    Here's a few more of the Fall Into Spring photos, I hope that they Brighten up your Day, like they have mine! :^D
    First is Swiss Chard, that Sally planted in the backyard, last Spring, again because of the mild Winter that we had this past year, the Chard is still doing good, and we have been able to eat some off of it all year!
    Second is a Sparrow at the top of a Flowering Crabapple Tree, in Bloom!
    In the third photo, Peaches is checking out the Dragon Head Downspout, next to Red Freesias, on the front walk.
    Last photo are Dwarf Eucalyptus Blossoms, and Leaves. It blossoms in Spring, but the Leaves stay all year. This "Dwarf" Tree has a Trunk that's 9 feet around, and is 40 feet tall, with branches reaching 20 feet from center in all directions!

    Thanks so much for stopping by for a look, any comments are welcome! :^)

      I hope everyone is well! Thank you for looking, and the love that you gave for what you saw, Vynil, aura, keramikos, and Kevin, it's always nice to get! :^)

      More beautiful pix Bill, very uplifting thanx for them - is that a cat face gutter cover, Peaches seems to think it's real!

      I had to check your profile to see what part of the country you are in because you have plants that we either don’t have here in NW Ga or I’ve tried them and failed to be successful.
      I love your cat and your dragon downspout....I have “fish” downspouts. I cannot grow freesia for whatever reason, so I had to move along to other flowers. Yours are beautiful!
      I had a Eucalyptus “bush” once but it didn’t survive a cold winter so had to move on from that also. Your massive tree must be spectacular...and it blooms! All the better!
      I really enjoy getting to visually “poke around” in other peoples’ yards...such as yours so thank you for posting some Spring time pictures. :-)

      Thanks Jenni, I'm happy that they lift you up! :^D It's a Dragon's head, and really I think that Peaches was nibbling on the grass, more than looking at the downspout, but it sounded better to mention the Dragon Head! :^D

      Thank you Patricia, the Freesias stay year round, and are bulbs, but only Bloom in the Spring, like Iris or Tulips, but don't die-back, in the S.F. Bay Area's temperate climate, and these are over 20+ years old now. I planted the Dwarf Eucalyptus about 25 years ago, and put my Shed about 3 feet from it about 13 years ago, and now the corner of it has been raised 6 inches, and the trunk is only a few inches from it now! I guess the conditions for the Tree are good, but it's time to move the shed! :^D

      Jenni, Patricia, Tim, and Brian, thanks to you all for the love given! :^)

      Lovely photos of your garden Bill, & it's nice to see the exact opposite of what is happening in my garden! My crabapple is colouring up fast for autumn & dropping leaves already...& I have some new freesia bulbs to plant - mixed colours including red, & a new variety called "Blushing Snow" which is white with a pink edge (never seen it before). And I am curious about what kind of eucalyptus tree you have there...they all come from Australia originally, but this one looks unfamiliar to me. And it's one plant I don't have in my garden, though we are surrounded by them as we live within a national park (much of which was destroyed in the recent fires). Many home gardens & public plantings here include eucalyptus, though some folks, myself included, don't think they are appropriate for home gardens, due to the fact they can drop large branches at random, & have shallow root systems which make them very vulnerable to falling over in storms/high winds. Also, they are a fire hazard due to the volatile oil that the leaves secrete. In fact, the Blue Mountains, where I live, gets the name due to the bluish haze created by eucalyptus trees!

      Thanks Marin(IronLace), I'll let my Wife know about that Freesia, we had other colors, these were the only ones that have lasted! When I planted it my Wife assured me that it was a Dwarf Eucalyptus, between 18-20 feet high, our HOA has a height limit, so Home Owners don't lose their views, but we live on the top of the Hill, and it wasn't enforced on us luckily, but as for the kind that it is, Not a Dwarf! :^D

      Thank you for taking a look, and for the love that you gave, for what you saw,
      Robert, Ken, Marin, Thomas, and Pascale, it's appreciated! :^)

      Thank you for the springtime pictures Bill, can’t help but smile :)
      Love how you “caught” the sparrow in the crabapple tree. I do miss the budding of fruit trees where I used to live, especially my Santa Rosa plum tree. The blossoms were gorgeous, and then, in the fall, the leaves would turn into breathe-taking colors! And the plums were good too!

      Thank you for your nice comment Eileen, and you're very welcome, I just thought it might help, along some of the others that are doing the same, I think it does help a little! :^D

      Hunter, good to have you stop for a look, and Eileen also, thanks much for the love that you both gave! :^)
