Our lemon tree is covered with flowers again, promising another banner crop later this year. What I didn’t expect was this:
It seems our enterprising tree has given birth to a baby dinosaur.
Thank you in advance for keeping your congratulatory comments to a dull roar. We don’t want to wake the baby.
Is there any ‘funny business’ happening in your world today?
Someone told me the following joke years ago and it still makes me giggle. I don’t generally remember jokes, even five minutes later, or I mess up the telling of the joke and give away the punch line.
Since I edit my own blog, this time I’ll get it right. And since you are reading this joke, I’ll never know if you are rolling your eyes, or suppressing a soft groan.
In my mind, you’ve just let out a deep belly laugh, and now have tears running down your cheeks while you call to someone in the other room to come hear this hilarious joke.
Perhaps I should have stopped before that last paragraph. Now you really have your hopes up. I’m nothing if not optimistic.
A man hears a knock at his door, but upon answering doesn’t find anyone there.
He closes the door, but again hears a knock.
The second time he opens the door, looks down and sees a garden snail on his front porch.
He bends down, hurls the snail across the yard and again closes the door.
Flash forward: Ten Years Later
The same man hears a knock at his door and upon answering it, he sees the same snail on his front porch.
The snail looks up at him and says, “What the hell was that about?”
I hope you’re sliding into a happy Friday.

Some days you get it right and some days things go terribly wrong. Today fell into the latter. My concept for the Easter fairy garden was simple: The merest suggestion of an Easter Bunny watching over the little garden. Perhaps I should have quit with the bunny ears subtly peeking out from the fescue. I completely forgot the cliché ‘quit while you’re ahead’ and kept going. Now its dark and starting to rain so I’ve no time for a do-over. When I downloaded the pictures, they were, well…kinda of creepy. When my son saw the photos and burst out laughing, I knew I was doomed.
So…here is what I initially wrote, and the pictures that don’t quite go with it.
Tiny eggs appeared in the fairy garden today. I guess the Easter Bunny started his rounds early.
I completely understand. I started my own rounds by reaching into the bag of tomorrow’s candy so I could do a little ‘quality control.’ No sense making my kids sick on untested chocolate.
So far, so good. 🙂
The Easter Bunny seems to have grown since we last saw him. Like many of us, he’s suffering from a bit of middle-aged spread. He wears it well though. Perhaps I need to wear more pink…or eat less chocolate.

Nah. I’m searching the web now for the latest in pink confections..I mean fashions.
This little deer found an egg.
Look left little frog…you’re getting warmer

I hope you’re laughing, too.
Smiling is good for you. It reduces tension, helps you relax and promotes overall good health. There is always something to smile about in the garden; sometimes I’m lucky enough to catch it with my camera.
I hope these photos put a smile on your face, too.
Sure, the pumpkin is nice, but will you look at that cat I grew!?
He’s a cheeky little fella
Look, Ma!!! I can fly with one wing!
I think there’s a pooch hiding in the tree. Dogwood???
Are you smiling yet?
