It's My Fave Five #2

Once again, I'm joining Susanne from Living to tell a Story

Sometimes there is so much on my heart,
but never enough time to tell the whole story.

So here's my Five Favorite highlights for this week.

#1. Look who caught a mole?
He made such a mess of our yard this winter,
and finally after setting out those wicked traps,
he's caught and someone was excited to share "show and tell."
He of course was thrilled, because I caught one glimpse and I was gone....
I cannot stand moles or mice........And he was laughing.

#2. Sharing Easter Chicks with my youngest grandson, Silas.

#3. Levi learned to ride his bike without training wheels.
It didn't take long after running up and down our driveway,
he said, "Opa it's time to take of the training wheels."
Off to the shop they went.
So then his father commented,
"I thought you said that you needed your training wheels till you were twelve."
A huge smile beamed across his face.
Mission Accomplished!
You can obviously see his mother carefully running behind.

#4. I found this flower garden along my walk.
I absolutely fell in love with idea. So creative.

#5. My first budding tulip....
I strolled through my garden,
where I hucked a bunch of old tulip bulbs last fall.
I'm blown away as to the treasure I found. Wait till next Friday....

Hope you all have a wonderful week.

  1. Marg. . .you find such treasures through the eyes of your grandsons too ..and I showed the catch to my beloved. . for his approval.
    When I posted our catch last year .. I did get some negative comments. .so put your tough skin on. .

  2. Beautiful photos! I especially love the one of Silas with the baby chicks!

  3. Screeches and all...I know you were thrilled that the mole was no longer on the loose and doing damage. Love the pic of Silas and the chickies.

    One of my fave five from the past week would have been the view from the top of the 107 stairs!

  4. What a sweet pic of your grandson and the chicks! Good catch on the mole. I have to confess I'd be running too, though. LOL. Good for Levi! That is a great accomplishment to learn to ride that quickly! And you know I love your tulip!
