flowers, I think it's spring!

This first picture is of the cactus that took a beating last summer in Colorado Springs in two hail storms!
it's not the prettiest cactus but it is blooming!
Anne and I went for a walk last night after dinner and we found some pretty flowers. This is a good time to be in the Rio Grande Valley

It was a busy day today. Before Breakfast I put a corned beef brisket along with some potatoes, carrots and onions in the crock pot. Jim and Scotty drove out to pick up our screen door. It had been dropped off to get some 'plastic' windows cut for it. While they were gone Anne and I went shopping. Only picked up a few things, the trip was mostly to get out of the house.
Found these flowers in front of the Dollar Store...Spring is popping out all over.
Jim was home when we got back he was putting the panel on the screen door. But alas one piece was left behind. So he had to make a return trip to pick it up. I put the cabbage in the crock pot to cook.

It only has the bottom panel and the small one in the center installed. He needs some clips so we can install the top one and remove it when we want to. It will come in handy when we turn on the air conditioner!
Anne and I got our hair cut today for the last time here. When we got home Jim had set the table and all I had to do was dish up our dinner. We ate on the patio and despite the gnats it was pleasant. I must say that we all ate well! It was sooooo good! We even had some Killian's Red to wash it down with. For dessert we had apple turnovers and we ate all four of them. Can you say stuffed? LOL
Whether or not you're Irish I hope you enjoyed your day. We did

May the Irish hills caress you. May her lakes and rivers bless you. May the luck of the Irish enfold you. May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.~Irish Blessing
