This is a bit picture heavy and NO cards today
just a post of some of my flowers and the crazy weather we have had since Friday.
I haven't been online much as the storms have been horrific with lightning and
Here is a picture of our nasty weather.
Now on to more pleasant things.
I was able to grab these photos last week before all the rains.
Below is our crab apple tree coming into bloom.
Next is a Redbud tree I planted as just a tiny stick.
It grew like wildfire.
Next is a Sand Cherry bush next to the house.
Growing beside the Sand Cherry is an Oregon Gold Bush.
This came as a tiny plant from a garage sale.
These mini (and early bloomers) Iris are planted on
my beloved Nellie dog's grave.
The last picture is of Mr and Mr's Mallard's eggs,
deposited right in the middle of my flower (weed) garden.
I was working weeding one day and had no idea they were there
until the Mrs. flew up into my face and scared the 'bejebbers' out of me!!
But on a sad note, I peeked at them on Mother's Day and only one egg remains
and it was covered in ants...no remains of shells or anything,
so whatever got them, it carried the eggs off...sigh!
I will be back next week with more flowers to share, as they bloom...
hope I haven't bored you too much, but I LOVE my flower gardens!
