Seasons - Back up and Running

Hip Hip Hooray! - We are back online and running again. - Only one thing...I have a new e-mail address now.  If you subscribe to my blog for e-mail updates you'll need to resubscribe using the button in my sidebar.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

Join Jesh (Artworks from JeshSt.G) for SEASONS this week.  It's been a few weeks since I've paricipated.  We had a super snowy winter and now a super rainy spring so I haven't been outside much and just didn't have a lot to share.



I celebrated my birthday last Monday (March 20) on the first day of spring.  It "rained"....but atleast the sun came out for a few minutes.

We took our annual trip to the Wildhorse Casino on Wednesday....didn't win but came home with some of the money that we took over.  Had a good time though - sorry no pictures.


 The crocus have since bloomed and died but I managed to snap a picture of my mom's before they were all gone.


Went out one night and took pictures of the trees around our neighborhood .  I liked the different colors.
 
 

 Finally after one of our rain storms I noticed a beautiful rainbow in the sky.  I had to take a picture.  Since we have power lines in the way I shot a close-up through some trees.  -  I used this photo for a 52 Frames assignment on (Details).  I love the colors here and the detail of the budding trees.

Have a great week.

  14. Welcome back and what a wonderful return spread ... all of it! Spring certainly has had a head start in your neck of the woods ... we are still pretty dreary, but starting to see green stuff pushing up and in the woods there are wild flowers blooming. Can't wait for the weather to warm up and the sun to start shining again. As for birthdays, I am ahead of you in days (March 14) and in years, I am sure, but a birthday is a birthday ... Hope yours was wonderful :)

  22. Happy Belated Birthday Ida! Beautiful cake too! Love the new look of your blog, and how wonderful to have your computer issues resolved! That can be so frustrating to deal with. Your season is way ahead of ours! I just saw the first heads of tulips coming up in my garden today! It is exciting to see everything begin to bud out though. Spring is coming :) Great pictures!

  25. Love your photos here Ida! Happy happy belated birthday! We have rain too. Too many people get so upset over the lack of snow. We usually have rain to make up that difference. I trust God anyway not people. I have a new e mail too. It is 53strait@gmail.com in case blogger still refuses to switch it! It was nice of you to visit me. See you soon. HUGS
