April 2017 - Part 2 - Spring on the Hearth and Home

Spring, in all its glory, has arrived here in southwest Missouri! Everywhere I look there is new life! Fresh green grass, new flowers blooming, and baby animals everywhere!

Here are a few of the things that I have spotted in our yard over the past few weeks...

Bleeding Heart
Robin Eggs


Peter Rabbit

With spring came the celebration of Christ's resurrection and Easter. I colored a few eggs after I got home from work on Good Friday.

Nana's Colored Eggs
The next evening we had an egg hunt for the grandlittles. All of our grandchildren, but one, was able to be there. It was loads of fun and there was lots of candy for all!

And, with spring, of course, came the rain. Towards the end of April the deluge started and with it came wide-spread flooding. It was much worse to the south and east of us, but we got our fair share here on the tallgrass prairie. These pictures were taken in and around Liberal, Missouri.

Oh! And those robin eggs? Here's how that story ended up...

That's it for Part 2, but there's more to come in Part 3!

Until next time...
