My Serviceberry (amélanchier)..was in top form this past weekend..the peak of it's beauty.I love that tree..Lucas' age.
It looks like a big fluffy white cotton candy ball on a trunk.
It lasts for a breath..but it's a breath I crave..every Spring.
The sun came out Saturday and I had a chance to investigate and see what happened over the winter..seems our grass has been taken over by Creeping Charlie..Lamb's Ears..Forget Me Nots and Ajuga..oyoyoy..anyways once mowed it all looked better..
I did weed.. but they come back faster than I can annihilate them:(
Jacques did mow and I was ooh lalaing again instead of oyoyoying:)
Lots of pretty muscari and violets..mini blue hues here and there.
Pretty pinks in another favorite tree..my flowering almond..packed with buds this year!! The whole tree!
Like miniature fairy roses all over it.
I baked a little apple pie..celebrating petals and blooms.
It's as if nature is truly having a coming out party:)
A debutante ball.
The pie is basic..your fave crust..I love Ricardo's..I took 2 apples, a tbsp of flour..cinnamon,cardamom..a dot of butter..
Baked till the under was done..I like that small heart glass dish because it's small,it's clear and I see under..
I am sure the neighbors think I have a problem..I can walk around many times in a day and click click click..because in the span of just a few hours..things have grown:)
I am telling the truth.Watch f you have interest in seeing what happens to a garden in Spring.
Late Saturday turned to ugly..and ugly lingered into Sunday..threats of frost and snow..so the baskets we do have came in..my sicklings..not seedlings..sicklings this year..came in..and the geraniums..the basil ,the potted cherry tomato plant..thing is..we are so anxious here in QC..we tempt fate..and start everything too darn early.
The boys..literally crack me up..Lucas and Oli were over on Thursday..Oli asked if I could put tattoos on him..Me? Of course..I just happen to have the Star Wars ones here..where do you want them..and he showed me his cheeks and forehead..
But mommy could not get them off for school the next day..nor for dinner out at Mamie's the Saturday..so when Max and Oli went out for dinner..(Lucas was at a sleepover)..Oli went just the way he was:)♥
Oh to be 6 again and not give a dang about anything..
Imagine..if you had temp tattoos on your face..who would notice the imperfections?
I have a rubber stamp I use on my family's cards..it simply says:
LOVE YOUR FACE.
Because I do.
Have a great week!
BTW..mommy never tells nana don't do that..re the tattoos..she is very easygoing.
PS..it's 9.35 AM May 16th..and it's snowing:(
May 17th..no snow..:) Added the serviceberry and almond branches so you can see the profusion of blessed blooms!
