Spring Is in the Air

Spring is in the air! Last night we slept with windows open and it was still very warm in our house. Today we are predicted to have record-breaking temperatures--86 degrees breaking the previous record of  82. Anyway, the darned dandelions are making an impressive appearance out in the lawn. I'm not too fond of them.

I do LOVE the wild violets that have made their appearance. I told dh that he can get rid of the dandelions but please leave the violets. Our violets come in 2 shades of purple--a delicate pale purple, almost white and a dark, vibrant color. Here's a look at them:

DH just mowed the lawn a few days ago but with the rain we've had the grass is looking a bit high.  I hope y'all are having a nice, relaxing Sunday and will have a great week. Hugs to all...


  1. We are having a record breaking high today as well. I hear a cold front is going to move in overnight though. I'm not a big fan of dandelions either (unless of course my son gives them to me). :-)

  2. Been a long time since my sons gave me dandelion bouquets--they're in their 30s now :)It's sweet that your son does that for you. We'll be cooling down next week but it shouldn't be too bad until the end of the week and the high is only forecast to be in the 50s. It actually did break records today at 90 degrees.

  3. Hubby just cut our lawn today. I love a good cut clean lawn it just makes everything look so nice. Love the pictures of the violets that is so cool they grow all over your yard :o)


What are your thoughts? Your opinions are important to me so if you think I am right on or off my rocker let me know.
