There are some beautiful trees blooming around town now.
I took a little drive and took photos of some of them.
Here they are………..
This is my neighbors tree with white blooms all over it.
This is my favorite spring-flowering tree.
I don’t know what it is called, so I just call it a tulip tree.
We had one of these in our yard when we were growing up, it is small enough that you can climb it and still be really close to the ground.
And another one.
I like the purple flowering trees, too.
I have some gardening to do today, yesterday Shafer and I didn’t get much done!
The garden is getting exciting already this year.
For me, it’s exciting when ANY plant comes rising up out of the soil that I planted the year before.
Below is a picture of a mum plant that is green and growing.
These little leaves are on a hydrangea that I planted last summer.
This little bush starts out with green leaves, then they turn a dark red.
If anyone knows what it is called, I would appreciate the info.
I have 3 small rows planted so far, lettuce – radishes – lettuce.
Wish me luck!

Okay, this is the last post that I am doing on the cruise.
It is just such a unique experience that I wanted to give it it’s due time.
Every evening at dinner they had a category on the menu of “something that you always wanted to try”. One time it was shark bites, another time it was alligator, they had snails, and sushi. Here is a picture of frog legs, they were good. Of course, I tried this category every night.
They came with the tiniest rolls and butter.
Portobela mushroom salad.
This was our head waiter.
I miss him.
I would love to have a waiter and chef at home on a regular basis.
Oh yes, the waiters sing, dance,
dance on top of things,
Our tables were in the balcony. Here is a picture of the first floor dining.
Did I mention that the waiters danced for us?
We dressed up for dinner every night.
