Not Nearly Enough Hours In A Day!

There just isn't enough time for me to do 
all that needs to get done, 
so lets procrastinate a little 
and take a walk around the yard.

We've had a few nice days in a row that has us 
thinking it's actually springtime!  

One of the things I love most about spring is watching nature's daily changes.  

 One day the Hostas are just poking through the ground...
And almost overnight, they've grown taller 
and the leaves have opened! 

The Tulips have gone from green buds

To full color,

fully opened flowers!

The trees have tiny leaves,

Dandelions are popping up all over the yard

 and the Columbine are standing taller.

I don't know if this is a weed or not, but for now, 
I'm enjoying the pretty little purple flowers.

Bleeding Heart is growing by the birdbath,

 My neighbor's beautiful color brightens up the corner,

Future Strawberries, 
(provided we don't have another frost)

and my mother's Rhubarb is growing like a weed!

 This odd looking plant starts out red, 
will grow to 10-15 feet tall 
and will have green/white variegated leaves 
on bamboo like stalks.
It spreads every year when the tiny white flowers 
drop their seeds.

Here, we find it coming up on the other side of the house!

The Smoke Bush is getting ready for the Hummingbirds
which means I'll need to hang the feeder soon.

I hope you've enjoyed walking around my yard with me.


My youngest daughter has contracted with 
the Army ROTC!
She has worked so hard all school year to achieve this
and we're very proud of her!


appear to be having a discussion.
What do you think they are talking about?

I showed this photo to Hubby and asked him
what he thought they were talking about.

His answer ~~
"She's giving him the Honey Do List, of course!"



  1. Pretty tulips Pam - spring has finally arrive! I think they cardinal couple are house-hunting!

  2. Congratulations to your lovely daughter! You must be proud. I love all your spring photos!

  3. Those purple flowers are not weeds. They are Johnny Jump Ups. I love those flowers. They were my favorites when I was a kid.
