Crackin' Up

It was too windy to ride today. I tried, and it was insane. Don't believe me? Check out our tree. Oh yes, the neighbors are going to love coming home to this (don't worry - no property damage). We're going to have the whole tree removed and just like that there goes all our lovely shade.

I love lilacs but am very allergic to them. Mr. O (I could kiss that man) snipped off all the blooms outside our bedroom so I could still sleep with the windows open and listen to the wind rustling through the aspens. (If you squinch your ears just so it sounds like the ocean is in the backyard).

But not before I snapped a couple pictures.

That's a bummer that you are allergic.

:( that breaks my heart to think of the lilacs all getting cut off! Next time, bring them all to me. They are my favorite flower and I adore my house full of the scent.

(And for some reason, two of my four lilac bushes didnt' produce flowers this year. Weird.)

Ah! What a lovely act of lovingkindness. He's a keeper. The lilacs are lovely - one of my favorite flowers.

I used to love the windows open at night, and i don't even have the lovely smell of lilacs, but someone in the neighborhood has some obnoxious bird..... sad that we have to close them now to get any sleep!
