Spring has Really Arrived

Well, as you may or may not know, I had the first of the cataract surgeries. My eye is remarkably improved. This means that there was a lot I was not seeing. The next surgery is April 6 and then I won’t have one eye that works and one that doesn’t.

 

During my time off, spring arrived here in North Carolina. Daffodils are up and blooming and trees and shrubs are blooming. I am including some of my photographs. Spring is much earlier here than what I am used to up North. I hope you enjoy.
