Seasons - May Happenings

 So much to do lately with all the flower planting, bowling, end of school activities, birthdays etc...Finally I'm joining Jesh (St. Germains) for SEASONS again.




Recently we took a drive one evening to see if we could spot the Goats that had been released in what is someday supposed to be a Mall here.  It's been vacant for several years now & over grown with brush and just looks horrible.  So the city brought in a herd of over 300 goats to help clean up all the brush and plants so they can begin to start working on the mall again next year.

Here is one of the pictures of those goats.


On the way home we spotted some deer in a field nearby so we pulled into a parking area and I took a few pictures.


It had been raining and after we saw these deer we spotted a lovely rainbow in the sky.

This is my shot that I took. - Coleen had her camera with her and it has a wide-angle feature on it so she was able to capture the entire rainbow.  I'm sharing her photo as well.


Finally just because I think it's pretty I'm sharing a photo of a Golden Chain tree and some Rhododendron's that I took recently while out driving. 



What a beautiful season it is!

Also my new header today is some Chalk Art that Coleen drew last night in our driveway.  I converted them to Impressionist type photos on, www.befunky.com and used PicMonkey to create the banner.

  7. It's an interesting view to see so many goats herded! Maybe I'm not understanding how the goats are connected to the Mall that will be built? Oh the deer are always precious:) But the rainbow is stunning! Many thanks for sharing that in SEASONS - so that means it has rained in your neighborhood? Have a great rest of the week!
