ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " N "



NOW we are NEARING the half way point of ABC Wednesday.

The first word that came to mind was NATURE.
Our backyard is bursting with NEW life.

The trees are sprouting NEW leaves.




Our grapes have begun winding their tendrils around the trellis wire.



Some poppies have decided to set up housekeeping in the rough
and (k)NOBBY cinderblock wall.



NATURE seems to be smiling kindly on our Almonds this year.
I hope they will develop into some tasty NUGGETS.
Last year the NUTS  NEVER developed into good food.



The wisteria blossoms are trying so hard to survive the NAUGHTYwind we had.
The wind was determined to (k)NOCK every petal from the bush.

A big thank you to Denise NESBITT for encouraging us by posting
ABC Wednesday every week.

Please enlarge the photos to see the detail and then go to the
ABC link on my sidebar to see what others have posted for the
letter N.

Warm greetings among rapidly melting snow and wet backyard ! Your beautiful photos bring a spring to me. Hares have eaten my crocuses, now I am waiting for daffodils.
I wish you and your husband health and happiness !

since your knees are hurting from osteo walking is not good. that is why i go to the pool. i was in pain from hip, knee and back all from osteo A.... within 2 weeks of the pool exercise the pain was gone. if i walk to much it comes back. so i do 30 minutes in the pool and the 15 of walking. walking on a treadmill is a no no, doc said walk on grass or do the pool. hope you have access to a pool, it is truly a miracle what it does
