Spring Brings Beautiful Flowers

I am not sure what happen or What kind of tree this is but all the flowers are white, accept for this little bunch that chose to be different. This is the tree. 

In the picture you can tell all white. This tree makes little berries.  The kind birds eat not people.  I am not sure what it is it has thorns big ones.

Of course this is a fruitless Crab Apple tree.

And this is one of my Hydrangea's.  The other one has not bloomed yet.

I am just so enjoying this spring.  I love love flowers.
I am so blessed to look out my door and see all these and more. 
All the plant that I have in my front yard are flowering perinials.  
Summer can not come fast enough for the flowers only not the Heat.

Bowling Pin awards

For our Army unit Family Day we went bowling.  I got these bowling pins and some stickers and made awards for high score or King Pin and low score or Sad Sak.
Yes I don't have all the letters on because I had to go back to the store and get some more stickers.  Then I forgot to take pictures when they were complete.  You get the idea.  It is easy and looks great. Family day was a success.  The silent auction was a success. We are not starting to plan the holiday party.

What to do with the shoes that end up in a pile at the front door

Every day when my children come home the shoes come off and get piled up at the door.  I really hate this but the couch is on one side of the door and this wall is behind the door.  The closet is on the opposite side of the room.
So I looked on Pinterest and found this example of a shoe rack.

She uses pegs and I used hooks.  I liked the idea so I had to make my own.  Thanks

Cool Blue Bottle

Last weekend we went to Sarasota Springs NY.  They have natural springs, The oldest horse race track in the country and many other cool things to see.  The water in this bottle is from one of the natural springs from the area.  I picked up the sparkling water bottle before we left.

I especially liked this bottle because of the "S" on the bottle.  
I don't know if I will ever open the bottle.  I just like it.
