What's in Bloom in the Garden!

Always good to arrive home and find spring flowers blooming in the garden.  Always pick bunches of Daffodils and bring inside and keep them in a vase.

My dad was so pleased to see us, and I guess it's rather daunting for a elderly legally blind man to be left by his only child (me) to go away thousands of klms for over a month.  One good thing is that a Government Institution send a person whom my dads trusts a little, once a week to take him shopping.  So now I am back into my normal mode of traveling to my dads, staying then back home - hence I still have two homes to take care of.  I enjoy all of this immensely having friends in 2 cities, you could say I have 2 of everything just about, expect husbands :)

Anyway my spring blooms that are our in the garden at this time.




 Magnolia bloom, this tree is kept trimmed for they can grow rather large.
