Chats On The Farmhouse Porch

I do declare, this winter just will not give up!  They are predicting lows around 30' tonight, and here is is, just a few days before Easter. 

Speaking of cold, what I thought was a hallacious allergy attack has blossomed into a full blown spring cold.  Between that, and the kicking North wind outside, let's have our chat around the kitchen table instead.  I've got surgical masks for anyone wishing to avoid my germs. 



1.  What are you doing for Easter? 

Well, Cody has outgrown egg hunts, and I keep eating his candy, so we'll just go to church, then dinner, followed by Easter shows on TV.  Well, DVD.  We have Here Comes Peter Cottontail, The Easter Bunny Is Coming To Town, It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown.  Yes, I still watch those.  Cody doesn't.  I do.  Jesus Of Nazareth is now up on Netflix, so I'll probably watch that, too. 

2.  How many spring flowers have you noticed the last week or so? 

 Lots.  The daffodils and Bradford pear have already come and gone, but there are still plenty of things blooming.   I showed you my iris and violets yesterday.  Also, those yellow weed things, onion flowers, and those little purple flowers that cover the yards are blooming now.  And I've noticed a few wisteria blooms, too.

 Sorry about the poor quality of the photos.  I was using my phone, and it's very windy out there.

3.  What was your favorite thing in an Easter basket, or as dessert at Easter dinner? 

 The eggs.  The real ones.  The hard boiled eggs that we dyed.  I'd rather eat those than the candy.  That was back before I knew I was allergic to eggs. 

4.   If you were a dog, what kind would you be? 

 One that is loved and cared for in a good home. 

5.  What are your favorite pizza toppings? 

Pepperoni, mushroom, sausage, and extra cheese. 

Thank you for joining me for this week's chat.  I hope to see you all next week.

Same bat time.  Same bat channel.

We generally have a yard full of those that you're calling onion flowers. Your purple ones and yellow ones are really pretty. A neighbor did a really sweet gesture yesterday and mowed our lawn, but when they did, they mowed the oxalis (the flowers of the shamrock) that were just starting to bloom really good in the front yard. Oh well, hopefully they'll come back so that I can photograph them - the flowers, not the neighbors. :)

Have a great week!

Pizza isn't pizza without extra cheese! I think we have some of the same flowers.
