Wishing all my blogging followers a blessed Easter.  Once again for some reason I cannot post pictures and I had some that were very nice for this Easter containing the real reason we celebrate this Easter.

I have 88 azaleas bushes around my house.  Pictured are some them.  Enjoy. 


This last picture is of the wet weather creek in back of my house.  Click on pictures to enlarge them.

My wisteria bush has more blooms then ever this year.  It just came up right in the middle of my cactus plant.  My husband used to baby it and now I do.   The dogwood tree is one of my big ones  the others are small but are also in bloom.

I  just had to show off some of the lovely what we call red bud trees that are blooming in my back yard.  I do not know why they call them red bud trees because the flower is more of a dark pink color.  We also have our dogwood trees blooming and I have some azaleas starting to bloom and when they are in full bloom I will post some pictures of them.  Also the wild iris are blooming.

                                                            Another Sure Sign

                                                           By Evaleen Stern

               When pink-cheeked on every hand little girls are seen to stand turning skipping ropes, -
                swish - swash!  While their laughing playmates run jumping over, - oh, what fun!  Swish -
                swash! Swish - Swash!  Two and two now, see them dash! one, two, one, two, round they
                scamper, softly thought, swish - swash!  Such merry  skipping, one, two, some one is
                slipping !  Oh, she's out now and must pay turning rope while others play!  See the bobbing
                golden curls, little skirts in rhythmic swirls rising, falling to the beat of the little skipping
                feet!  When these pretty sights appear, it is surely very clear April's here!

               The first of April, some do say, is set apart for All Fool's Day.  But why the people call it so,
                nor I, nor they themselves do know.  But on this day are people sent on purpose for sure
                merriment."    ~Poor Robins Almanac, 1790~
