Today is finally sunny after 5 or 6 days of gloomy weather. Everything is green though and the dandelions are prolific this year. I took a little drive in the country the other day and found this field of dandelions.
I don't know what this old car is doing sitting at the edge of the field. It almost looks like someone is sitting in it, but there's not.
My dear beautiful mother passed away Thursday, May 16th. My daughter posted this picture and words on her Facebook page. I cannot say them any better.
"96 years you blessed us here on earth, now those in Heaven are blessed with you for eternity. Love to my grandma who lived a long life but never grew old" Thanks to all of you for your prayers! They mean a lot. Barb
Out at the farm last week this big green tractor was ready and waiting to get in the field. I think it was able to get in on Monday and Tuesday. But now it's been raining for 2 days so it will have to wait awhile longer.
Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day, as did today. I had to go out for a haircut yesterday and decided to take a little road trip. I ended up at Lake Laura near Walnut Grove to see if the forsythia there was blooming. It is just beginning to bloom. I'm going to have to go back in a couple of days.
Next I took a drive down a road I hadn't been on before. There I found Plum Creek Park and this little bridge across the creek. Yes, it is the the Plum Creek from Little House on the Prairie.
When I walked into the woods across the creek I was surprised to see a little field of Snow Drops.
They just made my day!
So I think Spring is finally here. It is suppose to rain tomorrow and get a little cooler this weekend, but right back up to the 70's next week. Things should really start to pop then.
Since the weather has been so cold and gloomy and nothing is planted in the fields yet, I went back in my archives to September 2012 for this barn photo. It was taken somewhere near the Twin Cities.
I haven't felt much like posting lately. The only sign of spring is the green grass so there isn't much interesting to take photos of...no pretty flowers, no flowering trees, no blue skies or pretty sunsets. It rained a little overnight. Still no sunshine but the temps are warmer.
