Spring at Our Country Bungalow

This very pregnant mama deer was lounging in our yard for a full day last week.

I think she’s going to have twins.

We see this hawk flying above our area regularly. I had to zoom way in to capture it sitting at the top of a tree.

Our resident swallows have returned.

The rhubarb bush has exploded!

The earliest of our peonies that will flower are the red ones.

It has been fun to see these Johnny jump ups appear all over our property. They are such a sweet flower.

Hope May is bringing some sweet blooms in your corner of the world.

  1. Spring is looking good over there Ellen! My rhubarb is looking about the same and I’ve even plucked some for muffins. I might try to transplant one to our new place. Need to bring some of my old peony’s here too. Those Johnny Jump Ups are so pretty! Keep us posted about the Doe – hope you get to see the fawn(s).

  2. I love when the deer stay around all day.
    Did you know that twins are more common for deer to give birth to than only one. Three are not uncommon either.

  3. Hi Ellen, I love your photos. The deer looks great fun to have a place to rest. Loved seeing the rhubarb growing. Do you cook with it? I love Johnny jump ups….I used to dry them and decorate gift packages with them.

    • Mildred, I’ve made a few things with rhubarb but not a lot. I’m offering a friend my plant because she doesn’t have one and loves to use rhubarb.

  4. There is lots to observe now that spring has come to your corner. Our rhubarb is also doing well. The Johnny jump-ups are so pretty. Wonderful bird sightings.

  5. Ellen – that mama doe better rest up while she can! I am so envious of your rhubarb – I asked Hubby to look for some in the store, and he couldn’t find any in TWO of them. Sigh.
