I don’t know whether this was in direct response to my tweet or not, but just look what Aperture Science sent me for Valentine’s Day! That’s my favorite of dozens of shots. Yeah, it’s safe […]
Here’s a bee making sure we’ll have seeds to plant from Ethan’s awesome sunflower: The kids are very excited about planting a row of these in our garden next spring. Here’s hoping they’ll actually work.

Lilacs Bloomed Every Spring, Just like before… I loved that eerie song about the Soldier Boy by John Rutter. We sang it in our SATB choir in either Highschool or Junior High. I’ll type the full lyrics if I can remember them. But more than the song I like Lilacs! Here are seven pictures, including my favorite: the six-fingered mutant lilac!
Today the kids and I walked to the back of the yard and into the field, where we found ladybugs, dandelions, speckled rocks, forget-me-nots, and all sorts of tiny wild flowers. I couldn’t catch a picture of the ladybugs but here’s a mini-bouquet I picked and Mary flaunting a dandelion she found. TGIS – Thank goodness it’s Spring 🙂
This mom loves flowers, and here are the ones I got for mothers day. The magenta flowers are from church, and the roses are from my mom.
They say april showers bring my flowers. Well, we’ve had showers in May, complete with wind strong enough to knock down a home being built nearby. But the clouds were amazingly pretty, and I’m sure the flowers loved the water…
April showers bring May flowers! Here are some photos of the flowers I’ve encountered this spring and summer. If you like them & want a higher res, feel free to write!
