Holiday weekend! No fuss!

Okay so on these kind of weekends we locals don't mess much with the big stuff (boats etc)so Granddaughter Melissa and Grandpa and of course myself packed lunch and sat down by the water and watched all the crazies come and go(smile) Just a nice relaxing day, lots to laugh at and a real good swim. Doesn't get better than that.

Happy Spring...were blooming! yah!

Okay so here is the story....we know for sure that spring is here when we start seen these yellow flowers along the road ....they line the hiway going into town it is really neat they and in bushes on both sides of the road just always asks are they poppies! lol
Also all the hills around us have these bushes full of yellow flowers and you will also see bushes of tiny orange ones....the bloom for quite some
Then mixed in with that you get some coral looking stuff that is all bushy but yet it is pretty when you see bunches of it.....
My favorite of all is the cactus that just gets tons of buds on them and blooms these really bright pink flowers that are really gorgeous they are all over
So you see God loves the desert too because he has really put some very pretty things out we don't have grass and lots of trees but I am planting them and maybe one day there will be all starts with one at a time...just like life if you want to accomplish great things you can and it just might start with a small effort a little at a time ! Love you all
