Bonsais on Friday

Here are my random thoughts this Friday:

1.  Last week on Spring Break I took the boys to visit somewhere new for them and me.  It was much cooler than I expected.  Here's a sneak peek:
 2.  Remember last week when I said something about the last snow?  I'm never saying anything about that again.  Because the same day that post went up, we got an unexpected snow.  In April.  I had to drive home in it and saw several nasty wrecks.  I was glad to make it home safely.

3.  Some of the bulbs I planted last fall are coming up.  This makes me happy.

4.  I will be busy today and tomorrow with a yard sale/fundraiser that the parents of multiples club does twice a year.  The boys are excited because I always get them each a new toy.
 
5.  I bet at least one of my readers knows exactly where this picture was taken!

Linked today with Nancy from A Rural Journal.

Cute pic of the boys! GA is famous for having April ice storms. I hope your weather warms up soon. That's great about your bulbs! Enjoy the weekend.

Snow in April is not fun. I don't know where that photo was taken but think it's neat that the fingertips are green :)

The photo of your boys is adorable. I'm hoping we're done with snow, but fingers crossed on that one. The place you visited looks like a lot of fun. :-)

What is Mother Nature Thinking???
Our weather is certainly full of surprises.
Bonsai Trees? Do you have one? I keep thinking i could give it a try.

Where IS that picture - that looks like a Garden of hands . . ???

Happy 5 Day!

So many people are getting unexpected snow, it's crazy. It's cold here again so finding it would not surprise me, luckily today we are snow free.

I love the photo of the boys. They walk with such purpose! The April snow was incredible, wasn't it? But this week it has gotten too hot for me already.

I don't know where that photo was taken, but it's very interesting!

Looks like a bonsai farm. They are so amazing. I have always loved mini things. Just look at that trunk!

My Journey With Candida said...

I might have to get myself a bonsai tree. I have always liked them, just never got one.

Hopefully the snow is over for the year!!

Ginny said...

WHERE, WHERE????? I want to GO! It does look a bit like Louis Ginter, but I don't think you would have driven to Richmond...I LOVE this, are you going to keep us waiting all weekend to see the rest? Good grief, are these really TREES?? Tree art?

Love those Bonsai's.. They look like they are hands waving.. Bet they wouldn't grow in Iowa.. I would love to have them planted next to the fence by my driveway.. I would paint faces on them ...
I don't think I have ever seen these plants.. they look so cool..
Your boys are growing up so fast.. i love to take pictures of my family walking or running away from the camera..
Have a great day~! You are such a great mom...ta ta for now from Iowa:)
