I was out taking photos of my flowering plum tree
for Pink Saturday - when I looked across the street
and all I saw was pink!
"Wait girls! I have to get a photo of
your fun boots!" I called.
"Will we get to be in your book?" one asked.
"Do you mean my blog?" I responded.
"Oh yeah, " they replied.
"Of course!" I said as we took photos of their
Here is my spectacular flowering plum in the
We lost almost a third of it last year with a late snow.
(We were out of town and came home to broken branches.)
The blossoms held the snow and it broke so many branches
off. We had a snow emergency this spring too and I
quickly sent hubby out to shake the branches off.
Just like pink cotton candy! The nursery kids sing a song
called "Popcorn Popping On The Apricot Tree". This
would have to be changed to "cotton candy"
on the plum tree.
Then they told me they wanted another picture
for the blog, not just their feet!
The oldest one is one of my Young Women at church.
girls are the ones who love to come and visit
my fairy garden. The fairies should be returning
soon if the weather gets warm!
One last photo!
I just had to include this one; it made me laugh.
I kept finding these around the house. I am sure this was caused
not by a fairy, but little boys who prefer ears.
Ok, so I didn't plan on getting up
for the Royal Wedding,
maybe it was two posts this week that did it. I woke up at
4:15 Mountain time and decided to flip the TV on and
ended up watching the whole thing. Loved it, loved
Catherine's dress and Pippa's - loved
the modest dresses - some of the hats were a little
too much but entertaining,
loved the carriage, loved the choir and
especially the clergy's message on marriage. I have
to say, I don't know how anyone caught a picture of
that quick peck we waited an extra hour for! Katie
Couric was demanding a repeat and I agreed.
to them! I hope they have a long and happy marriage
like I have had - 32 years in
two weeks (of course we haven't been in any spotlight!)
Most of you said no way
to having a chance at being
a Royal. I agree, I value my privacy!!!
I will be posting this on
