I've been away too long. I hope I haven't been forgotten! Spring is here and once again I am drawn to the flower gardens, camera in hand to capture the beauty our Father has blessed us with.
This Rhody is the most delicate lavender and it looks like an Orchid to me. I love it. We have had so much rain that I'm surprised anything can bloom.
This is apparently a cross between a white and a lavender Foxglove. I like the delicate pink. These blossoms always look sweet and shy.
The last red peony of the year. It had been raining so it's covered in rain drops. There's a fly hiding under a petal trying to stay dry. I had never thought about it before but I suppose if their wings get wet they wouldn't be able to fly very well. Does that make me feel sorry for them? Nope!
Two of my nieces are visiting from Colorado. Here they are in the dark pink shirt and in the red, white and blue heart shirt. The other three are my girls.
I hope you all had a nice Memorial Day celebration. I stayed home and ate soup! LOL
Be blessed! |

This is a neat old Burl. Moss is trying to cover it but it's still pretty. Burl's used to be cut into slabs and made into tables. Maybe they still are but I haven't seen any lately. I like this one just as it is.
Here's the beautiful variegated Lilac. My oldest daughter and her family gave it to me one Mother's Day. I love it. Yes it is fragrant!
If you can, enlarge this picture to see it better. High on a mountain we can see forever.....I love the clouds too.
Well it's the week of President birthdays. I don't celebrate and I don't go shopping. LOL I can just imagine the crowds and I hate waiting in lines.
I hope all is well in your world and old man winter is preparing to retreat.

IT'S A MIRACLE!!!! I CAN POST PICTURES AGAIN!!!
the snow hunt
Water falling off the rock cliff is all ice now and fascinating to see,
Just look at the huge piles of snow!! The river is way in the background. Notice the footprints on the snowy log to the left. I didn't see any coming back. ??? Maybe he's still down there!
When we were coming back down the highway the sun was shining through these moss covered trees. The color was really beautiful but some looked like grotesque, green monsters!
Well that's all for now. Hope you are having a blessed week!

*WISHING YOU A BLESSED NEW YEAR!*
I have had a certain Texas Blog friend Bev, almost from the time I began blogging. This sweet lady sent me three boxes of pecans this year. I have them all shelled and in the freezer except those I shared with family. I appreciate her generosity so much. The last time I went to buy pecans here they were nearly $15. a pound. Outrageous! Thank you again dear Bev for your precious gift. I made banana pecan muffins a few days ago. Mmmmmmm! I am so blessed.
OK, so don't laugh!!!! I think these sole less sandals are just as cute as can be and if I were a young girl with beautiful feet I would definitely want some. I found many patterns on the net and plan to make some. Maybe my granddaughters and great grand daughters would like them for summer. Wouldn't they be cute with shorts and a halter top or peasant blouse?
