A multi color tulip that leans from the frost. It has such interesting colors that really can't be appreciated without a close up photo it.
I don't know the name of this plant but I believe it would be a shrub it it had enough sun. That will happen now as the trees are gone and it is in full sun. I have seen a shrub like this growing at the school and its height isn't more than a foot tall. I like seeing the wild violets showing in the photo.
The golden privet keeps dying back each year and not really becoming a good looking bush. I would not think our winters are the cause but I guess it must be. It seems futile to keep letting it grow like this and fade back each spring. A twig in the ground does not make a bush.
This is what the freeze did for the lilacs. I wander out yesterday and thought I could smell blooms but then I realized this is the most of it. Visual dead parts of the blooms do tell me that they got to be too cold.
The facetime feature on the iPhone is such a blessing for two grandparents of this little guy. We got a call later in the evening and there he sat looking at us wide eyed and awake. He apparently has his days and nights mixed up for his parents. I guess it is his parents that must be mixed up. Anyway we had a great talk with our newest grandson up close and personal. He is filling out in his face now and we can see more of his true handsome face.He seems like a small little guy as he is 6 pounds in weight. I remember his dad's birth weight was also 6 pounds.
I am at the school today and will be playing the role of a special ed. instructor. as well as other odd jobs to fill in for the school. There is a secretary gone today as well as a social studies teacher and I will pick up jobs along the way instead of the normal special ed. position. It is a bright sunny day after a very light rain in the night. We did not get storms as they faded out in strength by late evening. The wind was unbelievable most of the day on Sunday but we are a little bit windy again today. I hope all are ready for Monday as it is here anyway. Thanks for stopping by today.
