Last week it was springy -- windy and the trees are budding out.  This week it is not springy.  Oh well.   I took this shot in the wind -- I like the movement of the tree.

St. Patrick's Day

Last week I visited my favorite roadside cemetery -- and it just happened to be St. Patrick's Day.  While walking around looking at the carvings on the stones I spotted some shamrocks.

Someone wondered if the number seven was significant to this family -- since there are seven shamrocks on the stem.  That is an interesting question.

I really went to see the peach orchard behind the cemetery -- it was in bloom.  You can see orchard photos on my other blog.  This is the second time I wrote about the orchard on the blog.  I have also written about this cemetery before.

Every day when I walk into the back yard with the dogs I look up at the pine trees.  I really don't like pine trees.  To me, they are not good for much and just stand around, tall, waiting for lightning to strike.  At an old house we had three tall ones in the front yard.  This is when I liked pine trees.  One Sunday night, when my husband was out of town, there was a storm.  Lightning hit one of the trees near the house.  It traveled down the tree, across the sidewalk (cracking it and blowing dirt all over), went up the downspout, exploded the outside light, and fried anything in the house that was plugged in.  There was a huge scorch mark on the wall in the garage.

I like this photo.  I hate pine trees.

Southeastern Flower Show

Last Sunday I attended the Southeaster Flower Show at the Cobb Galleria.  They have a photography competition in connection with the show and I had a photo in that exhibit.  While there I walked around taking photos of the plants and flowers.  The display of orchids was pretty and I liked this photo for this week.
