I seem to have fallen off the posting wagon, so in order to get myself back ON, I thought I may as well just pull recent pictures and MAKE myself write something! Truthfully, it has been a difficult month or so for me emotionally. I don't know if seasonal allergies play a part in making a girl feel "down" and downright LAZY, but that's what I'm blaming it on...added to that, a birthday, an anniversary, multiple new responsibilities on the horizon(my hubby has agreed to take a significant volunteer position with a local group, and we just don't know what the task even really looks like yet), and most recently receiving notice that he has just under one month before being laid off from his job...but if I look back at my journals/posts for this time of year, I always get a little March Hare Madness going on around this time. It simply MUST be the POLLEN! :)
It has made it hard to post because finding something in my swirling thoughts to nail down in print is just too energy-draining...so, the pictures.
|The "big girls" by the front walk.|
The Silkies in their playpen.
The "Uglies" hiding in the Louisiana Iris by the front steps.
The front flower bed has really liked this spring! Yarrow and Mx Primrose are flourishing.
The white rose by the driveway is doing well.
I thought the neighborhood ducks might come by to visit, but they had found a happy puddle elsewhere.
They are the funniest creatures!
C's lasagna bed off the front porch is doing REALLY well. She just plants and plants there, and everything enjoys that spot!
She left the ornamental kale to flower, and it has been surrounded by a happy purple-flowered weed and the chocolate mint.
Happy red geraniums backed by Siberian iris and lemon balm.
Petunias in a strawberry pot.
The butterfly bush never died back this winter, and it has just started really blooming.
Even the weeds lend their best appearances to her garden.
My crew on their way home! They were sure moving QUICKLY!
I wanted to share one more cute thing with you. The top picture in this post is the fruit on our black cherry tree, which is ripening now. The kids have been climbing up to pick the tiny fruits, hoping to beat the wild birds to them.(No luck there!)
The Redhead was picking yesterday, and I thought it was hilarious that the CAT was keeping her company--
ON THE LADDER.
I have to think there aren't many cats who would willingly do this! I'm not sure if she got up there on her own accord, or if she was pressured into it!
These crazy critters and too-quickly-growing people keep me going...
Blessings, every single one.
Hope your day is lovely.
