Ahhhhh. Finally!

I am very happy today. Why you might be asking. Because it is SUNNY and WARM today, and I am in my back yard enjoying the SPRING!!! Finally it has arrived! And if you could see me, I would be doing a happy dance. The dance of Spring! When the weather gets warmer and I can see the flowers popping up everywhere, and the buds on the trees it really makes me feel alive. I can shake off the cob-webs of winter.

I usually love planning my flower beds and gardening, but I am going to pass this year. My tummy is pretty big and it makes it very difficult bending over all the time tending to the weeds and such. I did manage to prune the front flower bed and put up a little white picket fence around it a few weeks back. I did pay for it the following day though, which is very sad to say. My back was killing me the following day and my LEGS, oh how they ached. I had no idea that being on my knees for 30-45 minutes would cause me to have the worse leg craps in my life.

Here is a picture of the front yard all pretty with the pink and redish tulips that finally opened up on Wednesday of this pass week. I love it when I drive up to my house and see them.

Also got to playing around with the camera settings and realized that the "Flower" Setting is really cool. Look at these close ups of a daffodil out in my back yard, and the Lilac Bush is getting ready to bloom. We have about 10-15 blooms. Last year there was only 2 blooms!

Hope you all have a great day!
