Well, we’re back to that Sunday ritual again!

Yes, Alphonse, yet another cold front is rushing in tonight to take the Sun out of Sunday and drop the temps down to the near freezing marks. That means rain, storms, hail and winds. It also means the end of our two and a half days of SPRING in which we have been basking. And just when I discovered flowers blooming in my yard. First the back part of the yard which received a fair share of rain and snow this winter is totally covered with Lamium amplexicaule. You might recognize it as henbit.DSC09612

They say that this fast growing green weed with tiny blue flowers is an edible green in Europe served with a crisp bacon and sweet and sour dressing. I’m not going to try it out. I not going to try eating it, because the area where it is proliferating is where Mlle. Renee leaves her daily deposits. I guess you could say she fertilized it good.

The other flowering plant I discovered growing in a crack between the driveway and the foundation of the house.DSC09610

What were you expecting besides dandelions?  The real spring flowers … tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths are just sprouts of an inch or two in height.


The ant I created out of origami folding paper came out looking like a pre-historic version of and ant.Ant

I have several Rose Of Sharon shrubs going around the house and they must produce a lot of sweet necter because the attract a lot of bees, butterflies and ants.ANTS

It’s like an ant parade from the base of the plant to the top of the buds and flowers.

THURSDAY was NATIONAL SIBLING DAY  as well as THROWBACK THURSDAY I didn’t forget it, I just couldn’t find the photo of my brothers and me.3 Sons_2

And when I did, I also discovered this photo of Mlle. Renee and me. It was taken a couple of days after she adopted me.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA


And if you think that picture was bad, try this one.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And I still have that shirt, too! Guess I’ll have to wear it to dinner next Sunday with a bow tie and a white blazer.

  1. Dandelions are one of my favorites … and I love the pic of you and crazy girl!

  2. Reserved she may be, but she was full out laughing with joy in that photo. She knew she’d found the right home.

    Okay, after weeks of not being able to carve out blog reading time, I’m about to marathon yours, so forgive the tons of outdated comments you’ll read.

    And I love the origami ant.
