April Showers...

You know the saying...April showers bring May flowers...well last week the temperatures around this neck of the woods were well into the Summetime feel...so instead of the April showers making our flowers pop open it was the April heat.  
















My mother brought this lilac to me from one of their trips to Michigan...if we had smell-a-computer y'all would be in heaven right now...this beautiful flower smells as good as it looks....

the azaleas are just starting to pop...my red ones are always the first...you know..cause they're like that...it's all about them....
my bleeding hearts survived being stomped on my the girls and Andrew when he was putting in a new cable run...they are so hardy...these are my pale pink ones...I do think I lost of deep pinks but that's okay cause I can still enjoy these...


okay...she's not a flower but she is as sweet as a rose...don't ya just want to give her a big ole' hug...she'd let you...she's like that...

Got some sewing done yesterday, with the way the pollen was flying around there was no way I was gonna make things worse...so inside I stayed, got a quilt top done, the back pieced and the binding made...once it's quilted I'll share...and yes it is stinkin' cute...

Y'all have a wonderful day....
