Lettuce and Flowers

I forgot to show you the lettuce garden.  Bob planted this nice and early and we are already getting some wonderful, crisp green lettuce. 

 This was the first cutting of lettuce.  And it barely made a dent in what is there.  Oh, fresh salads!!

 This is a view right outside of our house.  We have a few large azaleas in the circle of the driveway.  They are full of pink buds just waiting to burst into bloom!  In the background, you can see the pink dogwood in full bloom.  Off to the right, the tulip poplar tree is just flushed out with new leaves. 

 Here is an early bloom.  Soon the bushes will be full of them!

 This is a new azalea that we planted just last fall.  It is a native azalea.  So pretty!!

Spring is blooming all around.  We had a sweet rain today that washed down the pollen.  The air was so fresh and sweet afterward. 

Hope you have a blessed day!

Back Again!

Hello to my blog friends!  It has been a long time since I posted but I am back.  My family and I are doing well.  Life has been very interesting and we are learning new things all the time! 

It seems I often have post ideas as I am going through my day but don't seem to have the time to sit down and write them!  So as time allows, I will be posting about serious and not so serious, even fun things. 

The weather here has been so nice and warm.  Bob has been working hard in our garden all winter and already has some things in the ground.  We are hoping for a bumper crop this year. 

Last September, we got 23 day-old chicks.  They are just starting to lay eggs now.  Yay!!

This is the rooster that was the freebie of the bunch.  He has feathers on his feet.

So that's it for now. 

A special HI to my dear friend, Cindy!!  Thanks for encouraging me!

Hope you all have a great day!
