An early spring

It's only the middle of March and many of the trees are in bloom or finished blooming.  Every where you look there are beautiful flowering trees and plants.

This ornamental pear tree is just down the road from our bank, one of many in the area. You would almost think there was snow on a lot of trees by all the white every where.

With the weather being warmer than normal it is tempting to stop and admire all the lovely blooms. So on the way to the bank I did.

Now we worry that we'll get cold weather again and loose all the fruit and flowers that have bloomed. People with ornamental trees like this pear don't have to worry about loosing fruit. People with actual fruit-bearing trees do.

The early spring has helped our contractor out a lot.  He can leave the doors and windows open while he works on our kitchen remodel.  I am looking forward to getting this completed.  Our kitchen is a bit of a mess right now.

We've been eating out a lot lately :-)

The only tatting I've accomplished lately is a few buttons.  This is a good thing as I want to have as many as possible for International Tatting Day.  My problem now is that I keep giving them away.
