Sweet Shrubs and Mountain Honeysuckle .

It was another pretty sunny day. A little hot but with a slight breeze. I really enjoyed my walk. I saw black berry blossoms, mountain honeysuckles, and sweet shrubs. Nothing else smells so good as sweet shrubs at their peak. I had my camera in hand and made pictures. Wish a picture would submit. In my opinion this is the most beautiful time of the year. I walked around the cemetery. It's part of my extended walk. Birds were fluttering among the tomb stones and I made pictures of them. On my last walk I had gathered flowers that had been tossed in the woods and put them on graves that were bare. Most of the graves are old and most likely there's nobody left to bring flowers. Flowers that are thrown away are still pretty. If I were bringing fresh flowers I would put the used ones on the old graves. Anyway that's what I did today. It was a good one. How was your day.

Spring is starting to show it's pretty colours. On my morning walk I saw pu$$y willows that are almost finished blooming and forsythia that was just starting to flourish. Around my house the hyacinths are starting to bloom and if the weather hanging in there tomorrow my first daffodils will be open. I love springtime. I can't believe it won't let me use the word pu$$y willows....a little creativity was called for.

It's a little crazy that we can't use common words. Our daffodils have bloomed and gone. Forsythia is still pretty and so are azaleas. As for the puzzy willows, I haven't been to the river to check on them. I love spring too.

Yesterday was a good day for me too. Had a great meeting with the Board of the company and we had a great discussion of when our next vacation would be and where. Now it's Thursday morning here and I will be going to my hometown for the holidays. Great to know you had a lovely day.
