And there's more...but time does not permit further uploading today! I did get my camera back though (and yes, my mom was glad to see us again). Yesterday I was able to hurry around the yard in anticipation of this mid-month event;-)
One last reminder for the Garden Bloggers Sustainable Living project/giveaway on my blog--the deadline is tonight at 11:59 so get your entries in now if you plan on participating! Over 60 garden bloggers have contributed their wonderful posts for this Earth Day celebration. You still have time...you could win a Fiskars rain barrel--or a pair of gloves from West County, or a CobraHead weeder, or some Green Cure from Garden Shoes Online, or an earth-friendly water bottle from Hip Mountain Mama, or an earth-friendly tote...so hurry;-)
I wish there were more hours in a day so I could keep up with my blogging friends and visit in a timely manner. Have patience, I will be there--despite not having done so in several weeks!
Happy Bloom Day, everyone!
Today I am thankful for spring which brings the flowers that warm my heart and soul.
