God Bless Our Troops!
Most of my weekend was spent on the road! On Friday, I had to drive my mom to the doctor, and we encountered this sight on our return!
We are located half way between a Marine base and an Army base. Military convoys are a common occurence, but I've never seen one quite like this!
I wanted to stop the car, and salute or clap for them! :)
O Spring, Where art Thou???
On Saturday, I had to drive over to our lake house, to check on some repairs being done.
If you look outside, it looks like Spring, BUT it has rained and drizzled for over a week, and today is a chilly 53 degrees. Which, in eastern NC, on the coast in April, that is pretty cold! :)
The ride was a beautiful sight....God's magnificent wonder & handiwork! :)
Wisteria dripping from the trees, delicate lavender drops...
Azaleas bursting with color...

The winding road around the lakefront was almost magical! It was an overcast and dreary day, yet the vivid colors of the wisteria, dogwoods, azaleas, and flowering pear trees just popped against the bleak canvas, and were so vibrant!
The clouds are beginning to roll in (AGAIN)...time to head home before the storm!
Good timing...we were almost home when the downpour began! We got over 3" of rain Saturday, which was a blessing!
Our home in the distance...
