Blossoms Abound

As I gaze out my windows I am in awe of the color and beauty surrounding our home. The trees and shrubs are in full bloom and paint the countryside in vibrant hues.

Here are a few of the blossoms:

This is the lovely red bud my husband planted outside the kitchen window for me. The red bud is my favorite tree.

As I walk to the flower garden hubby planted my favorite shrub...the lilac bush. We had one planted for years but it never bloomed, so last year he dug up the old and planted a new is in full bloom.

Everyday as I arrive home I see this lovely crab apple tree. It is planted next to the driveway where it is surrounded by flowers all summer. Looking out the living room window I see this beautiful tree.

This is our apple tree. It provides a lovely view from the dining room.

We planted it 18 years ago when we built our house. It has struggled to survive but still blooms beautifully every spring. The wind has blown it over several times and hubby ties it back up. I won't let him dig it out and get a new one because it really works hard to survive.....I am just sentimental. favorite time of year as the sleeping follage wakens and provides me with so much beauty to enjoy.

Wanting to go........

......with Mom.

Here is my sweet kitty, Cassie. As I was getting my things packed to head to Omaha, Cassie got in my bag and hasn't moved. She has been watching me as I gather all the stuff to put in the bag.

I think she will miss me?!!

Sweet, sweet girl!

HAPPY EASTER........ my family and friends!

As spring begins to arrive it starts the beginning of life, perhaps that is the reason Easter is in the spring.

The botanicals begin to come to life after a long cold winter. New born fawns, birds and other animals are starting to play in our pasture. I LOVE the spring.

My wish for each of you is that you, too see new beginnings for your lives and you seek the path that will bring you happiness.

Bless You All!!!
