(almost) Wordless Wednesday

I'm back. I'm totally exhausted, but I'm back. Actually, I've been back since Monday afternoon but I'm not counting that because I came home, took care of a few things and left again to go see the boys school concert. I'm so bummed. My camera refused to recognize the new card I'd brought for it so I got very few pictures and because I couldn't remember the right camera setting, most of those came out bad. The concert was great though. They did a Broadway theme this year and the kids looked like they had fun. Roger, perhaps more than some, because he spent 95% of his half messing around. Ben, who enjoys these, didn't think he did very well but I totally disagree. He seemed to know all the words and the actions. Afterwards, we all all went out for dinner.

Yesterday, I was so totally drained that I didn't do much of anything. Luckily, I got a good night's sleep last night so I'm a bit more on the ball today. Not much, but I'll take even a little bit. I'm giving myself realistic goals today and going with that. I know a lot of you are waiting for an update about my grandma but I'm going to make that a separate post. I'll just mention here though that she is doing better.

So since it is Wednesday, that means photo day! This week's theme at Sunday Shutterbugs is Fruit. Now, I honestly haven't had time to take a picture of any fruit, but I do have the pictures that I took for last week's theme. Last week, the theme was Flowers. I took the photos for it literally as I was about 10 seconds from pulling out of my driveway. Since I don't have any pictures for this week, I'm going to give y'all two-three for last week.

Purple Flower 2Mystery Flower 1

These are both growing alongside my driveway in the flowerbed there. I so need to track down some gardening equipment so I can clear those flowerbeds out and make them gorgeous again.

OK, those pics are gorgeous! I think I am going to have to put my new camera through its paces by taking some great nature pics this weekend when I am out hiking Saturday.
I will upload them when I get back.

You have actual flowers BLOOMING at your house? Are you KIDDING me? Argh.

Thanks for playing along with Shutterbugs every week....even if it's the wrong theme. LOL

The iris is gorgeous! I have crocus, but I can't wait until my little irises come up.

My Daffodils out front are starting to bloom. I saw the crocuses coming up last time I checked the flower bed across the way. I have my bulbs coming up in the back, but I have forgotten what they are. I want to think they are tulips. My seedlings are doing great. I really ought to put them out, but I don't think the weather is stable enough yet. Maybe another week and I can get the stuff that is in the window in the ground, then move some stuff from the germination tray up into the window. I really want my tomatoes and lettuce to do well. I am growing a salad garden this year if all goes well. Wish me luck!
