Spring Has Sprung

Spring has sprung in our neck of the woods. We are complete with potted plants, blooming flower beds, dogwoods and redbuds in full bloom and a yard full of dandelions. We are experiencing a lot of rain right now and are wishing it would go away for a trip to Silver Dollar City and for Gary's turkey hunting. 

Cooper spotted a BEE! It was funny how still he was when he saw it… below is the scary creature.

We have a cat now thanks to our friends Kelby and Martha. Her name is Rikki. This was the first day that she warmed up to Cooper. He was a big fan of it, enough to try to climb under the fence to follow her to the pasture next to us.  I caught him before he made it any farther. I couldn't believe he tried to go under the fence! As you can tell he wasn't happy that I stopped him and that Rikki was getting away.

Next are some shots from the yard, trees, pots and yard guests.

I've always loved petunias. They have such vibrant colors and are so easy to take care of. 

As you can see our yard has a TON of these "fun" wonders…
This picture I took with my phone. Gary took the good ones.

Grandpa- aka: Bapa taught him how to blow them. I don't think we figured out the "make a wish" part yet.  He had a good time blowing them and getting seeds stuck to his face. Not sure how many he ate.

We hope your spring days are blooming with fun. Get outside and enjoy some fresh air and exercise your lungs by spreading more dandelion seeds.
