You can see it has more water in it today. I couldn't decide which picture I liked better? Which one is your favorite?

The Maybrook and Backyard Flowers




This is our Maybrook in the backyard. It is the overflow ditch that runs when there is alot of water coming down from Maple Mountain in the spring. It just barely started running. Someyears it doesn't run at all, but it has run the last three or four years. So far this isn't much water, it hasn't really warmed up yet. This is probably because we had almost an inch of rain yesterday. The other pictures are the lilacs and cherry blossoms, plus the cute flowers my dd got for her flowerbed.

Rat Tail Cactus



Posted by Picasa

Several years ago my mom gave me this cactus plant. It has grown too big for the pot, and likes being root bound because it has given me a bounty of blossoms this spring. I neglect it woefully, but wanted to share it's beauty!
