Blooming

A few things are blooming in our yard. 

Purple Leaf Sandcherry in bloom

The Purple Leaf Sandcherry is in bloom.  I need to give it a trim soon.

Double Flowering Plum

The Double Flowering Plum suffered with a few night time temperatures and instead of being covered with blooms it only has a few blooms.

My beautiful Dandys have gone to seed. 

The Lilac has no flower buds.  I have a number of Lupines that have come up, now that will be fun unless they are frozen.  Our weather is cool…Daytime highs in the 50’s and lows at night 30’s to 40’s.

My temperature turned into a real sore throat, and now I have some “fullness” in my ears. I think I may live.  Far Guy has it too but his sore throat is lasting longer than mine did, good thing we have a bounty of food in the freezer.  We have been staying home and resting as needed to recover.

  2. Hope you and Far Guy feel better soon. With all the rain we have been having my grass is growing so fast I can't keep up with it. Flowers are popping up everywhere. Love the Dandy picture.

  5. I figured you probably had a virus. I sure hope the two of you are better soon. I'm glad you don't have to venture out quite yet. Love the pretty flowers, except for that last one. :-)

  15. Bummer for you both. I have gotten to share a coughing cold with the two year old grandson - - he started it. Fortunately I just started taking Singulair a couple of weeks ago or I would be in horrible shape - - - not good shape last night and today - - but I have been worse in the past. I will rest a lot today because walking makes me cough! Muscles under my ribs are sore now, too from the coughing. Very thankful for Hall's cough drops!!!
