Mom's Garden (among other things)

Hello. I keep meaning to be a better blogger and it just ain't happening unless I am babbling about Polaroid something or other. I even tried to get back on the Twitter bandwagon, the way of a lazy blogger. But no, that fizzled out quickly.

Things are going well. It's been almost one year since we left Pittsburgh and we're still loving it out here. It's hard not to love it. I mean, how could I possibly complain about almost daily sunshine?! It definitely good for my spirits and well-being.

And Spring has officially Sprung out here and I can't get enough of the flowering trees and tulips and flowers galore. We had dinner with my parents at their house last week and so I had to take some shots of my mom's garden, always so very lovely.

Peach tree blossoms. Can't wait for more yummy peach jam that mom makes!!

peach-n-apricot tree
The peach/apricot tree, absolutely spectacular! Half of it gets light pink blossoms and half of it gets dark pink almost red blossoms. It is really only noticeable from a distance and so I admire it every morning as I run along the river (as I can see my parents' property from there).

mom's tulips
And tulips. I love tulips.

So yeah, you'll be seeing lots of mom's garden in the months ahead. I can't wait until the peonies bloom!

We took Rocky to the vet this morning for his blood work. If you recall, last November, we found out that he has a slight heart murmur so the vet recommended we have more tests done. Considering that he acts totally normally, healthy appetite (uh, we're talking about Rocky here!) and regular exercise, etc., the vet isn't too worried about it, but we need to be sure. On Friday we are taking him in for an ultrasound so we had to get his x-rays from our regular vet. Here's are two views of Rocky's insides:

Aww, my baby boy! Fingers crossed that we find out that he is totally fine!

So that's that for now. Let's see if I can try writing once or twice a week...
