Photo of the Day: A New Bloom

I planted a few lily bulbs last year, and they did ok at best. This year they grew to about four feet tall, and their blossoms are probably eight inches around. They’re huge…and gorgeous!

Photo(s) of the Day: My Flowers

Here are a couple of pretty flowers from my garden. The first was a Mother’s Day gift, the second was a rose-bush planted before we moved in.

Photos of the Day: Blizzard of Oz

I’ve heard the snowstorm that blew through the Midwest yesterday referred to as the Blizzard of Oz. We have crazy weather in Missouri, but this was a lot of snow. As in, a foot of snow. I’m so grateful that I was able to work from home the last two days rather than venture out on the treacherous roads. It made the falling snow much more peaceful. I didn’t even mind helping my husband shovel the driveway this morning. Here are a few shots from around our house.
