A Blooming Good Friday







Good Friday Morning to you all! Hope you had a peaceful and safe night. It ended up being a pleasant day here with temps ending up in the mid 70's. I got my "wandering" shoes on and went on a "Spring" hunt with my camera and I was flabbergasted at finding that a Mountain Laurel,(top picture) that we had planted in the front yard bed (about six yrs ago), had finally started to bloom!! My Word I was excited!...but looking around me, I had no one to express my glee to...Ever done that??LOL...makes you feel stupid! Well, you can bet that when Hubby got home, I made sure I shared my "astonishment" with him!LOL...
I also found that my Wedding Wreaths(middle picture) were almost fully in bloom. There's two of those and they "drape". Then I ventured to the back yard and found an old Wisteria(bottom picture) had started to bloom as well. An old farm house was in the center of our neighborhood years ago, and the Lady of the House, must have planted it. It still blooms.

Well, we took the day off today. Several of the employees were wanting off anyway and since it was a tad slow, we just closed the shop. Guess I'll run out to Sam's Club and see what's happening and check out what I'll be COOKING....geez..LOL...for Sunday's lunch. You all have a bright and wonderful day and I'll talk to you later.

Sounds like lots is open on Good Friday there, but very little goes on here so the grocery stores were pretty bust yesterday.

Ooh! What beautiful blossoms. We've just had a hailstorm and we've been threatened with snow for Easter. Should make things interesting...
Have a wonderful Easter.

Dear Donna, what lovely photos. We call the Wedding Wreath "Foam of May" and of course it doesn't bloom here until May! Hope you have a lovely Easter weekend too. Love and Hugs, Margot xx

Hey Mom, I changed my URL site name. Its everydaylifeloveandhappiness.blogspot.com

I noticed that Google engine hits on me WAY too much and just to protect my site I made it a little more difficult to do. Anyone can just type in my name and it pulls up. For people like the EX husband i'd rather not make it so easy. Just change it in your links section and it should change it. Hope your having a good day;o)

Donna said...

Dawn- These blooms are Mother Natures "green thumb"...not mine!!LOL...I also have the dreaded..."black thumb"!LOL...Have a wonderful day!!!hughugs


Margot- It's a tad warmer here so they tend to bloom earlier here. By May, the blooms are nearly gone. Hope your Easter weekend is a happy one!!hughugs


Crystal- OK...I'm 'a changin it!!
