Roses are red,
Violets are blue;
But they don't get around
Like the dandelions do.
~Slim Acres

A weed is but an unloved flower.              
 ~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

 - In the spring I can not help but notice all the dandelions and honeysuckle.  A lot of people don't like them and call them weeds (okay they can get out of hand and take over a garden plot) but I have always found them cheerful and bright!  To me seeing a field blooming full of bright yellow buds and puffy delicate white balls of fluff is beautiful and brings memories of being a little girl and bringing my mom dandelions thinking they were flowers (until my dad started making me pull weeds and I found out they were not desirable flowers) or making wishes as I blew away the fluff and watched it float away in the wind. Lets just hope they stay in the empty fields and grass and not amongst the herbs, vegetables, and big flowers!

Chololate chip heaven!

I needed a sweets fix today so I thought I would make some cookies. I wish I could share them with you all but alas no such luck, however if only there was such a thing as scratch and sniff you all would be drooling I am sure ;0)   just kidding....... but they do taste pretty good!

A walk in the park

A Turtle's Pace

Sometimes its nice to slow down the pace a little and you might just notice the world around you :0)

We were walking around checking out the spring flowers when all of a sudden we see this guy hiding in plain sight

Very shy  turtle!

We finally saw it walk away slowly

Then we saw this guy (he must have just come out of hibernation)

from a distance he looked like a clump of mud but up close he looked like a grumpy old man :)

Tricky fellow! (nice camouflage on this one!)
