It has been awhile since I've had time to write on my blog. I've just been very busy and then too tired at night to sit and write.
Our granddaughter, Katie's final Choral at Bridgewater Raynham High School was held May 16th. Katie will be graduating high school next weekend, and then she will be attending Assumption College in the fall.
I also got to visit with my godmother who was visiting from Florida. My godmother, has been my mothers best friend since they they were 12 years old.
This past week I was at my parents house everyday. For the past two days I took my mom, dad and aunt to plant flowers on all the family graves for Memorial Day (New Bedford, Fairhaven, Acushnet, Carver, and Middleboro. I still have to put flowers on the graves that are on Cape Cod.
There was a family party last weekend for Bella to celebrate her 2nd. birthday.
Thursday, May 24th was her actual birthday.
Since I haven't had time to create any art, I will share some photos of spring flowers.
I don't know what kind of tree this is, but there is one in our town and saw another at the River View Cemetery in Fairhaven. The flowers are tubular, light lavender. The flowers have a faint sweet smell and the leaves are heart shaped. Both trees I saw were very tall. It also looked like there were brown nuts or something brown amongst the leaves..Can you tell me what kind of tree this is? Click on the photos for a better look.
I'm running out of room to plant things around my yard, but I couldn't resist buying the Peony bulbs. Picture of flowers below. Now to get them planted.
lady slippers in the woods. I use to see these spring woodland flowers all over and now, where I always found them..they are no longer there. If someone picks the flowers the plants won't be able to reseed themselves.
Have a wonderful long holiday weekend. Also a big thank you to all of those who have served in the military.
