I did it again, didn't I?  I am so neglectful of this sweet blog and I think I just missed my 4th year blogging anniversary.  Yep, just checked, I passed the 4 year mark on May 10th.  A lot has happened in these last 4 years. And no, I am not going to do a "what I have done in these last 4 years"....really, who cares.

- I could write about learning to live alone, but I'm not.
- I could write about changing my faith from Presbyterian to Catholic and back to Presbyterian, but      I'm not.
- I could write about my 2 "kids" (dogs) whom I adore and couldn't live without, but I'm not.
- I could write about finally making the decision to hire a landscaper to clean up my yard and gardens and to do weekly yard maintenance, but I'm not.
- I could write about how lazy and forgetful I have become, but I certainly am not writing about that.
- I could write about my family, youngest granddaughter just graduated from college and my "great-grandchild" is the absolutely cutest and brightest child in the history of ever, but I'm not.

Anyhoo, we did have a beautiful Spring, albeit a might cool at times, but plenty of rain (not as much as my friends in Texas, altho I think their forecast is finally back to sunny and hot).  And we are beginning June with quite a the high 40's this AM. and no, I have not turned my heat off yet. Thinking positive I did take the electric blanket off the bed last week, but the last couple of nights it would have felt mighty good.

OK, about a few pics to show you our Spring....

I never get tired of taking pictures of beautiful flowers and walks in the woods.  And it's like 6 weeks until I leave for Paris, so pardon my giddiness.  Hope all has been well in your corner of the world.

And PS, I haven't been a total slug when it comes to blogging.  I did post on our collaborative blog, Focusing On Life.  Click here to read my summer reading recommendations and click here to get some tips on zoo photography.
