Happy Spring!!

I am just popping in to say Welcome to Spring!  We have had a very nice winter, but I know that is not the case for most of the country.  But, even so, I am still ready for spring and some GREEN.  Texas is very brown in the winter.

I thought I would take a few pictures around the yard today to show what's popping up at my house.  My knock out roses are starting to bloom!
 Love the color on these, and I am so glad that we added all of this landscaping to the back yard.

 And a shot of the pond.  If you look hard on the left there is a hint of blue ~ bluebonnets.  If I had the time I'd run down there and get a shot, but not today.
We are back from our fourth trip of the New Year, and getting back in the groove.  I don't know why it takes me so long to regain my stride after a trip!  But no matter how long I'm gone, it takes a good 3 or 4 days to do just that!  {I think it might be age!}

Thank you to all of the wonderful people who stop by and visit here and HAPPY SPRING!!

Love the beautiful colors in your blog pictures. I am in MS and so excited about the spring days to come!

And Happy Spring right back! Everything is blooming here too. It feels like a fairy land. Right now we have dogwoods and a few azaleas and lots of wisteria.

I sure would love bluebonnets. I always envy you Texans with those. Either I don't see them here or am too daft to realize that I do.

And I get the blogging the "cool table" feeling and the time consupmption too, especially because I'm home alone so much of the week.

I have tried to make myself a schedule, but I think as soon as I finish this current teaching stink *Woo Hoooo... Next week!* I'll be able to carve a better one.

Teaching so drains me that a relaxing stroll through Blog Land with all it's adventures and inspiration is too great a temptation.

I'm jealous of all your beautiful flowers starting to bloom! I, also, am amazed by how fast the time flies when I am on the computer. I guess that's why I haven't blogged lately, I'm a little tired of it!! I do like having a record of my family, though, so I need to get back on and do it!

You are soooooooooo far ahead of us in blooming time!!! Beautiful flowers!!!

We had frost on the roof again today. :-( Yuck! Hurry up, Spring!!

I hear ya' on the amount of time spent blogging. I really missed my friends though, when I didn't have a connection in FL. I have to find a good balance, I think. Will work on that.
