A Welcome Visit -- Whirlwind Though It Was!!!!

If you are looking for the TSG Blog Hop Post, just scan down below this post. Thanks for stopping in and blog hopping for TSG!!!
Well, on a personal level, this was a cool weekend, as my nephew 'flew' in with his wife for a whirlwind wedding weekend. They are actually at the wedding in Massachusetts as I prepare this post. Many of you, both far and near friends, hear me talk about my nephews and godchild, so I thought I would share this picture with you. It has been a tradition (mine, lol!!) since the boys were young that whenever they came to visit, we took pictures under this Japanese Maple 'Bush' (really more like a tree). They used to fight me on this, but now they pose and smile, cuz they know that is now an official!!!! Jason and Lauren live in North Carolina now, so we don't see them very often. This year we were lucky because we had a family wedding they attended, as well as a couple of friends' weddings, like today's. I hope his friends continue to get married, as I get the bonus of seeing them whenever this happens.

While I had my camera available, I decided to take some pictures of some of my poppies that are blooming. They are gorgeous and such a vibrant color, but they don't last long. I must say that I am amazed that these poppies continue to 'pop' up each spring, as I truly do NOTHING to help them along. I do not have the green thumb in the family. My thumb used to be a bit greener, but now it has lost that!!!! (Maybe from the pressure of all that stamping????)

Well....I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.
