Such a different view from the first photo I took out my studio window. Now the apple tree is in pretty pink bloom and the giant old maples are sprouting delicate green leaves. The dandelions are up and that’s Simon and Tess grazing on the right. Shade, soon I’ll have so much shade I may not have to use the curtain on the west window to block the strong sun. I’ve also noticed, with the change of season and position of the sun in the sky, I don’t get the hot sun coming in my south facing windows. Soon screens on my windows and lilacs on the bush.
