You know you’ve been a neglectful blogger when the hubby of all people, asks why you haven’t posted anything in several weeks! I didn’t even realize that he’d been paying any attention to “my little blog” as he calls it 🙂 So I have a couple photos for you today..
Our first flowers of the year
Needless to say, I’ve been spending a lot of time outside this week. After weeks upon weeks of storms, we’re finally seeing some sunshine. This has been our wettest winter since 1997 ~ we’ve been having extreme flooding and our ground is completely saturated. Since we usually live in a state of near panic due to drought conditions and the threat of wells going dry, it really is nice to see an overabundance of water. It would just be nice if it could rain a few days and then be sunny; then rain a day or two and be sunny….. We had ten days straight with rain at some point so we’re a little soggy.
Super high grass and weeds
Poor Mr. MoonCat is asking if I won’t reconsider adding a couple of goats to our menagerie for weed control. We may have to get the mower deck for the tractor for the front and back yard as the grass and weeds have been growing several inches a day. The ground is super wet so we can’t get the lawn mower in there yet and the lovely sunshine is just making everything GROW!
Our gorgeous Weeping Willow
The photo below is actually a blossom from a weed. I loved the shading and pattern on the bud.

And finally, we already have a rose (or possibly, still have a rose?)
