Happy Mothers Day!

To all the human mommies and all the fur mommies. I guess fur mommies are still human, so that didn't make any sense. Happy Mothers Day anyways! Hugs and Kisses especially to my mom! Dorian got me up nice and early around 6am! I think he was excited to give me his present, some really nice fog! So I followed him outside and we took some pictures. It was a little unsettling, so early, so quiet, and possibly some rustling of a wild animal somewhere out of sight!
Apples in the mist...

The Saskatoons are in full bloom! I am so excited. When we moved into this house, I couldn't believe my eyes in the spring to discover I had saskatoon bushes growing right in my own yard! And if we venture out behind the property to the power line right of way, there is an endless amount and us and our buckets! The first year we couldn't get enough! But last year the crop was really poor and I don't think I got enough for even one pie. It was so disapointing. When I saw the flowers in bloom yesterday, it was very exciting. I don't remember there being so many flowers the other years! It's going to be a bumper crop! Pie anyone? Perogies? Jam?
Countdown to July begins!

I finally got started on the paint in the bathroom, Benjamin Moore H2O. I have only done one wall and to be honest I am not to happy with how the color came out. It was not the calm soothing spa like blue that I was going for. It was more of an Easter Egg blue. But when you buy Aura, it's an expensive pill to swallow, so I am going to carry on, maybe it will look better when it is all done and the tape is down. If not I will paint over it. I took the picture of the corner, so you could all remember the minty hospital green it was before. I'm not sure if this is any better!

Oh, and that rustling I thought I heard earlier....

I'm not crazy after all!
