Redbud Tree..

The Redbuds are really coming out, I love them as much as the Cherry Blossoms and so beautiful together.

Cherry blossoms falling like snow. ..

I love the cherry blossoms and hate it when they fall off, but today it was raining and they were falling like snow. It was beautiful. I got some pics, remember to see pics big, just right click to put the photo in a new link.

Lowes Trip

We went to Lowes yesterday and got Basil, Lavendar, corn, Dahlia, Blueberries and an Orange mint. I was so excited to find the Orange mint, it was the last one. I took some photos there, it's so pretty with all the plants.

Knitted Afghan...

What I'm working on now is a knitted afghan, since I'm afghan obsessed. It's just blocks of knit and although I'm getting faster, it still seems it's taking awhile for a block. It alot uses alot of yarn, it's Patons wool yarn, a Christmas present, but it will sure be warm.
I also found out I was knitting the wrong way when I made the washclothes. I was knitting in the back of the stitch, instead of through the front. LOL I want to get good at this, because I saw some photos of knitted lace, oh my goodness, how beautiful.

Deck cleaning and planting....

We were planting flowers, onions and tomatoes in pots on our back deck Sunday. First we had to wash up the flowerpots and everything on the deck. We were doing that Spring cleaning and we had a beautiful day to do it.

We planted the onions very close, we want to see how many survive. Once they start growing we'll have to replant in other pots. It was just a handful of onions, but when we seperated them it would have planted about two or three rows in a garden. LOL I wish we had a garden, but you take what you have and do what you can with it.

Tealight jar...

I made a tealight jar with red wire this morning.

I added the heart shape out of the wire to the front.

It's like the green floral/craft wire, but red and I believe I got it at Michaels.

Friendly Geese...

Everytime we go to Michaels, we first go to Chick fil a, then in the parking lot there's always some geese hanging around. They apparently love the attention or maybe it's the food people feed them. :) There's a little pond on the other side of the road, so they always venture out to that corner. Everyone knows they're there and you always see people just hanging around watching or feeding them. We park and eat there, so we can throw them fries, they love fries. You have to make sure both of them get to eat, because the female is quite the little pig and she doesn't like to share. LOL

Cherry Blossom Tree ...

The Cherry blossoms have come out earlier than usual and are beautiful. It's so warm outside, I believe everything thinks it's a few weeks later than it is now. I got a picture of the Cherry blossom tree again yesterday, about half the tree had blossoms. Then today, it was amazing how fast they came out, look at the difference between the first two pictures. Shazam!!! I also got another picture of my forget me nots, they always remind me of Tasha.

There's a story behind that tree, a few years ago the HOA, ~holding and shaking my head~, sent a letter to the realtor. They said the branches of the two trees in front were too close to the house and needed to be cut back. Soooo, he had a guy come out and I don't think he'd ever cut a tree in his life, anyway, he cut way too much. Oh, I was not a happy camper, I love trees and flowers, ya think? ;D
