Taken February 27th, 2011 "Crocus"


See the tenderness emerging! I love this representation of 'new life'!
Kind of indicative of us on our weighloss journeys... "NEW LIFE"!!!

I wish daffodils lasted longer... I love them! But I never met a 'flower' I didn't love! LOL

See the daffodils come THROUGH the leaves!

See all the flowers coming up! This area has been taken over with them!

Tulips coming up!

My hollyhocks I have had for many years.. I got from my Mom's yard!

This garlic comes up every year.. I planted some years ago... I harvest the biggest ones and give to my mom or we use it too!

This was my sunrise one morning last week! I love what God does with the colors!

This is a SUNSET... last week! JUST AMAZING TO ME! I am so thankful to be able to SEE this

See my 3 month old French Bulldog I raised. She now lives in her new home in Florida!

You probably wonder how I am able to let them go.. and don't want to just KEEP them all..
IT is because I have new ones like this to nurture and care for!
THIS one below is a VICTORIAN Bulldog puppy! She has to be bottle fed! I love feeding her!

THIS last picture is what a 2 month old Victorian looks like. This was taken the morning she was leaving to go to her new home!

Note: you can see the few lbs I have put on since December are showing in my face! BUT not for long.. my sparkies.. NOT for long! I will not go back to the Old me... I will get it back off plus some more too!
HUGS TO ALL OF YOU.. Love you guys!!!!!

    Those are beautiful pictures! I can't wait for spring! My kids always get me flowers for Mother's Day to plant in my flower boxes. We live in an apartment, on the 2nd floor, so I have to get by with the flower boxes. Better than none at all!
    And the puppy, so adorable. We had to find a new home for our Beagle last year, which was so difficult. The new owner was keeping in touch for a while, but then fell off the radar. I hope she is a happy pup in her new home though. I had raised her from the time she was 8 weeks, and she was 6 when she went to her new home.

    Have a great day!

    I LOVE your pictures. And those puppy dogs--just adorable. My son wants a bull dog so badly, but I have said no, we have one very old Maltese, when she goes, we are trying a life without pets for a while. Let the floors recover! Can't wait for Spring to come to Nebraska--we still have some snow on the ground, heck, we just had a blizzard a week ago!

    Okay, this just ROCKED my socks right off.

    First of all, I just saw my little sprouts coming up a bit more today and can not WAIT to see happy purple and white crocuses (croci?) dotting the front gardens!! YAY YAY YAY SPRING!

    But the puppers.. oh man. I lost my baby boy (he was 11, but I think they're always babies!) in late July of last year. I'll tell you what -- I never thought I was a "dog person" until that silly old yellow lab came into my life and even at the end when he was so sick, he was my sunshine. I swore that I'd never get another dog, but seeing those wee little babies just melts my heart! :D Maybe I should reconsider my "no more dogs" stance...


    Love you much! Hope you're having a great night!! Thanks for the pictures!!

    Sherlyn, gardening and flowers are more things we have in common...as well as photography! Those daffodils are just like a breath of fresh air! And I think you look wonderful! Your puppies are just adorable; they look like little stuffed animals! (Check out my Wordpress blog sometime -- lots of flower photos and poetry, etc. there. :) http://nancybond.wordpress.com

    YAY! Spring really is coming, isn't it? I was beginning to have my doubts! I think you look fabulous -- don't be too hard on yourself! You'll take off the little bit that you've gained in no time, you know what to do now! Thanks for the hope (that Spring is coming) and the hope that I can be like you and reach my goal some day! emoticon

    Such cute puppies! I have a huge soft spot in my heart for puppies and dogs. Especially tiny ones.

    I know you can take off the weight you've put on since December. You've got the plan. I know you'll get back on track soon. Just one day at a time; one step at a time.
