Wednesday Flowers And A Walk
I can't believe it. Wednesday always seems to come in a rush. Wow! I got my latest flowers done yesterday. Guess I was on a roll. See how many blooms I have.
The weather was crazy yesterday. So much rain! I've lived in this area all my life and I don't remember the nearby city ever getting flooded so heavily. The grass is growing fast but the ground is so soaked it's like having a grass mat floating on the water. About the time it's dry enough to mow the lawn it will be a meadow.
My daughter and I took a walk in the neighborhood and I took a few pictures to share.
First there was a baby garter snake on the road. I wasn't looking down and almost stepped on him. My daughter said he looked pretty mad at me. I guess my shadow disturbed his sunbathing.
Next the neighbor's horses saw us and I can just imagine they were thinking: 'Well, you came to visit and didn't bring us a treat?'
Then we got to the top of the hill (sound of me huffing and puffing my way up) and I had to share how green the country side has gotten.
And this is looking back down the hill toward home. Find the tree in the middle of the picture that is leafing out in bright yellow green and you will be barely able make out the back of our home.
