Snap Happy......or not
This is really my favorite time of year because the plants are still small and green. There are no weeds to pull, no dried up stalks of spent blooms, or dry patches that need to be watered. It's all just fresh and new and clean. Gees, I wish it would stay that way.
Hobbes walked the garden with me, but bailed the minute the camera turned on him. And the frog did the same. Birds--well, they were gone the minute they saw Hobbes. Sigh. So, any creatures of the yard went completely M.I.A. just when I was ready to shoot. Now I just have a lot of flower shots--and even they aren't that good. Thank goodness I have my grumpy frog figure to pose for me. It was either that or Joe.
Today is prom for Em. We'll be spending the day getting hair and nails done, steaming the dress and anticipating the event. And after all the money is spent, all the shopping done, and all the errands run, you know darn well those kids are gonna be moaning about all the photos we parents are going to take, right. But this time, I'm not letting them escape.
I'm looking forward to a fun next couple of days as the kids run from prom to parties. Prom is a 3-day event in these parts and so we are anticipating a long weekend of carting them around, wondering what they are doing, and hoping they are having fun. I can't wait.
Have a great weekend, pallies! Happy Mother's Day too! I wish you all peace and a moment to just breathe.
