If you haven’t had time to check out my post from yesterday and need a good laugh, go check out the comment section. I haven’t laughed this much in a long time! I’m really enjoying the response thus far! Thank you so much to those that have offered up some awesome suggestions.
Every day the high school bus stops in front of our house to drop off the gaggle of High School students that live in the area. Every day Travis barks at me when he hears it because he thinks it’s Princess Nagger’s bus and his bark is more of a “I can’t believe you’re not already out there waiting! The Bus is here! The Bus is here!” bark. Now if only I could teach him how to tell time so he doesn’t annoy me when he barks every day 40 minutes early.
Spring is really showing its colors in full-force lately. We had much higher-than-normal temperatures last week followed by a wicked storm and cold front over the weekend followed by more ‘average’ and pleasant weather. My apple tree has a ton more flowers on it this year:
I realize that I should have gone up to the second floor bathroom and taken a picture of the apple tree from that angle to get a better contrast but I was being lazy. Maybe this will make up for it:
Last year we had such a mild winter and colder-than-normal spring that it confused the apple tree and we didn’t get very many apples off of it. In fact, I believe that grand total was four. As opposed to 200. I think we’re going to be closer to that 200 mark this year if the weather continues to accommodate the apple tree’s needs. Which means I won’t have to buy apples to make apple wine this fall.
The plants and flowers around the pond are also making great progress:
I need to trim the dead cattail stalks so the new growth of cattails won’t have to mingle with the dead ones. I bet you wish you could have one of those unique plants that looks like a giant yellow mug, don’t you? And are wishing that you had thought to transform a bright yellow plastic tool box into a makeshift filter system. Hubby jury-rigged that until he has a chance to pull the big filter apart and do the annual maintenance. Gotta give him points for creativity.
