Sunday Signs

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
-Charles Swindoll

The beautiful bradford pears are blooming and are so pretty right now. I love this spot, which is about a half mile from us, as the crow flies.

I'm slow in getting around to posting my Sunday sign. Better late than never though!

That Bradford pear tree lined road is beautiful, and I bet it'll look even more beautiful as the trees bloom out completely.

I was glad to see Gooseberry playing in your last post. I forgot to mention that, and I hope that the little visiting dog made it safely out of your house. Gooseberry was feeling so playful that you were right...he might have mistaken it for a little rat.

You're always ahead of us and I bet you have more flowers blooming there. Our Maple trees are just beginning to send us little tiny red flowers that will shortly turn into seeds that will float down and stop up our gutters.

The Bradford pears, wild plums, cherry trees, red buds, and many other trees are blooming here right now. I just hope we don't have a late freeze like we did last year. It ruined most of the fruit and nut crops in our area for miles around.

I like all the signs, but that last one is my favorite of the bunch.

Have a great new week, Rachel! ;o)

Love and hugs,

Love the pear trees! Can't wait 'ti things start "popping" around here. Thank you for your kind words on my last post, they do help. I am doing better, now, and hope to continue on that path.

The pear trees are beautiful. I'll bet they smell wonderful.
Poor Gooseberry - I hope he's feeling better. That tiny little dog is so cute.

You are such a great photographer! I love to see Bradford Pear trees. But, I would have to inform Janell, they do not "smell wonderful". Actually I think their bad smell is as strong as their beautiful appearance. Do you agree Rachel?

Bradford pear trees always remind me of my Dad, who I lost over 3 years ago. He loved planting fruit trees and tending them and the Bradford pear is the last one he planted so many, many years ago.

We won't be having blossoms for a good while yet. But the temps are going up at last.

Great pics. We're a ways from blooming anything here.
Hope the cat is better.
On the tv deal, if you get one of those converter boxes you will like it. You'll be getting a lot of channels you didn't know about. The government will reimburse you for the cost of the box.

The Bradford pears were beautiful here too. Then the rain came in and washed all the blooms away. The dogwoods are beautiful now.

Hi Rachel, I love the pear trees and your signs. Do you travel to find the signs? You have so many.
My biopsy was malignant. I have to go back into the hospital this coming Monday the 7th of April for some more surgery and then radiation for five weeks. I dread it, but it could be worse. I will write some more later. Love, Clara

Those rows of Bradford pears are beautiful!
We have trees here that have really pretty purple blossoms on them. I just them. I'm enjoying all the blooms. Our dogwoods bloomed last week.

I was beginning to think you were gonna skip this week's Sunday signs.
