spring buds

Creeping Myrtle has the prettiest blue flowers in the spring.

I don't know what the heck this thing is, but it's growing out of one of my trees trunks.

And who said Dandy-Lions aren't pretty.

And I found this tiny maple leaf that just opened up this morning.
Oh, I do love Spring!


My mom always told me when it rains while the sun is out, there is sure to be a rainbow. Today, she was right.

lake time

this is the perfect time of year, just before all of the boats go in, but everything says warm weather is near.

Signs of Spring

The shrubs are budding..

The Bleeding Heart is so close to opening.

The pachysandra is in bloom.

And I wish I knew what kind of bug this was... it looks like a chip of wood. My sister would know.

Happy Easter

Another sure sign of spring. I found the one hyacinth that my dog didn't take a nap on and flatten.

After over 20 years of having a red dining room, I decided to lighten it up a bit and put some sunshine in that room.

The Beautiful Southwest

This is NOT a Monarch.

I went to work with my sister one day. She works at an Arizona park where I took the above pictures. Nice place to work, huh?
