We had a bit of rain and wind last night. Every thing is pretty and clean and the sun sparkles in the rain drops on all of the flowers and in the lawn. Everything is green and oh so pretty. Meadowlarks are singing and the mockingbirds are fighting everything that tries to build a nest in the yard. The blue jays are such a bright blue and the nosy blue jays are keeping their beady black eyes on all the goings on around here.
How about a before and after picture today.
This was earlier this week.
The trees are all starting to get their leaves over here. We lost two trees this last summer. Ron will transplant some of his pines here. The pine trees that he grows seem to be more drought tolerant than some of the other trees we have tried here.
Our youngest grandson turned four last week. When they get to have sleep overs at grandma and grandpas house they always bring a Despicable Me one and two. My favorite part about having them over is letting them make their own pizza and then we watch movies. Ron and I both have fallen in love with those movies. One thing though I have a hang up on is minions. They just make me laugh. This last week, I bought the boys some and I just loved them so much.
On Friday I was grocery shopping and Ron was getting chicken feed and stuff for the lawn. He got home before I did and he helped me carry in groceries and I went in to my room to take off my coat and what should meet my eyes.
It was such a surprise! Such a nice surprise. He said," that every time, I give the kids minions I get so wistful, he thought I should have my own." So he found me some. I still laugh every time I walk by. Best surprise ever!!
I finished my spotted hare rug, last week. Somehow. I don't know when I found time, but I did. I really love how it turned out.

Ron's Japanese Maples that he grafted are coming out and waking up. They are just so pretty and red.
Thank you so much for stopping by today,
