Mom bought a grape plant last spring, hoping we'd soon have a nice little vine with grapes in our future...due to lack of water (heh...the container gardening thing really does require watering...should've gone by the books rather than just doing the "wait and see" thing *sheepish grin*), it died. Something prompted Mom to insist we keep the thing...and look what we found this week:
Buds of promise!
I started a ton of my seeds about two weeks ago, and this is what I'm seeing:
I love taking pictures of raindrops on flowers...I had plenty of opportunities last week! :)
Buds on trees...just screaming, "Spring is coming!" :)
I had fun experimenting with different focal points on that branch :)
My personal fave of the four
I have a love/hate thing with Bradford Pear Trees.
Love=the gorgeous blossoms
And the cute leaves ;)
Hate=the horrible smell *wrinkles nose* When it's raining, though, you can't smell it, so it's a perfect photo opportunity!
The heavy rains sent tons of the flowers sailing to the ground
Out of focus
up-shot of the girls in the rain
"Turn the exposure up, Sarah"
"What in the world is the exposure?"
After showing her, she ended up turning it down instead of up. lol Oh well!
McKenna with Micah
She had my camera for awhile...when I found this one on there later I just had to say, "AWW!!" My little buddy! :)
One of the girls sent this poor daffodil to a watery grave...it made for an interesting picture, though!
Mom was gone with Moriah on Saturday morning, so I was in charge of breakfast. Micah sat on the counter watching me make the pancakes, and asked if he could have a "wittle" pancake....sooooo I made him some mini pancakes. :)
We made Bob and Larry (from VeggieTales!) out of playdoh...
And Junior and Laura! :D
Now you are all aware of this important warning! ;)
I'm only including this last picture because SarahW asked me to, very nicely. With her best pouty face.
She was playing with my hair and decided to make me look like Suzy Who from Dr. Seuss! It was pretty funny, though I'll admit I was a little self-conscious walking around the neighborhood with my hair looking like that. Everyone who commented on it mentioned Dr. Seuss, so she got her point across well. ;) I'm going to try getting Sarah's hair (which has gotten REALLY long!) to stand up like that...we'll see how that works out! ;)
