About that Monday post

Flowering ornamental cherry tree (I think)

I just spent a bit of time trying to discover whether the bright pink flowers on the trees all over town are ornamental cherry or not. They are everywhere right now, gorgeous to look at, and the ones I've seen every year don't seem to produce any fruit, so I'm guessing they are ornamental. It doesn't really matter: I am enjoying them too much to worry about what they're called.

I went to bed a little early last night, just feeling tired and wanting to lay there in bed thinking about the day and getting myself ready for a good night's sleep, when my Apple Watch vibrated to let me know I had a phone call. Since my iPhone was in the living room, I answered it on my Watch (I don't usually do that). It was my friend John calling to ask me where my Monday post was. I groaned and let out an expletive and realized that I am continually forgetting to write that Monday post. Probably it's because I write once a week on my other blog, on Sunday mornings, and I don't have much desire to come up with something new so soon. So, I've decided that my Monday posts will appear on Tuesdays, whatever I decide to call them. Welcome to the New World!

It was supposed to be raining today, but other than a few stray raindrops, it's been pretty dry and almost sunny. I walked by the Cornwall Rose Garden to ascertain that many of the plants are now heavy with leaves, but I couldn't see any rosebuds. Yet, anyway. I'm looking forward to seeing them appear and turn into lovely roses, which I will share with you, of course.

And who should hop out in front of me as I got to the trail, but these two bunnies. The little cottontail closer to me is smaller enough from the other for me to speculate that this is a new little guy. When he saw me, he froze the way bunnies do, and as Mom hopped across the trail, he stayed very still and never took his eye off me. I talked to him but he doesn't speak Human yet, and after a fair amount of time he followed her off into the bushes, and I continued my walk home.

There are plenty more clouds than rays of sunshine right now, but the temperature is mild and I can feel myself gearing up for spring. I think even I might have experienced my fill of rain for the time being!

  1. I am glad that John keeps you on the straight an narrow. Perhaps you can refer to these posts as late Monday ones? And just to confuse the issue it is Wednesday here.
    I love your ornamental blossoms, and the bunnies. We have rain predicted for later. I hope we get it - though some will not agree.

  2. It matters not what day you post, DJan. I would read it any day. Don't think I post on any special day... just when the mood strikes me or I have something to share. The bunnies are adorable. Still sad over our lost kitten...

  3. I've been unable to leave comments lately, it seems your comment box has changed, it could just be my computer :(
    Beautiful blossoms on the trees, I only wish they lasted longer.
    What sweet bunnies, I love seeing them, especially in the spring, when everything is bursting with new life.

  4. I just post something when I have something (usually photos) to share. And I'm wondering if any of those trees are crab apples.

  6. OK Tuesday it will be. Hey, we are flexible and you are allowed to be also.
    Who doesn't love bunnies? I saw one outside my window today and they always make me smile:)

  9. Cute bunnies! At our age, why should we have to do anything? Blog when you feel like it and don't blog if you feel like it. It all works out in any case.

  10. I love the cherry blossom. It's a pity it doesn't stay on the tree for longer, just one gust of wind and the petals fall like confetti. Don't worry about what day you blog as long as you manage to post something regularly.

  12. I just read whatever comes up on my feed, so I lose track of who posts when. Except I know that you always do a Sunday post, as does someone else.

  13. How wonderful to have two bunnies cross your path. Those cherry blossoms are show stoppers. We are not to the blossoms of spring yet.

    Whenever you write, I will follow, Jan.

  15. Love the bunnies. I get your posts later all the time anyways and read them all--even if I don't always comment. You do whatever is easier for you. :)

I really appreciate your comments! If you see a word verification box here, just ignore it. I don't use the darn thing and Blogger is trying to get us to use it, I guess. Ignore it and your comment will still appear.
