|SATURDAY NIGHT SUNSET FROM BAYFIELD'S PIONEER PARK|
With this morning's brisk but warm northwest wind blowing the fields of winter wheat around I was reminded of those gusting Arizona desert winds I remember so well from not so long ago. It was a beautiful country Sunday morning watching the undulating fields of wheat waving in long patterns across the ever-greening landscape.
|SO NICE STANDING HERE ON A QUIET SUNDAY MORNING WATCHING THE WIND WAVING THROUGH THIS FIELD OF WINTER WHEAT|
|EVEN PHEEBS WENT OUT THERE TO PLAY IN THE WINDY WAVES|
|NEWLY PLANTED FIELDS ARE GREENING UP QUICKLY|
|WILD PHLOX GROWING ALONGSIDE THE ROAD|
|PHEEBS ENJOYING ANOTHER MORNING JEEP RIDE|
Tired after a restless night, our gravel road tour this morning was not one of our longer forays of years past. With gas prices yet again on the rise I am ever conscious of our little gas-guzzling Jeep Liberty.

A lazy afternoon took me for a walk around our yard with my camera. We are quickly closing in on the prettiest time of the season here at home with flowers, flowering bushes, and blossoming trees lending an aroma to the warm Spring air giving one a sense of well-being.
|OUR ORANGE AZALEA PLANT IS ALSO IN BLOOM|
|IT'S ALWAYS NICE SEEING FROGS IN OUR FROG POND|
|OUR BACKYARD LILACS TREES ARE IN BLOOM|
|OH HOW NICE THE SWEET AROMA WALKING BY THESE LILAC TREES|
|BAYFIELD'S SATURDAY NIGHT SUNSET|
|DID YOU NOTICE THE PERSON IN THE WATER JUST OFF THE END OF THE PIER?|
|'OKAY NOW, HOW ARE WE GOING TO DIVIDE UP THIS ICE CREAM CONE'|
|'WHY CAN'T I HAVE MY OWN ICE CREAM CONE DAD'?|
|'WELL PHEEBS, IT'S LIKE THIS.'............|
|'YA YA DAD, I'VE HEARD THAT OLD STORY BEFORE'|
|I RESOLVED THE PROBLEM BY GIVING PHEEBS HER FAIR SHARE OF ICE CREAM IN HER WATER DISH AND SHE GOT THE LAST OF THE CONE|
|VACUUMING UP THE CRUMBS|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( 70-year-old Ralph went for his annual physical. All of his tests came back with normal results. Dr. Smith said, "Ralph, everything looks great physically. How are you doing mentally and emotionally? Are you at peace with yourself, and do you have a good relationship with your God?" Ralph replied, "God and me are very close. He knows I have poor eyesight, so he's fixed it so that when I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom (poof!) the light goes on when I pee, and then (poof!) the light goes off when I'm done." "Wow," commented Dr. Smith, "that's incredible!" A little later in the day Dr. Smith called Ralph's wife. "Thelma," he said, "Ralph is just fine. Physically he's great, but I had to call because I'm in awe of his relationship with God. Is it true that he gets up during the night and (poof!) the light goes on in the bathroom, and then (poof!) the light goes off?" Thelma exclaimed, "That old fool! He's peeing in the refrigerator again!"
Oh. Lilacs. I wish they would grow here. 40 years ago, I used to see a bush now and then and loved the smell. But no longer. I guess it's gotten too hot. What lovely flowers you have close by! Thanks for the nice drive. I was relieved to see that Pheebs had a bite.ReplyDelete
Your yard looks so beautiful with all the wonderful colors! And of course the sunset pictures are fantasticReplyDelete
My tree lilacs are also in bloom now and just gorgeous like yours. Once again Miss Pheebs' photos are wonderful.ReplyDelete
