"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

Our wonderful neighbors were enjoying the sunshine yesterday and doing some work in their backyard. B went over to say hello and was given this yellow rose to "give to Mommy." One of his latest phrases is, "Here you go." He even says it for himself when he receives things: "Here you go, B. Sank you."
We have five of this lovely clover patches around our backyard.
Newly transplanted shrubs
Gorgeous bunches of irises
More irises outside our bedroom windows
Plentiful roses in the front yard
So many buds!
Three rose bushes in the front yard, two in the back by the driveway
N with our very first lawn mower!
It's electric. No fumes, no pollution, less cost. Woohoo!
Here is a photo from this past Friday. He was decidedly unhappy with me for telling him we had to leave the playground.
The garden hose is a constant source of never-ending joy for B.
Oh, no! I've been spotted! Must run!
