Before I had even taken the last tortilla from the burner, Andrew and Julia had finished their tacos and were begging to be excused so they could get out in the good weather. Before I had loaded my tortilla, Andrew was running back in hollering for me to come and bring my camera!
Cousin Andrew is teasingly referred to as "half monkey" since he fearlessly climbs anything,
any where and today was the day he decided he needed an apprentice!
Julia has only ever dabbled in tree climbing before but today she 'took flight' and kept going up....
Mairead and Mari were less than impressed.
Okay, Mairead was only being kept on terra firma by the flip-flops she was wearing...once she borrowed my shoes she was among the branches as well! Mari is not my adventurous child. Feet firm on the ground for her!
Patrick hovered protectively with many protestations but I assured him that I had survived a tree climbing childhood just fine so Julia stayed in her nest as long as she could.
So while they flitted among the branches I went around a caught a few images of the annual signs of spring.....apologies to all my blogging photographer friends as I am deficient in camera skills!!
day three and the garden is still 'alive' (:
