~~These lilacs grow between our back side yard and the neighbor's home and next to our garden shed. They create beauty and privacy at the same time.
The little picket fence in the background surrounds our neighbor's vegetable garden.
Our view from the back of our property across the lake and out to the Cascades.
Watching a thunder storm roll in. Five minutes after I took this photo the lightning was flashing and rain was pouring down.
The golden chain tree in full bloom. The gravel drive leads past the neighbor's home in front.
The rhododendron in full color in the back corner by the Dogwood tree.
Looking out across the back to the fruit trees on another rainy afternoon. As you can see there is still much weeding left to be done!!
Finally, there is nothing more beautiful than these two blossoms my beautiful granddaughters, ages 3 and 8 months. Since we couldn't celebrate together at Easter we had a family celebration and May basket egg hunt on Mother's Day.
May each of us bloom in the place the Lord has planted us, and may the Lord bless and keep each one who comes here.
