We had a little bit of excitement this week…….a new baby joined our family – my niece had her first child – a girl……..we had a nasty return of winter in the form of a ton of wet, heavy snow that destroyed my beautiful Bradford Pear Tree – I’m heart broken…….and I got to go see an in-person live show at our local Cabaret!
First – let me share with you the demise of my beloved tree:
Taken the day before the snow hit……it was in full bloom and stunning at dawn on Tuesday!
Then, this is what I woke up to on Wednesday morning – April 21st!
And, later in the day, I came home to find half of it broken off and laying on the ground!!!
A total loss……destroyed…….my heart is broken!!!
But……I will replace it……thinking maybe replacing it with an Ivory Silk Lilac Tree……maybe…..still thinking!
And, now…..on with this batch of Daily Photos:
I didn’t miss the one for “Kiss”…..it is of my niece kissing my brand new great niece and I won’t put that on this public site!
Catch ya next time!
Spring just keeps on coming…..gorgeous days, buds popping, leaves sprouting……loving it!!! And, here are my next daily photos to keep the excitement going!
A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT
Catch ya later!
Hello April! So happy to see you!
Here are the first group of my April Daily Photos:
It may have been an April Fool’s Joke, but the snow that was falling from the sky on April 1st was NOT funny!
From my archives…..I forgot to get a pic that day……these people are in Skagway, Alaska
The weather on the 3rd was much better than it was on the 1st!
Looking forward to the rest of the month……
So, here we are….the end of March…..the end of the first quarter of 2021……the end of winter……and the end of Alphabet Month! And…..we’re on to spring…….Q2 – 2021…….April Showers……and regular kind of Daily Photo topics! How’s that for deep thoughts on a Wednesday night? Hahaha
Let’s just get on with the final Daily Photos for March, shall we?

“Small Business of the Month”

MY FAVE SPOT
MY FAVE BOOK
Whatever is on my Kindle if I can read it outside on a gorgeous spring day!
I’M PROUD OF…….
……this photo I took a few years ago in Mt Albion Cemetery!
Yeah, it’s an awesome photo, but the REAL reason I’m proud of it is cause:
I actually got myself out of bed, dressed, and out early enough to capture the sun through the fog before it lifted!
So — that’s it……Alphabet Month is done! I have to admit I struggled a bit with the alphabet, this time! So, I’m happy to see a normal list of odd photo prompts for April……and here is April’s list:
Can’t wait to see what I come up with……..Catch ya later!
Spring has sprung here in Western NY……today was an amazing day and the rest of the week is predicted to be pretty awesome, too. Of course, it is still only March and there will be that usual March roller coaster of weather, so hang on to your hats! But, for now……my Spring Fever is getting a good dose of just what it needs – warmth and sunshine! YAY!
So, now for the Daily Photos from the past week:
O is for OATMEAL
P is for PRITT
Q is for QUARTER TO ELEVEN – time to snuggle under the QUILT
R is for REINDEER
S is for SOUNDS of SILENCE and SOLITUDE
T is for TEA
U is for the UNDERSIDE of an UMBRELLA on an UTTERLY gorgeous day
There you have it…….see you next week…..if not before!
And, here we go with Week Two of my March Daily Photos!

I is for Ice Cream
J is for Jets
K is for K…..that’s all…..
L is for Love

Unfortunately, I think I’ve given up on the Lenten Daily Photo Challenge……I did two this week and one was using a regular Daily Photo for double duty…..
So long, for now……I’ll be back!!!
Well, March sure did roar in like a LION!!! On March 1st, the wind was so wicked and it was super cold and it snowed off and on (no accumulation, but it sure looked blustery out there)! Here’s hoping that was enough to satisfy the first part of the “If March comes in like a Lion, it’ll go out like a Lamb” old wive’s tale. We’re forecast to see some high 50s and even a couple 60s this coming week! But, I’m not that naive – I know March in Western NY is like a roller coaster ride of weather events — cold, warm, rain, snow, sun, clouds, nice, nasty……but, April is coming and Spring is right around the corner!!!
So, let’s get on with the Daily Photos for the first most wonderful week of March…..reminder – March is Alphabet Month and I’ll follow the regular Daily Photos with the Lenten topics:
A is for ANGELS
B is for BRICK BUILDING ON BANK STREET
C is for COURTHOUSE AT SUNSET
D is for DAFFODIL SPROUTS
E is for EGGS
F is for FIREHOUSE
G is for GARLIC
And, now for the next set of Lenten Daily Photos:
(Yep – it was a Double Duty Photo Day)
(you guessed it – another Double Duty Photo Day)
WHAT I’M STREAMING
(the answer was …… NOTHING)
There you have it, folks……
Here we are at the end of February. March begins, tomorrow, and brings with it the promise of Spring and reawakening of Nature and all it has to offer. I got my first dose of the Moderna Covid 19 vaccine, this past Friday and have an appointment for dose # 2 the end of March. All that snow that dumped on us the last couple of weeks is shrinking away and some hints of grass and life are beginning to peek through. Life is good, indeed……and I got me a bad case of Spring-Fever…..and, no – I don’t want the vaccine for that – I’ll take it on with joy!!! 🙂
And, now, on with the final photos for February and the next set of photos for the Lenten Challenge:
A LOVE STORY
A WEDDING PHOTO
WHAT I’M READING
And, now……the next set of the Lenten Photo Challenge:
A FAMILY PHOTO
Yep – this photo did double duty, today!
Here is the Daily Photo Challenge List for March – it is ALPHABET month!!! And, of course, I will continue on with the Lenten Photo Challenge List, as well.
See ya in March!!! 🙂
WOW – Mother Nature sure dumped a lot of snow on us in February! She can stop, now! LOL But, let’s not dwell on that…..let’s get right into this week’s Daily Photos, shall we? Also – I started doing the Lenten Daily Photo Challenge, so those photos will follow the regular challenge.
