Blooming bushes

The bushes are blooming around here...have been for a few days but today is the first day I have taken any pictures. We were gone all day yesterday, and the day before we had enough rain to float a battleship.
It has stormed two out of the last three nights...not last night but the two before. Night before last, I just unplugged both the surge protectors that the computers, etc were on. I like having surge protectors in case we aren't here and it storms, but even with them if it is storming bad, I unplug anyway. I am lost without the computer, even for a few hours and cannot imagine if I had to wait days to replace them.

I have been busy the past couple of days and not been blogging...I plan to try to visit everyone tonight but going to be pretty busy the next few days. Blogging here is going to be hit or miss, but I do have pictures scheduled for my Time Stand Still blog. I will try to pop in here and there, but if I don't get you every day I will get back to you...

Is that 2nd shot lilacs? It's been so long since I've seen them in person, I wasn't sure.

Very pretty! We're just now experiencing some nicer weather, and a lot of the snow has melted. The Lilac blossom is gorgeous - I can almost smell it!

I'm so jealous that you have so many blossoms. It's still quite cold here and we even had a dusting of snow last night! Your lilac is gorgeous!

These are beautiful flower pictures. I'm glad the storms didn't destroy all these blossoms.

The blossoms are so pretty and colorful!

I've had enough of those bad storms. The ones on Tuesday were brutal! Hope you didn't have any damage at your place.

Beautiful blooms! Your lilacs are ahead of ours, the ones here are just now showing a few tiny flowers.

Nice to know you are a fellow Robert Service fan, I love his poems. I lived in Anchorage for ten years. One time some friends and I drove over to Dawson City in the Yukon and visited a cabin Robert Service had lived in for awhile. The guide did a reading of some of his poems, it was fun to hear them in the part of the country where he wrote them.

Beautiful colors in your area, Rose... Glad you captured some good pictures...

We've had lots of rain and storms also... BUT--that makes all of the spring flowers/grass and WEEDS grow faster!!!!!

Happy Easter
Hugs,
Betsy
