So this has been happening and it is why we've been so busy lately.

And my grandson Russell is growing like a weed!

Planned Spring Loveliness

Every spring our neighborhood explodes with these flowering trees.  Besides being lovely they smell wonderful too.

Spring Phlox

I've wanted a big mass of creeping phlox since seeing a former neighbor's beautiful collection years ago.  
And now I just want to sit and stare at ours.

Hope your spring is shaping up beautifully!

There are more important things than babies......or maybe not.

I've been taking a "staycation" this week to help my daughter with her new baby.
Such hardship on my part.
Not. At. All.

It's been great.
I would love to, and could, post all kinds of endless baby pictures here but I'll save you from me.

Actually, here's a couple.

I caught a tiny smile today, accidentally.  They're few and fleeting and usually happen while he's sleeping.  So probably not even technically a "smile."  But who cares, right?

And he and his Seattle cousin, Hayden, met briefly for the first time.

There IS other news......believe it or not.  
I finished this sweater for my friend's rescued chihuahua and it fit Nellie pretty well.

Nellie always looks so regal.

And spring is bursting at the seams here in Boise.

And phlox in our front yard;
