Back In the Saddle Again....

I got to not work Saturday- such a novel concept! I slept until 8:00 am, went to the bank, the dump, got hay, got coffee and- drum roll please... I even stitched! for about an hour, then Ernie called to say he was coming up to put a new shoe on the horse-YAY! Then I got Bob, we had supper & watched TV, then brought Bob home, then rode and she felt great considering she was stall-bound for 3 days. I rode again tonight and she still felt good- nice slow sweet canter, not racy at all. Rain the next few days are going to screw things up at the barn- everyone will want to be inside riding- GGGRRR!

Here's Snowflakes:                                                                                             

LHN snowflakes 8 I finished the house except for the chimney, and ended all those straggly flosses, I had just gone under with that last brown one & Ernie called so I had to put it all away.





I love this tree:

The house is slated to be torn down and this tree has to go as well, as do these ones:

Main st pair

I've wanted to get photos for years, and finally had a camera, and the "economic turndown" has stalled the project, so I can enjoy the trees this spring. Cloudy morning today, though, but I wanted to get a picture before the rains came and washed away all the petals.

My crab apple is going to blossom this year- last year it was too stressed by caterpillar damage and drought.CA blossums

Hopefully, they'll wait to pop after the rain!

Lovely stitching! Your photographs of the blooming trees are awesome. We have had crummy weather here & not much is in bloom. Our Magnolia did ok, not much else.
