Day 102 - 04/11/14

We were finally able to attend a game today -- actually a double-header.

It was good to have a front seat to the action, but, oh my, it was hot.

It got up into the 80s, which is HOT when you're not acclimated to it.

I don't think the pink dogwoods minded the heat.

Morning dew on the azaleas.

Day 100 - 04/10/14

The Cherokee Roses are blooming along the roadside.

Most climb through the trees and cover them like kudzu . . .

. . . but this patch was just getting established next to a power pole, so I was able to get a closer look.

Day 96 - 04/06/14

Mom's azaleas were in full bloom today.


They received spring showers . . .

. . . and the bees were very busy.

It's truly spectacular when the sun shines after a rain.

I'm not sure what this is.  It blooms every year around Mom's mailbox.

One last look at the fading blossoms.

I think these are either plum or peach blossoms . . . we'll see come summer.

Day 91 - 04/01/14

Blackberries are blooming.

I found a slew of them down by the river.

In a few more weeks we should be able to make some blackberry cobbler.

I've been to the river many times, but have never seen it so high.  The bridge definitely has to be raised when river barges comes through.

Day 89 - 03/30/14

The wisteria is beginning to bloom . . .

. . . the fragrance is so wonderful . . .

. . . it steps out on its own and greets you from afar.

The dogwoods are blooming too . . .

. . . capturing the light so beautifully . . .

 . . . reminding us of the crucifixion of Christ . . .

. . . and shouting joy to the world.
