Just a Ramble

Out and about today, and remembered someone telling me about 2 old silos that were covered in Wisteria in the Spring, so I went on a mission - with camera in hand. Turned out I was not the only one photographing the beautiful sight. Another woman was photographing them at the same time I was, and I asked her about the history of the silos, but she just said they had been there "forever". Look up at my new header ! :-D Took pictures of flowers in the neighborhood today also, but have not had a chance to edit, delete, etc.

THAT GREEN STUFF: I just know I wasted $5 for an "Express" car wash today, but the "green stuff" took over my car. Had to turn on the windshield washer to see where I was going when left out today, and I looked like a "green alien" going down the street the last several days, so bit the bullet! I have a feeling it will be coated with that "stuff" again in the morning. After the "green stuff" , then the tree "squiggles" (not the technical name for them) that fall out of the oak trees and make a mess. Ahhh! The joys of Spring! I prefer to deal with the "green stuff" and "squiggles" any day over cold, snow and ice. Ahhhhh Chooo!!!!!

Off to bring in these pretty babies in for the night!
Just noticed a couple of typing errors - just pretend you don't see them!!!!! OK !!!!!
Don't know how much I will be around the next several days as my Daughter and a couple of Grands will be here next week for a few days (Spring break).
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Love that photo. What an awesome sight. Green, squiggles, and don't forget the 'helicopters' from maple trees. You bet! So much better than snow & ice. Achoo!

Your header is stunning! There really isn't much prettier than wisteria. The pollen here in Florida is off the charts. I finally ordered my allergy meds...thank goodness for Walgreens!

Wow! Amazing Wisteria! When they say it is invasive it really is but it sure is pretty. OMG, Glenda, you wouldn't believe the tree tassles that invaded our deck and pool. It turend the pool green and we just got it back to normal today. It kept clogging the pump. I was continuously sweeping the deck. Glad it finally stopped coming down last night. Your post is so cute...Christine

Enjoy your day!
