The most common ones are very pale pink, but they vary to darker pink in some places. The buds look like frosting stars.
Monday morning at 7 am the road construction crew was banging and rolling and driving trucks up and down our road. As if the vehicles aren't loud enough, they have that incessant beeping while backing up. There was a roller that went up and down the street and got the whole neighborhood vibrating. It's like an earthquake--the whole house starts shaking, banging, humming, and things fall off shelves or walls. One whole wall of pictures fell from my bedroom wall and crashed into a pile of laundry, nothing broke! Finally, the paving equipment came:
and made us a new road. Well, that was the first coat, anyway. Today they are doing other work, scraping the sides to match up with the edge of the road, working on the other side of the bridge, etc. They will eventually do a finish coat, but not for a while! I think they will be around for a few more weeks.
This morning I wandered around the yard with my coffee and took a few pictures of my flowers. We had rain yesterday and through the night. It's still cool and cloudy.
I'm hoping it will warm up so I can soak my feet here:
and maybe get out on my kayak. I haven't been out yet this year.
Thank you all for your comments and encouragement! I love blogging (Have I mentioned that before?), but I have cut back a bit to make time for other things. I promise to show you some more art soon. I have a couple of great encaustic pieces that I can't seem to get good pictures of. When the sun comes out, I'll hang them outside, capture their images and tell you all about them. Now, I'd better turn on some music and work on my studio!
Take care of yourselves and have a great week!
