We didn't get any flower pictures around our yard this week, but did take a few at the cemetery while we were there.

Bloomin' Tuesday!

One of the Columbines has opened. This is one of my favorites. I just love the color.

The Bachelor Buttons have opened also.

I took this picture of Payton picking Forget-me-nots at Grandma's house. I just love the look on her face. She made sure all of us got a flower.

Jerzie is posing for me in front of Grandma's Forget-me-nots.

Have a great Bloomin' Tuesday!

Sad But Necessary!

The Maple Tree in our backyard has been diseased for quite a few years. It has been getting worse every year and has been growing fewer leaves each year. It had mold growing all over it and was starting to rot.

The spot where it was rotting was right in a "V" about 6 feet from the ground. The section of the tree that we were afraid to have break off was roughly 40 feet tall and would have landed on our neighbor's house and garage if it decided to go.


So we decided to have it taken down before anything happened to it.

The company that we had take it down did a great job.

One guy climbed the tree and made very short work of it.

It was interesting to watch the way he climbed around the tree so easily.


I am going to cut up the bigger logs to use for firewood on our next camping trip.

I will be taking the brush to the yard waste dump on Saturday.

Laurie and I started cutting up the brush last night.

The first of several loads to get rid of.

Bloomin' Tuesday!

Happy Bloomin' Tuesday

One of the few Tulips that the moles didn't get to.

Our Bachelor Buttons are getting close to blooming. The ants are all over them for some reason.

We also have some Columbine that is starting to bloom. It will be everywhere before we know it :)
