A Never Ending Chore

The days are definately getting warmer.   Summer is but a few weeks of officially starting.  The flowers are blooming everywhere.




Of course this means also that keeping them all watered is becoming a constant chore.  At least if I want to keep them looking good.  I think I may  have created quite a job for myself as the summer moves on.



Yet the reward that I receive for my efforts are so well worth it.

Living in Oklahoma, one learns that a spring storm can form in an instant.
Yet soon it passes

Flowers...
are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.

A little bit of Sugar.... a dash of cream of tarter
Mixed with a few egg whites.....



Don't forget the splash of Homemade Vanilla.... ummmm


When all is said and done.....
Sit back relax...... and enjoy a little goodness.

There is nothing more loyal than a furry friend
They never judge, nor do they question your beleifs of thoughts
They just sit quietly next to you listening to whatever you want to say
A true friend indeed.

Emerging slowly from the ground





Their brillant colors show




First blue, then purple and lavender
Up to the sky they grow

How simple with its beauty it stands.
Stately, tall and grand






Each petal together combined in Awe
Admired by onlookers near and far





The Rose by any other name indeed
Would never cease to wonder me

As Spring slowly emerges... the warmth it brings seems to encourage all of life around it to come forth, from the redbud and the cottonwoods





to the mighty oak. 





A multitude of color seems to paint the landscape.  A true treat for the eyes.
