trees (above)....

 


 
..and after a warm, sunny weekend
 the trees produced their brilliant green foliage(above- this week)...
...spring is here!
 
 
...beginning in the valley
and slowly creeping up the mountains.
 
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Silently Flying

 
A few days ago we saw hang gliders
jumping off from the top of the steep mountain...
 
Two of them managed to fly,
the third was not able to get off the ground...

 
No. 1 going down, down...
 

 
...down..

 
...down...

 
...quietly floating over us...
 
 
 
....and down below us....
 
 

 
No.2 flying by...

 
...looking quite comfortable...

 
and floating safely down
into the valley below us.
 
Thank you for visiting! : )

Bright and Warm

 
After a lovely, warm day today,
 20 degrees C....

 
..the robins are singing,
and the leaves on the trees are rapidly emerging...

 
... the spring flowers are in full bloom,
Arabis, Aubrieta, and Grape Hyacinth...

 
Although spring is late this year,
the perennials are as beautiful as ever!
 
Thank you for visiting!

Dyke View

 
This dyke protects the low lying fields from the river,
and it makes for a wonderful footpath
on a  beautiful day.
