Some of you may have noticed some new additions to my "All About Me" section. If you want to sign my guestbook, I would be honored! For those of you who read my journal and don't comment because you don't have an AOL screen name, or for whatever other reason, I would love to know who you are. Give me a shout in my guestbook! Thanks! I am also trying to get a couple more things in there, but am having a very hard time. Ugh.
I haven't been playing Krissy's Photo Scavenger Hunt because I haven't been able to upload pictures without going to someone else's computer. Krissy and I worked something out, so hopefully I will be playing the Hunt and will be having "Up Close with Val" regularly really soon. Stay tuned! This week's Scavenger Hunt's subject was "tree or bush". I knew that I had taken alot of trees in the past. So I went into my software and picked out two trees that I had not shown before. These two trees are in my parent's yard. The weeping cherry tree is in their front/side yard by their driveway. It is stunning when it is in bloom in the Spring. I love weeping trees. I think weeping willows are my favorite tree. The spruce tree is in their backyard. They have two blue spruces. The one shown here is a bit larger than the other. This tree was planted, I am thinking, about 18 - 20 years ago. Is that right, Dad? Interesting, I can remember every tree and bush from my childhood yard. I love trees and bushes and plants! We had the most beautiful azalea garden in my youth. It was stunning! I miss it. If you want to play Krissy's weekly Photo Scavenger Hunt visit here.
Have a lovely weekend everyone! xox
