Snapshot . . . . growing like a 'hosta'

Enjoying my one hosta in a pot -
and learning to out-wit our pesky gopher !

Water Dance . . . .

We might have had 14.8 inches of rain in May -
but here in mid June, it's already hot and dry.

Time for the sprinkler water-dance.

Twirling and throwing drops of water over thirsty plants
and filling the birdbath to the brim.

This little house might need a bit of work
 (the painters need a bit more experience - but, I love their flare with color)
Despite of all its flaws - - it's now home to a feathered family.
Who knew birds would actually nest in a 'bird house' !!

A beautiful box, tied with a spring green ribbon --
filled with just ripe pears & apples
Such a sweet way to celebrate Mother's Day 
A cool spring morning
Brown paper bags and a list
Walking trails winding around a pond
Skipping children
Memories made.

Snapshot: rain, rain and more rain . . . .

Rain total for the month of May . . . . .  14.8 inches.

I think we've had more than enough . . . . .and, maybe the 'drought' is over here in Central Oklahoma.
