Sends a tide of sweetness, washing over the beaches of our lives. They bloom for such a short time, but they are such a joy while they do.
I'm glad we moved the dwarf pink one up from town. Wish I could remember its name. I bought it years ago with money I made taking care of a neighbor's horse for a while and it is a favorite. Hope the shoot from it we planted for Jeffro does well and blooms true.

Yesterday was packed with doings....cows out, cows in....all two of them. Sick calf doctored on. New kittens fussed and fooled with. My middle name is "sucker" now, as Becky has two of them up in her room. Oh, well, she works hard, but if I smell cat, there will be two new occupants in the barn.
Liz planted some garden while I watched little miss cranky pants. She didn't have a real good day yesterday. Something was hurting, tummy ache or some such thing, and she was not a happy camper. Poor little girl.
Then there was the voting. School budget and board. Glad to see that a local farmer and the father of Alan's best friend was elected. Common sense and business experience is a fine thing in politics and we see way too little of it.
Came home to a good dinner, monster burgers, a Northview recipe and family favorite, and then got to talk to my boy for a while....always a good way to end the day.
His pic was in an area paper, during the tractor cavalcade in the Duanesburg Memorial Day Parade. He is the guy in the orange hat, and the lovely lady behind him is his fiance. Of course we are delighted that he is engaged to a girl who can drive a tractor.....
There it is, all the news that's fit to print......enjoy this lovely, sunny day, for I fear the rains are making a comeback.
Oh, yeah, I forgot...this happened too, right behind my folks' house!
