Random Acts of Blogging – Lately Around Here…

 

Hello!  Here are some photos I wanted to share with you of things that have happened in my little world lately.  :-)

We had an ice storm at the end of February that gave us these pretty icicles along our eaves.  Since we don’t get much snow in these parts, I tend to photograph whatever “frozen stuff” we do get. :-)

Doesn’t this chocolaty dessert look mouth-watering?  Strange to say, it wasn’t.  Neither my husband nor I were very impressed with it, and neither of us are particularly picky eaters.  I invented this myself, but it was a dud.  Oh well.  Some you win and some…

I asked my husband to pick up some flowers one day when he was doing the grocery shopping.  I expected him to bring home a small bunch of inexpensive flowers such as button carnations.  Instead he came home with these beauties!  He said all the other flowers looked “scrappy”, so he got a more expensive bouquet!  I was not complaining. :-)

One evening recently some of us cooked our supper over my brother’s portable fire pit.  It was a lot of fun!  Here my husband was helping get the fire going so that we could cook hot dogs and sausages.  The night was lovely – just the perfect temperature for being outside by a fire.

Another day a friend came over with her children and we had a nice visit.  Here is “Big Brother” looking at the chicken yard.

“Little Sister” had a grand time playing with some of my soft furnishings.

Some sure signs of Spring:

Evening Primroses

A Quote from my dad:
”I love these flowers. They tell me winter is past, even if we get another cold snap. Also, you have to see them late in the day which gives you one last cheerful message from God before dark.”  - Steve Van Nattan

    1. Clara, I love the colors in that bouquet too. :-) I like those purple daisies or asters as filler in some bouquets better than baby's breath. I'm allergic to baby's breath for one thing, but I love the color they add.
      I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures.

  4. The bouquet from your husband is beautiful. Evening Primrose has always been one of my favorite perennials. My late husband and I used to sit in our garden at the end of the day waiting for the moment when they would open. A fond memory. Thank you.

  6. So many pretty flowers, I love them all. That bouquet from your husband is just gorgeous. The colors are so vibrant. It snowed here, again, today. It doesn't really feel like spring yet. t am so ready for warmer weather and some colorful bouquets of my own! :)

    1. Thanks. I love flowers.
      I'm sorry to hear you had more snow there. I lived for years in Michigan, so I can really relate. I never knew if my birthday would be snowy or not. It's the first week of April, and I was actually born in the biggest snow storm of that year!
