More spring growth

The 20-year-old Japanese maple bursts forth each year.  Careful pruning shapes the globe, and the slow growth pattern looks good in any landscape.

Our blue spruce youngsters in the side yard show good new growth this year.  The fenced paddock in the background is ready for the first mowing of the year.

The fence along our middle driveway, which leads to the "back forty" and branches off to our two large barns, makes interesting shadows in the setting sun.

One of our raised beds shows off an allium, which is a flowering member of the onion family.  Developing lillies and iris, fading daffodil stems, and a volunteer evergreen (a yew or juniper?) provide a green background.
