Today was a beautiful spring day....temperature about 76 degrees....lots of sun....a little breeze.
Now we've had begonias all winter long although we do have to cover them a night here and there if we get a frost.
My redbud tree has been blooming for almost a week. It's so beautiful. I think of my mother when it blooms because it was her favorite tree.
The blossoms are fleeting. They don't last for a real long time but they are just gorgeous when they pop into bloom.
This bush will get leaves and then beautiful Rose of Sharon blooms on it in a couple of weeks.
The hackberry tree is leafing out. It isn't a great tree as trees go; however, it does provide shade.
Little flowers even pop up in the grass.
The neighbors have a couple of pretty potted plants in bloom.
And what was I doing while all this spring blooming and glorious weather was happening right outside the window??????
I was working on our taxes. Yes, taxes. Things were going along swimmingly with Turbo Tax input until I had to calculate the basis for some stock shares we sold this year. Lest you think we are talking big bucks here, we're really talking about two shares. Numerous calculations led to a splitting headache but I think I eventually figured it out.
Now tomorrow is going to be 85 degrees so I'm pretty sure the taxes are going to have to wait.
