I knew someone would come along and it would change someday. And they did, this week. Ben and Viv's little lilac tree that she insisted they move far enough from the street so it could bloom. The little apple tree that continued to live even through summers of drought. Many, many trees that provided shelter for creatures and an occasional person.
The tree people came and there's hardly anything left but my sadness.

best. I know other people might not agree - ours go back to when the people at neighborhood grocery store made a special trip to Colorado and brought back a truckload every summer and we all just loved them.
The grocery store has since closed but the towns people still grasp for Colorado peaches.
Last summer when Leonard was in the hospital I bought a lug of them and then wondered what I was going to do with them. I brought one out for him as a very special treat. I didn't have time to can, freeze, or even eat them. Not wanting to lose any I just stuck them in plastic bags and put them in the freezer. Now I take out what I want, let them thaw enough to remove their skins (easy) and use them for smoothies, ice cream, peach crisp or what ever I want. They're delicious that way. Necessity is the mother of invention. Diane

I find joy in every day, not because life is always good, but because God is.
Something wonderful to share with you. I have been asked to be one of a four person art show. To tell you the truth, I still haven't quite absorbed it. It will be the first part of May. She wants to put my little journals in, a couple of my creations and my 9/11 quilt (which I think you've seen already). At last a dream since childhood - to be an artist.
The plum trees and apple trees are blooming and the air is filled with sweetness. I can hardly believe that spring is here, we had such a mild winter. The other day when I walked Rascal I heard a frog - ribbit, ribbit, ribbit.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Diane

Speaking of flying if you're in the mood for lots of snow and beautiful scenery (Alaska) as well as beautiful kites and planes, click on 180PZ, which is my son-in-law's post.
