{Day 90} Making a suncatcher

Madalyn got these suncatchers for her birthday.  I remember making ones when I was her age!

{Day 89} The Yellow River


We have not had a lot of rain this spring.  Not that I am complaining.  I am so over rain.  BUT.  Some rain to wash the pollen away would be lovely.  Unfortunately.  All this rain did was to smudge up everything.  It's all rather nasty.  (This is the "puddle" that accumulates in my driveway)

{Day 88} Dogwood tree

Our dogwood tree is dying.  Only the lower half has any leaves on it.  It did bloom.  But I wonder how much longer that will last.  What I love about this tree is the holes in it.  Which appear to be havens for lots of birds during the day.  Naturally they all got camera shy when I try and capture their comings and goings.

{Day 87} Let's sing Happy Birthday

The celebrations for Madalyn's birthday continues.  We went to Red Robin for dinner.  Where Madalyn pointed told our server that she was celebrating her birthday.  And that she wanted a Sunday.  And for them to sing to her.  Except when they came.  I am not sure if she was embarrassed.  Or embarrassed for them.

{Day 84} Blue Iris

{Day 83} Wisteria bud

Lots of people think they are weeds.  But I just love them.  I have a plant that winds around my deck.  Last year it grew, but never bloomed.  This year I have these buds.  But no blooms yet.  Even though they are choking all the trees in everyone else's yard.  I wonder if we will move beyond these pods??

{Day 81} Book Signing with Erin Hunter


One of Katie's favorite book series is Warriors by Erin Hunter.  So you can imagine she was quite insistent that we go to the book signing.  What a thrill for her to meet one of her favorite authors.

{Day 78} scientific name: red flower


I got these pretty flowers for a container at our front door.  But I cannot recall what they are.  They kinda look like carnations.  But not.

{Day 72} Planting flowers


We managed to get enough flowers for one section of our front bed.  But there are several more sections.  And several more days of gardening ahead...
