Bustin out ALL OVER…

It may not be June yet…but everything is busting out all over here in the desert!

I saw this amazing movie as a child.  It was a night out with my mother, girls night out, I remember her crying and me crying during the movie and I was soooo mesmerized by the dancing.  I knew I was going to grow up and be just like one of those dancers!  I can’t tell you how many times I have seen this movie and…

We have forgotten what kind of tree we planted here just 4 years ago but it is a wonderful shade tree and it has the oddest branches, just before it comes into bloom before  the leaves, it has such strange looking pods and quirky shaped branches.linda feb 25 027

But when it does BUST OUT  we have amazing shade…

May God multiply your kindness right back to you!!
I love meeting people who spread joy!!

I am so jealous of your beautiful green velvet lawn. Bob has quite the green thumb. Hopefully we will have green grass soon too. Love your blog but gave me a bad case of Spring Fever, I may have to call in sick tomorrow.

It's A LOT warmer where you are than here! It's still very cold in Belgium. Yesterday was a very sunny and bright day, but today it is gray again! No blooms here yet!

Country Girl said...

Wow. It's this warm and beautiful in Utah? I had no idea! Nice shots.

I think you've got quite a bit more spring going on than Oklahoma!
LOVE your rainbow photo!
It reminds me of you...all bright and colorful and full of hope.

Hello Hello
I came on over from Eileen's blog (Umma's World).She did a post on the very beautiful hat you crochetted for her grandaughter. It's good to meet you and your family, you have a lovely blog and I will be visiting again soon.

Eileen said...

Great video, Linda! As soon as I put it on Jayden came scrambling over and hopped on my lap! He loved it too! He liked the 'contest' between the sailors and the 'pirates' as he called them! He said he liked the cool moves of the sailors best!

Your garden and your pictures are lovely and make me long for Spring! The weather this week was nice and int the upper 40's, but today is cold, windy, and rainy, and they promise more of the same for this weekend! Yuck.
I did an Instant Message back to you on Facebook but I think you may have signed off already.
Just wanted to let you know that Mia is still enjoying the beautiful things you made her and she calls the baby doll in the bassinet "Bassinettie"! Her Mom and I tried to call the baby 'Nettie' but she would have none of that, it's Bassinettie!

Thanks again, Linda!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Love to you,

Linda - This is like a fabulous House and Garden tour! Your yard is soooo green! I like the little "skirts" the tomatoes are wearing...

Diana said...

Well Lindalu, you are very lucky to have a hubby that likes to garden! Mine likes to sit in it after I get through with all of the work! Well at least he will do the heavy stuff for me. Your yard looks so lovely already! I am getting anxious to start working out there if this damn ankle ever heals! And go bike riding. It would be fun if we could go riding together! Love Di ♥

Riet said...
