Purple Robe

I went out to turn off the water and discovered it wasn't windy.
I just had to take a picture even though it was after sunset.

This tree has really grown since last year and is covered with these sweet smelling flowers. Some people don't like them and have issues, but I haven't had it long enough to have any problems. So for me, it is a keeper.

Have a blessed week and I hope there won't be any more terrible storms for anyone.

That first picture is amazing during the 'blue hour'. Hope retirement is going well; but I'm sure for now it is summer as usual. The reality will hit in August!!!! Sally

The pictures are amazing and how you captured the "blue hour". The tree is beautiful. I would love it! Hopefully all the bad storms are over!

You are a much better player in the dirt than I am! Lydia Grace and you would be kindred spirits for sure!

Thinking of you!

It is a.o.k. to take some time apart from the world. Feet up and deep breathes in!

God bless you and may this spring/summer season be sweet because you are.

God bless,

Hello Marilyn,
I have had a good catch up on your lovely blog. How is retirement coming along? Well I hope : )
Your flowers here are gorgeous! Hopefully your weather will be more cooperative for your gardening pleasure.
I hope you are doing well.

I love flowering bushes/plants/trees of all kinds. I don't have allergy problems so I'm always good to go. Beautiful.

Now...about all the great finds here in Oklahoma? I think you are RIGHT. Good stuff comes's payback from our great DIRT being blown away during the dust bowl of the 1930's. You know Nebraska's great black dirt actually belongs to Oklahoma, right????
