Flowering Dandy's...

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Oh how I love this tiny little window of the year when our "little" tree out front looks like this!! It annoys the crap out of us 11.5 months out of the year being planted smack dab in the middle of our yard - in front of the ONLY west facing window in our entire house - but right now, for a few glorious days - the tree not only LOOKS fantastic but SMELLS fantastic too!
Cross your fingers that the winds and the rains stay at bay just a smidgeon longer so we can enjoy this beauty for a few more days! Yesterday the wind/rain had blown a some of the flowers onto the ground and poor little H - she wanted to pick them all up for me!
*sigh* if only we could.
(and DANG! Is that really our yard?? My hubby has our yard lookin' pretty darn GREAT right now if I do say so myself!)

We also discovered THIS in our yard...what's up with THAT? Have you EVER in your LIFE seen a dandy like this? Check out the difference between your "average" dandy and the whopper on this beautiful bunch!! I can't help but wonder if our dog on steriods happened to drop a load in this spot in the yard - resulting in weeds on steroids?? Jeepers Creepers!
