Spring is here, the most "intense" we have had for years, everything is blooming and leafing out (and spewing pollen) at once! My peony bushes have overshadowed the tulips, we have more lilacs than we ever had......and they certainly are popular with the swallowtail butterflies!

This is not my photo, I was cutting a bouquet of lilacs for a friend and was delighted to see the butterfly. But I had clippers, not a camera so I "Googled" swallowtail butterfly and found out that yes, that was the one I had seen ( by looking at "images"). I'm sorry, it has been a few days and I can no longer find the link to the photographer to give credit.

I'd been sewing and working at the store and hadn't spent much time out in the spring air until last weekend. Finally, I cleaned leaves and debris out of a flower bed. It didn't take long to clean....but that exposure to mold, dust and pollen sent me over the edge with my sinus and allergy problems. I became very tired and lost my voice the next, after medicine and a few days rest, I am better!



Remember the little Christening gowns? For a special day in Jamaica?

Yesterday, I received this iPhone photo (below) from my daughter. They are still down in the Caribbean so I was happy to have this quick peak at their celebration. The babies are not too delighted and the parents look tired, but that is to be expected! I love the little bare feet!
