We're at the beginning of a long process as Roni whacks the weeds in our back yard. A month after this photo was shot, this section is back to bare dirt (or sand). Photo by Glenn.

Here are some of the completed eggs. Try as we might, we couldn't fit them all in one basket. Photo by Glenn.
Our egg decorating kit came with stickers to make funny people. We've got a whole community of Humpty Dumpties here. Photo by Glenn.

Everything's coming up roses in our front yard. One of our most productive plants is at its colorful peak April 12. Follow this link if you want to see some closeups. Photo by Glenn.

Spring is all about flower power, and we've got plenty of it growing along the edge of our front lawn. Photo by Glenn.
