Our Spring has been wonderful so far. It's been warm and the trees and flowering bushes are beautiful. No snow to kill off buds! (Whoa, it's still early so I hope Mother Nature didn't hear that!)
This flowering crab is really pretty.
These white flowering trees dot our property...love them!
Of course it wouldn't be perfect Spring without my favorite lilacs and this year we weren't disappointed in the blooms. Too bad we don't have "smell 'ol blog"! Even though it's been a warmer than usual weather pattern I'm not going to plant any flowers or veggies just yet. In fact I noticed this staple of Ohio still planted by the back door:
Yep, it's probably going to hang there for just a bit!
Jack snapped this pic a few days ago....I guess I'd call this "two peas in a pod"! As this day comes to a close I'm asking for prayers for my Mom. She's in the hospital with some heart issues again. This time it's slow beats and a pacemaker is probably in the care plan. She's going to be 91 in May and it's always scary when things start to go wrong but she's also tough and determined to get out of the hospital ASAP. A trip to Chicago is probably in the works for us too depending on how things roll. She's in good hands with my sister who goes the extra mile to make sure Mom is well taken care of. I'm so thankful for her as I'm 350 miles away. Hang in there Mom! We love you!
