Want To Take A Walk?

My husband is beginning his second day of meetings in Germany.  We miss him!   Five more days till he comes home. 

One of the things I miss most is our evening walk around the yard, where we look for new growth and blossoms, and talk about our days.

So, I thought I’d take some pictures for him, and invite you to come along this time. 

Come!  Let’s go for a walk!

Purple Plum Blossom

Our Purple Plum Trees are all fluffy and beautiful.  They’re at their peek.

Blue Iris

And these beautiful blue Irises popped open this morning in spite of the gloomy weather.

Crabb Apple Blossom

Our Crab Apple trees are simply beautiful, too.  Their bright flowers are rich against the greening up grass.

Lungwart

And look at the Lung Warts!  They’re are just beginning their show.  I love how they go from blue, to purple, to pink, to white.  Talk about a creative God!

The peepers in the bog are singing, the water is still dripping in the gutters, and our neighbors are using a chain saw.  I love the sights and sounds of Spring!

I love being able to take a walk with my husband half way around the world.  The icing on the cake is inviting you along.

I’m so thankful for the many encouraging comments and emails you all have left this week.  Really.  I’m so glad to have met so many wonderful friends.  I hope to invite you on more walks as spring turns into summer!

Thanks for sharing my life, and for walking with me!  It’s always more fun with a friend.

I’m sharing this walk with friends from three places.  You have all been a blessing to me over the last few weeks.

I'm so jealous that your flowers/yard looks so good already! It's still gray/gloomy where I live.
Hope time passes quickly for you until your husband is home again!

I really need to get some flowers planted in my yard! We had our basic landscaping done 3 years ago, but didn't have plantings due to budget constraints... and then I had twins and life got crazy so I didn't want plants to take care of on top of everything else. But now that things have settled down a bit... I'm gonna get plants by golly!!!

Sarah said...

You must be somewhere warmer than I am, I am so jealous your trees buds have flowered. We've got buds and I can't wait for the tree to be in bloom! I love the few glorious days in spring when our tree is in bloom and our lilacs too. You irises are beautiful. My Dad says flowers are one way God shows us his smile.
