  Today while holding a Broker's Open House I spotted a gate across the street.   I was intrigued, for some reason I thought something was out of place.  When I had the chance, I decided to take a closer look and I soon figure out  that this was a gate with no fence.  Yes you could go on either side of the fence and access the property.

The weather on Saturday was just perfect so I spent time cleaning up some of the garden beds,  I also stopped to take a few shots of the Pumonaria on a hillside, and then this bee came along.  I watched it move from Pulmomaria flower to flower and then I thought this bee on the Pulmonaria flowers was worth capturing. Time to appreciate the  smells and sounds of spring.

                                                              Forsythia in bloom   Today was a dreary day, intermittent wet snowflakes was trying to make a mark.I just couldn't help dreaming about spring, so close but yet so far away. So I thought I would focus on some of the scenes I have seen during previous springs.The Forsythia came to mind. It is one of the first spring flower you will see around here. The brilliant yellow colors really lift the spirit especially after a long cold winter.

Spring Lake Red Hook NY Spring Lake is a small lake with mostly small cottages on both sides.  Many of the homes comes with small docks from which the homeowners can launch their small row boats. This was the scene after a snow storm, you can barely see the docks and boats and the lake is covered. So where is my Spring Lake boat? is a question one of these boat owners might be asking.

Red Hook Home for sale|237 Rockefeller Ln,Red Hook NY 12571 I have a showing scheduled for tomorrow at 237 Rockefeller Lane, so I stopped by late this afternoon to make sure the long driveway was okay to drive on. While I was there I couldn't help enjoying the lovely winter scene.  The snow covering the 9.86 acres and the lovely Catskill Mountains in the background. And that was not all, the sunset was setting so I was able to watch that too.

Chive a touch of color During the spring and summer I love to take photographs of flowers in my garden for these moments because I love a bit of color on a cold winter day, in this case provided by an herb plant the Chive. This little chive plant was fighting for some space between an iris and a primrose.  I like the way the very green leaves framed the small flowers from the chive plant.
