Friday festivities: Friends and Flowers

TODAY IS A BIG DAY...NO APRIL FOOLING HERE JUST LOTS OF FUN!!


Zaphod, our good buddy from Canada, is celebrating his Birthday today
He asked all his friends to send him photos of them playing or having a good time.






FIRST UP FOR MY FLOWERS IS MY HEADER
THE lovely flowers are this year's blooms from our Eastern Red Bud
The photoshop of me had a nip toy nearly the same color as the blooms
Mom just had to make it into a header!!


These gorgeous red posies are blooming in the neighborhood.  We aren't sure what they are but 
if they are RED you know mom snaps them.

Our Japanese Maple....we know these are not flowers but we do so love the red leaves.

Below is a collage of the red heart leaves that are on our Forest Pansy Red Bud
You can still see a few of the lavender flowers on the limbs too
The leaves will turn green by mid April or early May....
