Monthly Meet-up ~ Flowers 🌺 🌷💐

Hello my lovely friends 💕

Today I finally found the time to read many of your wonderful blogs 😃

While indulging in that, I stumbled across a photo challenge, hosted by Wild Daffodil

This month’s theme is Flowers 💐

Since we’re having a very late Spring, I didn’t expect too much when I headed into the yard with my camera. But upon closer inspection I did spot a few picture-worthy blooms. 😃

Under a just-now-sprouting-green ‘Rose of Sharon’ bush I found some ‘Forget-me-nots’ 😊

The Lilac bush is showing off it’s beauty – and spreading it’s wonderful fragrance through the little corner of our world 😍

Dandelions…we have Dandelions! 😁 But I do love them so they get to stay (and spread 😉)

Then I spotted some little violets hiding in the grass 🙂

Aren’t they lovely? 💕

Back inside I noticed that my ‘Christmas Cactus’ is starting to bloom 😆 Does that count?

Silly little thing 😁

I did save my favorite picture for last 😍

Make a wish! 🧚🏼‍♀️

I know that wasn’t much…but I think the few that had the decency to show up deserve a little praise! 😁

Let’s hope that Flowers will bloom all around us soon! 💕

Thanks for dropping by! 🤗 I hope you enjoyed your stay!


Trees & Shadows ~ The Sun Is Out 😎

Hello my lovely friends 💕

If you stand on your tippy-toes you can see the weekend from here 😃 And just in time the sun decided to join us!

Everyone is squinting and blinking – it’s been a while since it was this bright outside 🌞

But you’re not here for the Kansas weather report…so I get to the ‘Trees & Shadows‘ that brought you here 😊

When I took the dogs outside, I noticed that the sun was in the perfect position for this beautiful image

Mother Nature really painted a beautiful picture here 😍

I snapped a few more photos, but the first one really is my favorite!

And I noticed the first sign of Spring

The Maple tree is budding a few weeks earlier than last year…I hope that’s a good sign 😊 and that she knows what she’s doing. Not like these poor things 😂

I hope you have a fabulous weekend! 😎🌞🌷

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the short trip into our backyard 💕
