Hey! Did you forget about me? I'm sorry for staying away for so long. I think I'm finished being "needy" so off to my regular life I go...would you like to join us this evening???
It's a whopping 74 degrees here, breezy and partly cloudy, low humidity...perfect Louisiana Springtime weather!
After work today, I walked around the house for a bit (with camera in hand) to see what kind of shape old man winter has left my yard. Not too bad I see. The hawthorn bushes above are blooming wildly as I totally forgot to cut them back in January/February.
Oh and I forgot to cut back my wisteria too.
No leaves yet but the purple blooms are putting on quite a show of their own...
Around these blooms, there seems to be new life as we have not one but two little bird nests above our heads...
Which in turn brings this below our feet. (I'm not too fond of bird poo which makes relaxing under the pergola a little well, less relaxing if you know what I mean.
But it was the perfect evening for grilling. I have been longing for this for quite sometime now. (And so has Oreo in the bottom right corner just watching her Daddy so intensely just in case he drops her a pork snack...by accident of course)
So while we wait for the 'grill master' to call "Dinner's Ready", we play with the little one. Back and forth we throw her tennis ball as far as we can and she brings it right back to us. Maybe somewhere in her lineage, one of her ancestors may have been a Golden Retriever. A small one, possibly black? Maybe? Maybe not. She's just a smart little Miniature Pomeranian who is very spoiled.
Thad and I planted these green onions day before yesterday. When we planted them, I cut them all the way down and look how much they have grown in 48 hours!
Oops, dinner is ready. I have to go. Maybe the next time we grill, these green onions will be ready to cut and spice up a potato salad! Yummy!
Hope your surroundings are looking like Spring wherever you are!
