JerryPhoto_8x8_P1010031 Exciting times are here again as the succulents in our backyard are starting to bloom. I thought I would share a couple of photos of them with you to cheer up your day, especially if you live in the colder climates. We are looking forward to a week in or around the 80s! A little hot, but nice after some cold, wet weather in recent weeks.

Hope that you enjoy the blooms and that they cheer you up!  GLB

“Everyone has a breaking point, turning point, stress point, the game is permeated with it. The fans don’t see it because we make it look so efficient. But internally, for a guy to be successful, you have to be like a clock spring, wound but not loose at the same time.”
— Dave Winfield
