and now, it really does both look and feel like spring...
and even the weeds are pretty. I suppose that's why we are overrun with them. After a long hard winter, if it's green, it stays. There are a few flowers amongst all these weeds...
the cool dark green of spring reminds me of childhood days when Shelby, Jackie, and I would beg mama to let us take our shoes off and go barefoot for the first time. We would beg until she would say, "oh, go ahead, and if you get pneumonia, don't come crying to me". Mama used to say too, about the dark green grass in early spring, "that looks to me like a good place to hide Easter eggs".
the pink dogwood will soon be in full bloom
Do you plan to dye a basket full of Easter eggs? I do. It's fun, even if there are no small children here, I will enjoy them.
and a funny thing about these tulips...tulips haven't bloomed here in years!
and now we need more tulips!
Sure hope you all haven't deleted me and this silly blog just yet. I promised, after my last post to visit and catch up but...
it started last Friday...that raw feeling in my throat, almost like having swallowed coffee that was too hot. Come Saturday morning I had it all...fever, chills, sore throat, aches and pains. The flu test at urgent care was negative. A virus, the doctor said and prescribed a syrupy liquid that she said would help me feel better.
Here it is almost Friday again and I am not completely over this mess which now feels like the worst cold I've had in years.
looking up through the trees that are covered in teeny tiny leaf buds...but oh that pollen. It is unbelievably bad this year!
Thank you friends, for visiting.
