When Spring comes alive:
Aptly named “Doo-dads” because a) my dad created them and b) because it’s fun to say and I have no other terminology. In essence, they are suncatchers. The backyard gets the sunset so it also gets the suncatchers! Unfortunately, I’m either busy or not home when the weather is decent enough to sit outside to watch. To do list item.
Each year a pair of ducks comes to our neighborhood and hangs out for awhile. With the addition of some new families, I enlisted the help of a few girls to watch over the ducks and make sure their rambunctious brothers and cousins didn’t run the ducks off. Maybe we’ll see some ducklings!
I don’t care what anyone says – daffodils do not exist in my world. There are only jonquils! They may look like daffodils, they may be exactly the same for all I know; however, I will forever call them jonquils. The end. I’m incredibly pleased these bloomed this year and will make a return each year.
Lastly, only in Texas: Blue Bell Creamery in Brenham, TX is experimenting with drone delivery. Full details here. Interestingly, they’re not delivering near Brenham; instead the plan is to deliver in two small towns near DFW. Let’s explore this. I don’t know the cost, but it would be a huge problem in my neighborhood. I would be getting daily deliveries! If you’ve never had an opportunity to try Blue Bell ice cream, you’re missing out!
Now I shall go take my daily dose of Zyrtec in order to prevent a horrible case of sneezing, itchy, runny, red eyes and nose. Because Texas spring is in bloom.
I ask you –
Do you have any yearly animal visitors?
What are your favorite flowers?
Spring: yay or oh-please-not-again. Definitely yay!

I’m still waiting for spring 😂. Should be here next week!
Today we’re at 98° so I think spring has flown the coop.
And we have a chance of snow on Saturday and snowed (didn’t stick) most of last week 🤣.
We’ve had bunnies live under our deck the last few years. Some of the babies have survived and have grown up around our house.
Black-Eyed Susans would be an option to plant if my wife let me. Cone flowers and lavender are other favorites.
Bring on the warmer weather. I don’t even care if my truck is yellow from the pollen.
