Last Day of Winter

Where does the time go? Life at our house has been anything but normal for the past week. My elderly neighbor's husband passed away and I have been helping her. They were only married a short time, it would have been 4 years this July. He used to live about 150 miles south of here, so when they married he moved and brought a LOT of stuff with him. Now his children want it. This has been so hard on my friend. They came yesterday and now hopefully there will be forgiveness and healing so life can go on. On a lighter note, today is the last day of winter. Our weather here has been beautiful. I went for a walk in the yard this morning and took these pictures. Can you see the bumble bee? I did not want to get into his space to much, and the poor butterfly is missing part of one of his wings so I do not know how long he will survive. Janet, if you are reading this I just want to say I think of you every time I see purple flowers blooming in my yard. Wish you were here, we could sit on the porch with a glass of tea and watch the wisteria feed the little critters.

Yes, I'm reading this!! I would love to sit on the porch with you and enjoy a glass of tea. I would just sit and stare at the beautiful purple flowers. I love wisteria. That's a great capture of the butterfly!!

Your Wisteria is beautiful! Good shots with the bee and butterfly! I posted a butterfly for my Easter post - such a neat symbol of new life!

We are leaving for Southern Utah in the morning to spend Easter with Mom. I'm looking forward to the warmth. We had 47 deg today (which was wonderful) but will enjoy the 70's soon!

You have been a blessing for your neighbor!

Hugs & Happy Easter!
