- The first hyacinths have bloomed:
I planted these a couple years ago, but for whatever reason they didn't bloom last spring. When it started to look like they might actually flower this year, I got excited about the peach-colored hyacinths I was just sure I had planted in this spot. Well. These aren't peach.
They are, however, a beautiful purple-blue color, and I'm pleased as punch with them. The first flowers of the season are always so exciting.
- We celebrated a lovely, low-key Easter with church and golf and gardening. I have all of three photos of the kids in their Easter finery ("Easter finery" in this household equating to whatever nice-ish clothes I could cobble together three hours before the church service, as I stopped spending money on holiday clothing years ago), or maybe it was four, and right around 100 photos of the kids and Derek golfing. I will not be forcing you to look at all 100+, but fair warning: There are going to be a large amount of pics on here this week. Some will be sweet:
|Derek and Cade golfing. Caedmon looks a bit waif-like in all the golf photos, as he's wearing one of Derek's hats and one of Atticus's shirts. I did not notice this until we were on the course. Oh, well.|
Some will baffle:
|I took this photo of Adelaide during the Easter egg hunt, and I'm still not sure what's happening here.|
But in precisely zero photos will everyone be smiling.

- I was going to have a third thing here, but I can't remember what it was. This is a problem because I cannot let myself have a list with just two items. So... fill in your own third item. And make it clever, would you? Or perhaps heart-warming, or funny, or something? Thanks.
