As Saturday was so jam packed with birthday and out of town family activity I took full advantage of my Sunday Sabbath and rested all day. So no pictures for me. However I will say that the marking of the first day of spring was a bit on the cold and dreary side so there was not much worth photographing in the cold drizzle that fell!

I am not sure what it is, but if memory serves we had the same issue last spring. Apparently there is a small burrowing animal, my guess is it is a small mole or chipmunk that has returned to my back yard. It has again sent our sweet little puppy over the edge. He is now on a mission to dig up every square inch of my garden in search of whatever is stirring just beyond his reach.

What’s the diff I ask?
I watch all the food network chef’s talk about the San Marzano tomatoes, well we shall see if it is worth paying nearly triple the price for a can of tomatoes. As dollars go at $2.33 for a 28 oz can is (in my opinion) a bit pricey, so they had better be the best tomatoes I ever put in my sauce. I also got some fancy tomato paste in a tube, sort like toothpaste. I will see how this works too. I will admit every time I see one of the food network chefs' using that little tube of paste it looks really cool. Also it seems that I never seemed to be able to find it on the shelf at the grocery store. Well no wonder, it was hiding behind one of those hanging things that they put those weird promotional items on like the hot pink plastic lid removers we can’t live without! Well there it was peaking out behind the lid removers so I snapped up a tube. On a practical note most of the time when tomato paste is called for in a recipe it hardily ever calls for using the whole can so this may be just the ticket.

The Elisha Winn House is just down the street from my house. In the fall they have a craft festival there. It is a historic site with several turn of the century house and other outbuilding in the property as well. Well I have been driving by, I pass it almost every few day in my day to day driving around, and every time I pass buy I would crane my neck to appreciate the beautiful stand of daffodils that are right out front along the road. Well Wednesday morning I tossed my camera in the car and vowed that I would stop on my way home from bible study and get a few pictures.
I just love daffodils y’all!

Ever heard of a Red Pummelo? It’s huge and has to be some variety of grapefruit! I put the lime in to give you some perspective on just how big it is. It about twice the size as a normal grapefruit. I am eager to try this and see what it is like!!!!!!

My new camera has a setting on it called “Face Recognition.” Well clearly further reading of the instruction manual needs to be done as I had to delete several very nice pictures of the back of my granddaughters head. I will say I hit the Grandbaby jackpot this week. I got to see her on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Yea for me!!!!

It was a gorgeous spring day. The little tree in my front bed is bursting with flowers.
I am not sure what kind of tree it is as it was here when we moved in. I will say that since we removed almost half of the contents in the front bed to other places in our yard I am much happier with the placement of this little tree. I also took the pruning shears to it in a major way and got it to actually look like a tree.
These are not in my yard but I still get to enjoy them as they are planted right next to one of my front beds. I just love the frilly lacy look of these daffodils. They are amazing. I have a bag of daffodils waiting to be planted this fall and then I will have some daffodils of my own next spring.
Well that does it for me for this weeks edition of project 365!
