~ Spring Whites ~

Each evening when I take a walk I'm amazed at the beauty that surrounds me. Living in town, having 40+ acres and 3 lots we have the best of both worlds. The country life along with being able to jaunt into town quickly for some necessities.
The last 4 years have brought many changes around here. Having worked outside my home along with running my own shop and taking care of the construction business to say I was busy is an understatement. I took it all with a grain of salt attacked each task as they came. Two years ago I decided to quit the second job to stay home to care for Mr. P. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I'm afraid if I hadn't, he would be in a rest home or worse. All of us need to take the time and enjoy the things around us, Mr. P's illness' has taught me that and so much more. So.... evening walks with Mr. Murphy dog are called for. The walks help in so many ways, I keep my girlie figure, enjoy Mother Nature and the antics of Murphy.
Along the East fence row trees are plentiful. Their beauty is astounding. This year more so than any other I noticed the trees with beautiful white blooms.  I have to admit I've seen the trees each year with all the white blooms and didn't have a clue what they were. Mr. P in his quiet manner said they were locust trees. The fragrance is incredible.



Come in for a closer look at these  "gorgeous" blooms.





As the rain drops begin to fall I'll leave you with one last shot of the locust across the lake. As the petals fall into the water only to float away, leave behind the reminder to take the time to enjoy your surroundings.
Thank you stopping in to say hello. Your sweet comments always touch our hearts. It is because of you I do what I do. Until next time...

You DO have the best of all worlds going on there! I love my neighbors, but it would really be wonderful to be able to spread out a little more and enjoy absolute peace and quiet, commune with nature. I never knew what kind of trees those are, either! I see lots of them in the wooded areas around here.

Lynne, your property is simply stunning. I have four acres, no lake, but I love it. So I can only imagine the paradise it must be at your home. Simply stunning.
May God bless your home.
