A BLINK OF AN EYE~

The sun made a brief appearance... to wet to mow...to wet to plant... a quick walk around the yard... blue violets... white lilacs...

bonding time...white violets...


and bluebirds...

three pair of bluebirds are nesting here at Dog Trot Farm...

apple blossoms..

purple lilacs...

a quick nap...

interrupted by raindrops...

all to soon a mad dash back to the coop...

in the blink of an eye...it was over...I hope the sun is shining where you are, please send us some. Thank you and goodnight...

Our week of rain finally ended today and things dried out. I got my lawn mowed for the first time this season tonight. It was looking pretty shabby but now it looks so tidy. Makes me happy.
