NICE TO SEE OUR ORIOLES BACK AGAIN
It’s true, with sunny blue skies overhead it was truly a no brainer as Pheebs & I didn’t waste any time in getting ourselves into the Jeep & out into the countryside. I was definitely needing a break from from the daily house routine & Motorhome thinking. And I’m sure Kelly was needing a break from me too. I try to be considerate of those things. Besides, after washing the Jeep a few days ago I’ve been constantly blinded by it’s shininess. It was time to slip ourselves on down some dusty country roads & get that shine problem taken care of.
MARSH MARIGOLDS & DANDELIONS ARE ALWAYS A SURE SIGN OF SPRING
Not one of our longer back road drives again but we did manage to wander ourselves around for a couple hours. Couldn’t seem to get myself in full photo mode but did manage to get a smattering of pictures. Hardwood trees & forests are still barren of leaves so Spring’s just not prettying itself up out there too fast. A chilly wind kept our roadside stops short & to a minimum.
THESE ARE UNDERWATER LILY PADS GROWING TO THE POND’S SURFACE WHERE THEY WILL SOON BE GREEN WITH FROGS SITTING ON THEM (not our pond)
I laid low all afternoon, just not feeling up to snuff these past few days but I’m sure whatever it is will pass. Generally does. Sunday being Mothers Day Kelly is off to Cambridge to spend some time with 4 of her 5 children. Fifth one is in Vancouver B.C. Pheebs & I will hang out at home & if the temps come up enough I might just slide out for a ride on my bike. Maybe that will help cure whatever it is that has been ailing me. My intestines have kinda been squooshing around like an old Maytag washer……………….
MAPLE TREE BUDS BEGINNING TO LEAF OUT
NORMALLY BY THIS TIME OF YEAR THAT BUSH LINE WOULD BE A NICE SHADE OF MID SPRING GREEN
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A businessman dragged himself home and barely made it to his chair before he dropped, exhausted. His sympathetic wife was right there with a tall cool drink and a comforting word. "My, you look tired," she said. "You must have had a hard day today. What happened to make you so exhausted?" "It was terrible," her husband said, "The company computers broke down and all of us had to do our own thinking."
The lateness of spring has a tendency to make us enjoy it more when it arrives. Lilacs are blooming here. Between enjoying the sweet smell of the lilacs and listening to the Robin talking to their babies, it's been great here. Wishing the same for you.....soon.ReplyDelete
The underwater Lilly pads are so pretty!ReplyDelete
Can't wait for the frogs!
It is nice to see the buds on the trees, finally nice signs of spring.ReplyDelete
It's nice to be able to get outside for a while. Being stuck inside tends to get old after a while. Spring is beautiful and those blue skies sure seem to help how we feel. Hope your insides feel better soon.ReplyDelete
Seems that even if not in photo mode, you get pretty darn nice pictures.ReplyDelete
The water photos are beautiful, soon the frog pads will be full of life.ReplyDelete
Do me a favor, Al. Post a really bad photo, okay? I have plenty to give you if you don't have one (which you probably don't).ReplyDelete
Good heavens, man! Your photos are always so dang gorgeous!
I think you have Spring Fever...My inards have been roiling the past few weeks. I DO believe there is such a thing as Spring Fever!!!ReplyDelete
