I did go out to dinner with some girlfriends last night. We did "howl" a little - well.....howl with laughter! The food was great, the drinks were flowing and the company was excellent. I think we need to do that more often.
The thunderstorm that threatened all day never materialized so late in the afternoon I grabbed the camera to capture a few backyard images.
The lilac tree is just ready to burst with blooms. This is the best this tree has blossomed in years. It suffered some ice damage a few years back and looks like it is recovering nicely. I just love the smell of lilacs.
Can't you just smell them?
You know I hate to garden but I am actually considering planting a few flowers this year. I have a bed in the back yard that is a mess of ugly perennials. I wish the Garden Fairy would come over and dig it all out so I could start over. (Do you think that might actually happen? Probably not eh!)
Since there is still potentially one frost left, I will wait another week and then see how I feel about digging in the mud. (Blahh) So, in the meantime, here are some "voluntary" flowers.
I think I have the only camera shy birds in town. The yard is always full of birds - - until I take out my camera. Seriously, as soon as I bring out the camera they just scatter.
There was a bird in front of this birdhouse when I snapped this picture. I swear!! Stupid birds.
