Beautiful colors this morning as the spring flowers are still in bloom. Some have already faded, but others are hanging on with the cooler weather we’ve been having.

Beautiful roses this weekend in Sarah’s booth at the “One Of A Kind Show.” Wonderful two-tone orange roses… oh, and I guess the vase isn’t too shabby either?!

A wonderful purple carpet of wild scillia in the woodlands near the Waveland Golf Course. Sure, we didn’t get much of a sunrise this morning, but we got beautiful flowers! Ain’t nature great?!!!

Wonderful Spring colors blooming all around.
Too bad these flowery days are so short lived.

At least the shamrocks in my kitchen window are enjoying the sun today… while I’m “trapped inside” without my bike AND doing my taxes today. A double whammy!!! Maybe being without my bike will be a “good thing” when it comes to getting my taxes done???… hmmm?… but I do still have running shoes!
