Porch-sitting in spring.
Neighbor's gorgeous tree is bursting with blossoms.

First scoop of the season!


  1. These are so awesome -- I just love that porch with the tree in bloom.

    1. Thanks, Diane. I'm still amazed that I can take decent photos with my camera! BTW, that tree has finished blooming. Wish it lasted longer!

  2. Y'alls weather is as wonky as ours!!! Great pics, Les. How was the green smoothie?

    1. Yep, and we're due to get severe weather tonight. I would love the rain, but can do without the potential threat of tornadoes!

      The green smoothie was surprisingly delicious! I couldn't even taste the kale. I also use spinach if I'm too lazy to tear up the kale.

  3. SO much fun to see these!! 'Scher's Small Batch!' Is that real???
    The blossoms are amazing, amazing.

    1. No, the Scher whiskey was a gift from a friend. He made the label for a bottle of Knob Creek. :)

      Yes, the blossoms were amazing. I only wished they lasted longer. At least now we have some lovely shade for our porch.

  4. Great photos and such a cool peak into your life right now. I think you've been enjoying your wine!!! Snow on May 2nd and in the 80's this week...don't you just love this weather?

    1. Glad you enjoyed the photos, Staci. I haven't done very well with Andi & Heather's Estellagram meme, but I thought I could still try to post some of my camera photos every now and then.

      Yes, I've been enjoying too much wine. :) I don't sleep well when I do have a glass or two, though, so I'm trying to give it up.

      Crazy weather, in deed! And tonight we're due for severe thunderstorms. Could use the rain, but not the potential for damage!

  5. Hurray for Zesto!

    1. It'll do in a pinch. I prefer Ivannacone.
