What else is there to do on a rainy day? Cleaned house and did laundry and then baked up a batch of good old fashion oatmeal raisin cookies. Yummm! I haven't mowed lawn since last Sunday and I can't get home in time during the week to get it done. It will have to be baled by the time I do get to do it. Plus, we leave next Friday night to go down to my brother in laws for the weekend. Ugh....I might have to hire someone to mow this week!
Captured these one morning, heading for work. We have a garden in the middle of an intersection that the master gardeners maintain and I just happened to drive down this road while cutting around some traffic congestion. I'm always forgetting about it cause it's on a road I don't travel on much. Anyway, took these and a few more and will post as I work them up. I thought I'd get back over there the next morning, earlier, but forgot. They would look better if the sun was not as high as it was on this day.
This is my favorite color of crabapple. I'll try and get a shot tonight of it in fuller bloom. I took this one on Sat. morning and it wasn't quite completely bloomed out yet. Had a super busy weekend....mainly cleaning and fertilizing flower beds. I'm beginning to realize that I've got way too much to take care of for the shape I'm in. But...I was able to get down on my knees on Sunday evening....I hadn't been able to do that since I had surgery. Maybe the knee is finally coming around! Yippee.
Hummmm....when I click on new post, I have to delete your signature...what's up with that? Anyway, took this quickly this am cause I wanted to catch it as it was emerging. I got home last night and noticed that it was covered with buds and it was waking up this morning. Love this tree! It's not real sharp but was pretty windy and I didn't want to wait.
I'm not sure what I did but I posted this last night and it disappeared. Maybe I just dreamed that I posted it...LOL.... We are finally in full Spring now. I can't believe how much opened up this weekend. It's like everything that had been asleep all winter, decided to wake up at the same time. The world is once again, beautiful!
Went back through my pictures and pulled out a few that says Spring Is Here. I normally like the nice bright colors of Spring but I decided to tone them down some by giving this a vintage look by adding an overlay from Florabella.
Had a wonderful time with the Grands over Easter. They went home yesterday and I'm wiped out today. Plus it's raining and that always makes me sleepy. I'm so glad the weather was so nice for the kids. We even had to turn the AC on it got so hot.

Used an action called try out pak and I can't remember where I got it.
I love taking photos of these clouds. There is just something about a huge white thunderhead against a blue sky that is mesmerizing to me. Took this yesterday and will probably see them again today as we have severe weather in the forecast for this afternoon. We worked most all weekend in the yard. After our 15 minutes of hurricane winds on Good Friday, the rest of the weekend turned out real nice. We got the lawn all mowed and fertilized and I got some of the mums and pampas grass cut back. I've still got lots of cleaning to do. Christmas is officially over here in Missouri now...got the last of the Christmas decorations taken down and put away on Sunday morning. LOL....this was a first for us...we NEVER have lights up after the end of January, let alone the end of March...a sign of how severe our winter was here. We got the front yard tilled up and seeded down but the storm interfered with the side yard work. If we had had one more hour before the storm, we would have got that side done too. It's suppose to be nice next weekend, so hope to get it done before we have to leave for Gavin's birthday party.
