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.
