Okay, here's a sort of catch-up photo post for things either during the internet fast or my recent 4 days and 18 hours of Vue rendering!

     Can't forget Shado's birthday, since I shared some shots of Arun earlier. Shado turned 7 on April 27, here's a close-up and a full body shot I got the day after his birthday.

     If it weren't for the internet fast the last week of April, I would certainly have been babbling about the fantastic views I got to enjoy walking to the bus those mornings. This crabapple was just jaw-droppingly vivid!

     Though the wind and rain have long since destroyed those lovely blossoms, I've been having my own personal spring on my windowsill, as my streptocarpus plants are all in bloom (Well, except the one I keep at work, who keeps getting threatened with a graphic demise if it doesn't bloom by June... ;)

What gorgeous pictures, all of them! That close-up of Shado was very cute.

Loved the crabapple. It makes me miss spring a little.

And the streptocarpus are beautiful! The colours are fantastic.

Is all going well? The weather treating you well?

Thanks for looking! I'm glad the lilacs are still holding out--it smells just wonderful on my walks.

It's been like April this past week--very cool and I'm getting sick of all the rain. =P But that is supposed to start changing tomorrow, so I suppose I'll be roasting all too soon!

Hanging in there. With Corey out, it's been a wearing week, so I'm trying not to think of next week, let alone the last week of May, which is looking more foreboding by the day. I fear I'll need the three-day Memorial Day weekend just to recouperate!

You've been quiet lately--I hope things are going well for you and the dog is behaving!

Great photos. I love the crab-apples ones. Your streptocarpus are
beautiful. They look so healthy.
I love the close up of Shado. Even already that hard to believe.

Those crabapples were a real treat! I've got even more strep blooms now than when I took the photo! Hopefully I can keep them alive during the summer heat--that will be the touchy part for them.

Shado certainly has mellowed, but it's hard to believe he's already seven.
