Two handsome dudes and a lot of pretty flowers

Fred and I just got back yesterday from a whirlwind trip to Florida for my grandfather's funeral. While it was a sad occasion, it was nice to have a chance to visit with my extended family. I took only 1 photo though:

In other news, spring is busting out all over up here in Kansas. I think the universe is trying to make it up to me for last winter and (lack of) spring. The tree in our front yard is looking mighty pretty:

Also, the crocuses we planted are coming up nicely, even if I did confuse 5 centimeters and 5 inches when planting them:

Here are some more pretty flowers that Annabelle and I saw while walking the dog today:

(Note: The really wide, yellow house? It's called the Rookery and is known as both the oldest and most haunted house in Kansas!)

Now we're off again tomorrow to look at colleges in Minnesota. This month I will have been in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Florida, Iowa, and Minnesota.

Thanks for the pictures of the beautiful flowers and shrubs.
And Mike, you aren't really old until you reach 80!

Love, Joy, And Peace,
