For lo. the winter is past, the rain is over and gone...the flowers appear on the earth, the time of the singing of the birds is come. Song of Solomon 2: 11-12

I love this time of the year but after a rain shower yesterday we lost some of the blossoms and decided to get out there before they are all gone. I was in luck today I bought a lace dress at a thrift shop for two bucks that matches the blossoms on the tree...Didn't take time to try it on before I bought it but it fits...I was hoping to find something in that cranberry color and it was half price day at the store which I didn't know until I went to the front to pay for it.. I got a better bargain than I anticipated:) it was so good to see the sun after having so much rain ... The sun came out as I shot this self portrait and that was a better bargain than I anticipated also.
