This is a detail of a tree in our backyard. It has been here for 26 years and this is the first time it has bloomed. I have no idea what kind of tree it is.....do you? Below is a photo of the fallen blossoms. As you can see, they are star-shaped and pale lavender in color.
This salamander, or whatever he is, paid us a visit this week. He must have been embarrassed about something - he was blushing!!
He decided to visit Michele the bookish frog (named after you-know-who) and my puppy, who has become even more handicapped over the winter. He now sports a broken hip, as well as a missing foot. Poor pup.
This is the new glass froggy I got for Mother's Day. He has taken a place of honor in the kitchen window, and just today he was given some new friends (salt and pepper shakers). Mr. kenju says......"That's what we need - more frogs!!"
Isn't he handsome?
