New Grandparents!!

Kaylie Elizabeth, our first grand baby is HERE!! She is absolutely beautiful!! Mom & Dad are doing fine and are really enjoying being blessed with this new little life. Grandma Judy will be going to see them in a couple days. Grandpa Norm and Weagle will be staying behind to "take care" of the homefront and supervise the exterior painting project, which is about one-fourth completed.

Spring has Sprung!

April is here! The flowers and trees are blooming. New flowers and perennials are being planted daily. This is the most wonderful time of year for Judy and her love of flowers.

The wait is short for the arrival of the first hummingbird of the season. Surely transients will be stopping by for a "hit" to carry them through the rest of their journeys north. Our resident little jewels begin arriving about the last week of April. With the warm weather we've had, we're hoping they arrive even earlier. Judy's feeders are filled and ready for dining.

It sure was refreshing to smell the cut grass last week. And though the job of cleaning the pond and waterfall was not pleasant, it looks beautiful. The waterfall is cascading, bubbling and providing a perfect bathing spot for the songbirds. Judy has just added some new copper tulip-shade landscape lighting. When you visit, be sure to walk to the back to view the waterfall and pond in the evening.
