Spring Flowers

Some wildflowers transplanted by my childhood friend. Iris bed before the torrential rains destroyed them

Yellow iris transplanted from a special place....they are doing great!

Being Crazy

I won this little fellow several years ago at a Fine Arts Banquet here at school. Several teachers donated "white elephant items" to be drawn as prizes. A teacher that was retiring donated this and I won it. It has been stuffed away in one of my cabinets at school. Since I was cleaning out my room I gave it to the daughter of that retiring teacher, who is now also a teacher at our school.

Cicada Invasion!

They are coming! The thirteen year cicadas! We haven't had much warm weather, but the little we have had you can hear the beginnings of the cicada invasion! Took this picture the other morning before school....I think it's just awesome how nature works!
Redneck End Table! The dog must not be far away!

A complely ready cicada! Don't you like their creepy red eyes?

Old fashioned roses from the Mae yard arranged in an old test tube thing.

Took this picture down in the field.

Just love the peonies! This is one from by our driveway.

Jack exploring his kingdom. He thinks he is in the jungle!

Another cicada hatching out!
Ok, so maybe I went overboard a little bit with my cicada pictures!

and again...........

Going to try to get outside this weekend and enjoy nature's show.

Flood aftermath

Snapped this pic of a pretty wildflower on our way out.....I should look up the name of it! A muddy mess left by the floodwaters several weeks ago...

Picnic table landed on top of the grill...no big problem.

Will get things cleaned up and hopefully enjoy this place alot this summer!

Easter Rabbit

Two of my favorite guys...

I bought this sweet little Easter Rabbit at the Old Church Market this Spring from a local vendor. I just thought he was so sweet. You can see part of my "green" display in this picture too.....I really need to move on to my next display...which I plan on being centered on the color blue!
