Even though today would best be described as "gloomy", the colors around here are more "in the pink".
The crabapple tree survived the snow..
The blossoms are not only pretty, they smell divine! (I wish I had "smell-a-blog).
This is our other crabapple and it too looks really lovely...even with gray skies. The rest of the foliage is greening up. Our temps this week have been cool, 40's and 50's, but that's OK...we're tough up North! This month has flown by and I haven't posted very often. Not too much happening around here except:
We have a bit of a water problem near the driveway entrance and some new tiles were put in with the hope that rain water will flow into the big drain near the road. The jury is still out on that one. We're not planting new grass until we're sure no more digging will be necessary.
Our next door neighbor put her home and land on sale a few weeks ago and it sold pretty quickly. I suppose it wasn't any of my blog buddies that bought it, was it? It's a pretty place with 5 acres, inground pool, sweet barn and fenced pasture and the nicest neighbors who will stop over with a plate of homemade cookies...just sayin!
Red winged black birds are back..I wonder if this is our old friend Sam who visited us regularly last Spring?
Last, but not least, I'll end with some more pink...or lilac color. The lilacs didn't do very good this year but I managed to cut a bouquet last night. Again, some smell-a-blog would be nice...they are some of my favorite flowers and I hope to snag a few more bouquets before they are all gone. May is here this weekend and I might get brave and plant some flowers....I need to see more than pink!
