So I got up early. In my world, 7:20 is early for a Saturday morning. In my husband’s world, however, it is not.
For those that may be thinking ‘well, why can’t husband pack the car and go to the dump himself?’ well, believe me . . . I’m thinking this too.
But I refuse to let any of this bother me today. Because it feels like spring.
I took these photos yesterday afternoon after my walk. I made myself a Friday night cocktail and took the camera outside to sit by the lilac bush.

If you’re new to this blog, I wrote about this beloved bush two years ago, when a tree came down and split it in half.
If a tree falls in the forest . . .
I have always adored the scent of lilac and was thrilled to have moved to a home that had a wonderful old bush in the yard. And when the tree came down and split it in half, I thought the bush would never recover.
But it is – slowly.
These shots are SOOC (Straight Out of Camera), with a slight texture added.
There are shoots coming from the damaged area of the bush.
And I’m so glad to see that it’s going to produce some blooms again this year. Last year we had so few.
This is the dogwood tree by the house. Its beautiful white flowers will be out soon, but I like how the bare branches look against the house.
Miss Blackie was taking a sunbath and says hello.
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend.
