BOY...it's been a crazy Spring....

We are having 40 degree weather one day
and 90 degrees the next.





We are having plenty of SUNSHINE....

and all my indoor plants are thriving.....

and the new pool is looking beautiful...
(I especially love this reflection of the palm tree in the water)

BUT....THE WIND....
O MY GOSH...
we always have wind during the spring..
but this year it has OUTDONE itself....


While the weather isn't allowing us to take plants and flowers
out of the greenhouse yet,
I couldn't wait to work on my tiny patio last week....


....after yesterday's wind throwing a temper tantrum....
nothing really hurt...
just messed up....BIG TIME


After seeing that patio in such a mess,
I just went back inside and looked at my pretty roses
and tried to remember that I'd rather have that wind
than fires and mudslides.

April 10th...a Very Special Day

I met Mr. Sweet when I was 21...

We married when I was 22 and he was 26.
We married on his birthday, April 10th
and I always accused him of choosing that date so that he would
never forget our anniversary....😁😁

I received these beautiful flowers on our anniversary this year....


This adorable bowl of beautiful red roses came from a very dear friend.


...and these were waiting for me when I awoke from an afternoon nap...
from grandgirls too sweet for words.

Our girl and boy and their families wishing me so many blessings...
grandsons calling...
grandgirls texting...

And we ALL agreed that his first birthday in HEAVEN
must have been something we can't even imagine.

We are blessed,
bj
