Isn't this tree a bit Sleepy Hollow?!
I can see my house in this pic!
View sitting on my front step, I have to pinch myself sometimes!
Are there signs of Spring where you live? What kind of countryside do you like most - forests, mountains, seaside, or flat farmland??
Also, if you can identify any of the plants in the bottom few pictures I'd be ever so grateful! I have a lot to learn about gardening!!
