Cheery Blossoms

The cherry tree just exploded with blooms this year. Since Spring has sprung, we've gone quickly from relentless cold to beautiful sunshine, with just enough rain to keep things growing well.

The magnolia tree is starting to bloom now.

Happy Spring, everyone.

Sticky Poetry

I recently got out my Magnetic Poetry board in the class room and the kids and I got busy. Funny how you can pick up words at random and they seem to go together. Totally random? Or a way for our subconscious to reach out and speak to us?

Through the Lens

I finally got around to organizing my Flickr account and uploading my favorite shots. I enjoy looking at the photography of others and appreciate their willingness to share with everyone the beauty of the world that they have captured through their camera lens. The Internet makes it possible for all of us to share with each other in ways we never dreamed possible. I'm always amazed at the creativity of ordinary people.

Easter Greetings

We picked up a nice bunch of lilies just in time for Easter.

Have a good one.
Love each other in honor of the one who loves us all.
We can agree to disagree as long as we agree that
the heart of the message is love.

Happy April Fools Day!

I was only 6 when this happened, so am not surprised I don't remember this great April Fools Day joke. Go, BBC!
