Seasons - The Dogwoods

Welcome!

Some of you have noticed (thanks Jeanette) that I've been absent from the blog for a couple of days.  -  I had a busy weekend and then on Sunday I started having some problems with my right eye hurting.  Monday when I woke up it wasn't any better and I noticed that my vision was seriously blurred in that eye.  I made an appointment to see the eye doctor that day.
At my appointment I found out that somehow I had gotten a tiny piece of rusty metal stuck in my eye!  -  He removed the ointment and gave me antibiotics to take to prevent infection.  Of course the eye still has to heal but I'm happy to say it's no longer hurting and my vision in it is slowy returning.  - I am trying to limit time spent on the computer though for a few days.

Just wanted to join Jeanette (St Germains) for SEASONS before it was to late to particpate for the week.

It's Dogwood Season here right now so I'm sharing a few photos that I took yesterday of some of the beautiful trees/blooms around the neighborhood.

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. ~George Washington Carver
 
I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. ~e.e. cummings

  6. Sorry for having to go through that! Am surprised it did not hurt (I know because part of my first official job as a teen was to take out splinters, also metal ones in the eye. Am glad it's out now. Many thanks for showing these beautiful blooms for SEASONS:) and hope to see you back between Sunday and Wednesday:) Wishing you a better half of your week (smile)
    By the way, I mostly go by Jesh (shorter!)
