Not much going on down LaLa Lane this week. My daughter's wedding is a couple of weeks away. All the plans are in place. The small details have been or are being addressed. I am feeling confident that things are ready. I may shoot out a post next week with a few more details. However, I've been reveling in the calm this week.
The weather has been nice. Upper 60's and lower 70's all week with some rain. But not enough to keep me from enjoy a stroll around the yard. I took the camera and shot a few pictures of things happening in my neck of the woods. Literally!
Carolina Jasmine.....South Carolina's State Flower
Pines bursting forth....yellow pollen is covering everything.
Dogwoods starting to bloom.
Gambler still stalled, but healing just fine. He's chewing on a little hay snack.
Spooky, our Great Dane...she has one blue eye and one brown eye. She likes to lay in my flower beds on the pine straw.
I finally captured a decent photo of a Cardinal. He was checking out the surroundings so that his little honey could come and dine.
Unfortunately, this little nuisance has found the bird feed, also. So, I'm going to have to get creative to keep him out.
And, lastly....this creature from the devil himself also loves to lay in the pine straw. I saw him yesterday as I was backing out of my garage. Good thing I was in the car with the windows rolled up because if I had walked out and saw him.....911 would have been necessary.
I can't stand them! They scare the bejeebies clean out of me! Mama swears by moth balls. Cliff doesn't think anything works to keep snakes away, but I'm not above trying any and everything I've heard of to keep these horrifying, make-me-hurt-myself, slithering creatures away from my house.
It gives me the shivers just to post the picture!
Wrapping it up, I cleaned out my raised garden beds. Hopefully, this year I'm going to make my garden pretty as well as functional. I've got plans you no nothing about! You might want to stay tuned.
Happy Spring Y'all,
P.S. There may be an adventure happening this weekend. You might want to stay tuned for that, too.
