Then I smelled the mock orange in full bloom. I had to take a big bouquet home with me
and I knew the shell would get crushed in the process, so I made this little still life and left it on the rock.

A work in progress.
The old barn is becoming a garden.
I built a gate.
Yep! All by myself.
Every part of it is repurposed
except for a few random screws.
I even used the screws from the ski bindings
where I could.
The hinges were part of the old doors on the barn.
Wait till you see the latch.....
There are some bad@s$ roses in and around
this barn. I have trimmed them up
and tied them up
and cannot wait for their grand performance.
They are likely wild, but are thriving so
they are as high as the walls, and the hips
on them are BIG.
I wonder what color the blooms are?
Daffs from the yard,
those big doubles get heavy and fall over
I am forced to pick them!
This must be the year of the trillium,
they are abundant down by the Creek
The crab is getting ready to burst into blossom!
I tried several times to get the creek and the flower just how I wanted
Do you get that?
I love that smell.
There are bees too!
Mike started a detail in St. Maries, Idaho in January.
He finished the first week of May.
These fotos are from his last day there.
I came down for the weekend starting on a Thusday.
I snapped these shots Saturday morning while I waited
for him to clean out his office.
His lodging was a one bedroom apartment
that has been converted into guest suites
this is the front yard, basically.
It is gorgeous, but deceiving.
There is an ugly, industrial sort of parking lot
between the front door and this.
I just closed my eyes to that part!
It was gorgeous on those cold & frosty winter mornings too.
OK, so the full moon was two weeks ago
but I am just getting to the fotos.
Barb and I headed toward a certain Lake
with satchels full of goodies.
The snow stopped us from getting there
We had an alternate adventure,
found this new place,
a knoll with a brilliant view of the Cabinets,
and stumps for a perfect picnic.
(too bad the foto didn't turn out better!)

Free skiing all week at 49° North.
We made the Monday pilgrimage.
The "boys" travelled up from Spokane where they have been fans for the weekend.
(NCAA Womens Tourney) and us girls came from the east.
This cracks me up!
When visiting a ski resort, don't you sort of expect an INCLINE?

A fellow blogger, who also stopped due to the fees, sent me an e-mail saying that she was able to post some fotos. I quickly went to her blog to catch up and then decided to try it for myself!
Wheeeee! It worked! Here I am!
I have a purpose for my pictures again!
It was Crazy Days at Turner Mountain on Saturday.
Here are a few crazy costumes.
unbelievably, these are the only fotos I took all day.
See? I have been distraught about what to do with all my fotos,
I just don't take that many anymore.
Well, the landscape is not the best for stunning fotografy right now...
what with a winters worth of dog poop and beer cans surfacing from beneath the snow....
But yeah, I will get back in the saddle and post a few things here and there.
Stay tuned, unless you have already moved on.....
