Marvelous Miscellania

Finally!! The sun showed it's lovely face yesterday and today! What a difference some sunshine makes!
Below are two pictures of the hanging baskets Ed got me for Mother's Day. They are blooming like crazy, as you can see. They are New Guinea Impatiens and I love them!

While everyone around is has been mowing their lawns for the past two days, we are unable to because beneath the tall grass lays a swamp! :-/ It is like this every spring, it seems. We usually don't get the entire lawn mowed until the middle of June! Seriously!
But Ed did get most of it mowed last week, for the first time this year. I think the place looks pretty good! :-) I took these while we were taking Jaylon for a walk one morning OR maybe he was taking US for a walk....not really sure sometimes! :-)

Below is another picture I took while we were on our walk. I just thought it was a pretty scene! :-)

Well, that's about all I've got. I'm going to take a shower and go to bed a bit early on this Saturday night! I've had a full day! :-) I hope the sun is shining where you are!

Looking at your beautiful photos I'd swear I could smell freshly mown grass. Everything looks socrisp and Spring-ful. Beautiful flowers!

New Guinea Impatients is what I put in my porch planter last year and they did great! I'm going to have to get more for this summer; they are really pretty!

We had some rain today, thankfully short-lived. Everything is greening up nicely.

It's so pretty down your way. We are still pretty wet up here. I will say I had some absolutely beautiful lilac bushes this year.
