Dave just today changed the blog format. I saw the lightbox stuff somewhere too but can't remember now where I saw it. Was it just as you started writing your comment?

Sharon .........

Thanks for sharing the beauty of spring in your part of the country. I love this time of year and your photos remind me why I love it so much.

Smiles,

Thank goodness spring has finally come to you Sharon & to all the rest who have waited so long for it! Beautiful colors!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Yes, it was back when I commented. I have never seen that before when I post a comment to a blog.

And the truth, Margaret, is that I've almost forgotten that long cold icy winter. Smiling

Heh, wish I could forget winter, got up to snow this morning, about an inch, then it changed to rain but it is still cold at 40 degrees. Thumbs down

Oh my, Margaret!
We are in a rainy path for the next couple of nights, but the drop in temps seems only to be to the 60s and maybe I can live with that. I'm wondering if Mother Nature is ever going to settle down for awhile.

I don't mind winter, but darn it enough already, it is supposed to be spring, I so enjoy working in the garden and I have gotten way too few days so far this spring. Angry

Beautiful Sharon, I just knew when spring came to you I could expect to see some beautiful flowers & trees. I'm not too much into gardening this year, DH isn't responding to chemo treatment so going for new injectable drug of chemo/radiam called Xofigo. I pray God it works. Going to try strawberry plants for first time this year. My son bought some plants for me and his girlfriend. He is doing gardening at her place, she knows nothing about this wonderful therapy. Group hug

So good to hear from you, Pegi! So sorry there's a problem with the chemo but maybe the new drug will be the answer and your DH will begin to improve. Hope so! Best wishes to you and the strawberries! You'll enjoy that and you're right, any little bit of gardening is great therapy. And big hugs right back to you, my friend.

Margaret, wishing for you a long stretch of great weather! You deserve it.
