April 1, 2013
It's five o'clock a.m. and I'm at work. It has been raining most of the night, but it now seems to have stopped. Today is supposed to hit near 60 degrees F, then drop back to the low 40's the next couple of days. At least Spring is trying to poke her pretty head out and smile on us. All my plants are poking up through the ground, and pretty soon it will be time to go shopping for new plants.
Can you believe it is already April? Want a laugh? I've already started putting things into my gift drawer for next Christmas. And I've crossed a few names off my list. Every few years I do this. If recipients have not found the time to say thank you in the last couple of years, I cross them off my gift list and send the money instead to an animal shelter. It works for me.
Last night after the Mrs went to bed, I was able to work on one of my photo class lessons for a while. I also worked on a photo for Mandarin Orange Monday. I was looking through some of last year's flower photos, and found a pretty purple hyacinth. Then I thought how pretty it would look in orange, so I re-colored it and gave it a new background. I'm thinking that these would look rather pretty in my garden.
Here's the original photo, and then the orange hyacinth. What do you think?
Today is also opening day for baseball. I'm hoping that this will be a great year for the Red Sox. It's time for another big win for them. However, win or lose I'll still cheer them on.
How about a photo of one the cute little sparrows that come to the Mrs' bird feeder? It's sometimes difficult to take their photo when they are on the ground because they move so quickly. This photo was taken through the patio doors here at work.
I don't really have a lot of news for today, so I think I'll do a bit of blog reading while the Mrs is still asleep. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
