So Many Signs of Spring #1
I did go to the botanical gardens for a spring walk last Sunday afternoon. My intention was to share my walk with you, the things I thought about, and the things I saw.
But life isn’t going that way. As I write this, I am less than an hour away from my daughter arriving for a long weekend. She’s working from our house the next few days (and I’m working too), but we will have her all the way through Sunday. Yippee!!
I’ve got the bed made up for her, some cooking done for my lunch, and am now taking a few minutes to let you know I’m not sure I’ll be posting much these next few days. If time permits, I’ll put up a few pictures. Otherwise, I will be busy trying to win Scrabble with a child who knows as many words as I do.
Of the many pictures that I took on Sunday, this was the one that best signified Spring to me – tulips and a robin.
Have a great week!

Pretty picture! A Scrabble duel, the best!
Thanks for the compliment! She kept asking if I wanted to play, but by that time it was after 11 pm and we were both too tired. She just wanted to see if she was going to beat me.
My daughter, granddaughter and I love to play into the wee hours. At some point everything becomes hilarious and we get to laughing uncontrollably. Haven’t done that in a long time, hard to do when she has little ones who want to be up early.
My sister and I used to do that when my daughter was a baby. We’d lay her down on the floor, then play games until dawn. The next day, we’d take turns watching the baby so the other guy could get some sleep. It was fun, but I can’t imagine doing that anymore.
I’m glad you shared your tulips. Mine didn’t make it this year because we had too mild of a winter, although they did send up leaves which means the bulbs will be ready for next spring! That is, should the weather cooperate! ;)
Happy Spring to you and your daughter.
And Mary – the same to you & your family as well.
Enjoyed the flowers and the robin. :)
Don’t know if she remembers us, but give her our greetings. Enjoy!
Thanks Jane! Yes, she remembers you. Jaimie was the reason she learned sign language all those years ago. She said hi back to you.
Have a wonderful time and blessings to all!
Thanks Ellen! It was truly a blessing that she could come for five days. We had so much fun.
Thanks for sharing the tulips. Always good to find bloggers making ‘real life’ a priority. Enjoy your daughter’s visit — the blogger-sphere will go on in your absence.
You are so right. . . as always. Thanks for the encouragement to have a life.
Love the tulips and they’re PINK!!! oh, and have fun with your daughter… who wins scrabble??
Those tulips were really great, weren’t they? She wins the Scrabble just slightly more than I do. If I wait until 11 pm to bring it out, my chances of beating her increases :)
Enjoy your special time.
Thanks Paige! I did enjoy my time with her.
I love Scrabble. I hope you have a wonderful time with your daughter.
I very much enjoyed having her for the week. Scrabble is great, but we do need to be reasonably awake to do a board that makes sense!
Enjoy your daughter’s stay. There is nothing more precious.
You are so right – having a good relationship with our adult children is a most precious thing to savor and enjoy.
