Isn't She Beautiful?

Here is a picture of my sister, Jaime. Jaime and Chris are expecting their first child at the end of May and I think she looks absolutely beautiful in this picture. She has a cute belly - as cute as Willow came out to be on the outside, she never looked this cute on me when she was on the inside!



Some Project Spectrum pictures - I couldn't find anything orange, so these are all yellow things I found in my in-laws' yard. Here is the goldenrod that the bees love to buzz in:



I tried to take a picture of the bees, but the little buggers wouldn't stay still!

Here are some of the daffodils:



We are lucky these are still standing! The weirdest weather system came through this morning and we had raging blizzard-like snow and lightning then bright sun - and this went back and forth 4 or 5 times... and when I got off work you would never have guessed - it was 50'F and sunny!

Here is an early yellow azalea:



And now for some non-yellow/orange things...

More asparagus! Many people had emailed me when I posted the first picture of the aspargus bud about a week ago, saying they had no idea that was how asparagus grew. Well, more stalks have come up and here is a better picture of what aspargus looks like just before you snip it. And let me tell you, freshly steamed aspargus from the garden is *heavenly*!



And another treat - an early purple rhododendron:

What lovely pics! So what do you think of the CD I made you? You can be as critical as you like since I didn't have much idea what music you liked it definitely reflects my taste rather than considering anyone else's!

Thanks Jo for putting my "cute belly" on your blog, I almost dodn't think I was going to have a belly, because of the lack of weight I have gained, but atlas the belly has come!!!! Love you, Jaimes
