Finally!  A little spring-like weather and some flowers popping up here and there.  (Although it’s back to rainy, cold, and windy today.)  Yesterday, I took some shots of Nickie in her garden areas at the cottage.  We actually got quite a bit of yard work done, and even took our first paddle-boat ride of the year.  We’re gradually getting some outside work done at home, too, and on Mother’s Day Nickie and Jennie will hit the garden store and do some planting (weather permitting).  Soon we’ll be preparing for our journey to Washington state.  We’re not taking our laptop, so we won’t be blogging until after we get home.  And then we’ll be busy with several rehearsals as we prepare for a big choir concert on May 31.
