Spring in Briarcliff Manor

When I walked outside this morning, I was greeted by an old friend: warmth. Warm weather isn’t new this year, but the norm lately has been brisk mornings, warm days and cool evenings. A warm morning, for me, is a first in 2009.  Briarcliff Manor is beautiful in the Spring, and I took some photos of my favorite place in the Village: my yard. 

Spring is Here

That tree just got those white blossoms. You can see the forsythia behind the fence.

This is a better view of the forsythia. 


My lawn is not a putting green. I prefer to consider it “vegitatively diverse.” Those legs belong to a certain camera hog who loves dandelions more than her dad. 

 No more firewood!

One of Spring’s other calling cards: no more need for firewood.

One more nice one:

Put your line here! Low rates! Call now! 

The back yard cherry blossoms will be next week. They aren’t quite there yet. Here’s sneak preview from last year:
