Afternoon out....

Although it is starting to look like Spring at my house, it still does not feel like Spring. It has been cold and rainy most days. However, we had a bit of sunshine and warmer temps yesterday so the girls and I headed out to the local farm to see what we could see. June was hoping to see the cows, but they were surrounded by an electric fence, so we opted for flowers. Last year I did not do a lot of planting being that Kendall was only a few weeks old. I hope this year will be different. (HOPE is the key word here) There were quite a few flowers to choose from and it is nice to get some ideas for my planting.

These pink forget me nots are beautiful, I may have to go back for these, so pretty.
When we were done looking at flowers it was off to vintage farming equipment, look at this wheel. I imagine it was a pretty rough ride!

Lovely flowers! I can't wait to plant some around here and bring in some color. We've had zero rain, so even though it's Spring in Texas everything is still so drab.
