Joys & Jinxes of Spring

"All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
But the word of the LORD endures forever."

I Peter 1: 24-25

It has been so beautiful but dry. We have been in the low 80's for several days now. Hot for me! All the windows are open tonight and it feels good.

The pictures are of the Rose Trees of China. They bloom in the spring right along with another first flower of spring that Ashlee our granddaughter (number two) has picked---dandelions!

Lexie, Ashlee and AJ will be spending several nights here and tomorrow we plan to find all the big black beetles we can find and smoosh them! We are having an infestation. A plague. A pestilence.

This picture shows one already smooshed on the sidewalk. (bleah)

We went to town on Saturday and it was 75. That's the warmest we've been and I was not prepared for it! I spent most of the day in our air-conditioned truck. hehe Today it's cooler and we're having misty showers. I love this kind of rain.

Nice lookin roses sis and yuck on the beetles. Did you guys get alot of stomping done when you went out with the kids?
It's been beautiful but we can use the rain huh.

Your beetles remind me of our crickets in the Fall. You can't walk across the parking lot for crunching them under your feet! These aren't cute little "Jiminy Cricket" bugs either.They stink really bad once they croak or get crunched! Pee Eww!!

AC is so nice to have when it gets hot... and we do, even if we live in Alaska!

We did not see one beetle! I saw one after the kids left. I think they know.... [twilight zone tune]

Yuck to the stinky crickets!
