S is for Surprise #AtoZChallenge

spring surprise

Just over a week ago, we purchased some $1 flowers for a project that my husband is working on. I wasn’t sure they would survive. They were spindly three inch green spikes with no sign of a flower to be found. Since we brought the lot home, they have been subjected to hard rain, snow (3 times) and high winds. I was convinced that there was little chance that we would ever see a flower. We went away for the weekend, fully expecting to find either empty pots or the lot having fallen off the steps. You can imagine our surprise and delight when we were greeted by this pot of little cuties along with three others! If nothing else, these flowers are survivors! Now they need to survive three year old Beej!

Spring might have finally arrived here!




Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Spring – Wood

It doesn’t feel like spring here in the Midwest these days so I need to dust off some pictures from previous years to take part in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Spring – Wood.

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 23- Season


I cannot wait for warmer weather….. like say spring temperatures….so we can enjoy the feel of sunshine and the cool breeze off the lake on our faces! This lake is not far from us and I can’t wait to get out and take some pictures, if it ever gets warm enough!
