I know. I post a lot of flower pictures. And there are more to come. Not because I'm very good at taking them. Simply because it's Spring and that's what I'm noticing!
These blossoms are from the tree on the other side of our driveway. When it first bloomed I thought how nice it would be to have a couple in the backyard, maybe hang a hammock between them. When I went over to take the pictures, there was a LOUD hum of bees. The tree was swarmed with them. So, the tree, and it's pretty flowers can stay right on the other side of the driveway with it's bees. I'll find something else for the backyard!

Super blurry, I know. But I had to post it. My goodness, he's such a mix of teenager and child right now (my oldest, Evan, in the back) his face says child to me still. I wonder if maybe it always will. But every day it seems his style, his mannerisms, his personality - more and more a teen.

My husbands band, Boots N Shorts
I don't know what setting my camera was on half the night, but it was obviously all wrong (and I was um, slightly tipsy and couldn't be bothered to fix it)
Anyway, there's still something I really like about this picture.
(that's me in the black shirt and skirt. The skirt was a 3 dollar thrift store find, and perfect for the unseasonably warm evening!)
Colin had a play at school, the nanny goats gruff. I was honestly really amazed at how good it was for first graders. It was obvious how much time and effort was placed into it. No good pictures of the play - it was dark and we were in the back, this was just after.

hiking the hill again. It was only twenty-something degrees this morning and there was frost/light snow on the top of the hill. I took what I thought would be a cool picture of a small waterfall covered in icicles, but it didn't come out. I like this one though, I love the evergreens against all the brown.
We hiked up and around the back part of our hill, past the pond at the top and into where we had never been. The warm temperatures a week ago fooled me into early spring. Everything is still so brown. I can't wait for the green to start appearing!

St. Patricks Day - The Husbands band, Boots N Shorts - that lady dancing, she's funny. You can always find her dancing at local music. She always dances the same way too (no matter the band or the song), round in circles, arms shaking, eyes closed, smile on her face. This night, two skinny, young girls handing out info on some alcohol or another were giving her sideways glances and smirking. I understand why. But this lady. Those young girls have nothing on her. The open joy this woman exudes, she's something special.
