up side down

In our yard, we have a tomato plant. Only it's growing downwards instead of upwards. Wonder if the tomatoes will be up side down too.

Missy the Kitty

My neighbors at the lake got a new kitty. Could she be any cuter??

Not much is cuter than momma swan with her babies.

Mom and her baby.
Baby April, as she was born April 1.

It was a beautiful day, and beautiful country.

These guys are best buds.

I went out to the country today to take pictues of a little baby horse. And her mommy. But found mules and ponies and lots and lots of horses. I love animals.


I love my yard in the spring.


I just love my doggie.

I picked myself a bouquet of lilacs today.

A few more spring flowers

Lilacs have to be my all time favorite flower of the spring. There is nothing that smells quite as good as this flower. Except maybe the lily of the valley. And they are not quite in bloom. Maybe tomorrow..

From the Dogwoods...

to the little purple flowers (that's what I call them because I don't know what they are)

to the violets

And the cluster of trillium. You know it's spring when you see these flowers pop up magically in your yard.

And my hen's and chicks made it through another winter on my back porch. yea!

And we can't forget the bleeding heart..

Along came a spider...

As spiders go, this is probably a very pretty one. But I got the creeps really bad taking his picture because I had to get VERY close to him. And I was afraid he was going to jump at me. But he didn't. p.s. he was huge. HUGE I tell ya.

I saw this at Hobby Lobby. I just had to have it. It's now in my laundry room at the cottage.

sunset at columbia

This is a "right out of the camera" untouched photo of tonight's sunset on Lake Columbia.

Poor little robin

Look what I found when I was cutting the grass. Good thing I noticed it just in time! I guess it was very windy yesterday. :-(
