Spring has sprung

Spring is finally here!
We think the girl got spring fever, because she isn't letting us visit our friends' blogs very often. She claims it is because she is working too much and her computer keeps overheating and turning off. She promises that we will have more time to visit again soon. Sure. Sure.
Look at all the pretty flowers in my back yard.
These yellow flowers are my favorite.
But these red ones are nice too. They are sweet and hummingbirds like them.
Our neighbor has some orange trees. Some of the branches hang over our fence.
The flowers make our yard smell really yummy. Even the prickly pear cactus is pretty in the spring.
The girl got rid of most of the gross white fuzzy bugs on the cactus, but now guess what we found?

You have the same sort of plants as us - but I don't think we have any bugs on our prickly pears -plenty on some of the other plants though.

We had an orange tree. It died. It was only a baby. We still have a baby lemon tree though and that smells lovely.

Your mom's garden looks so different from our mom's! We've heard that orange blossoms smell just Heavenly! Maybe one day we'll get to visit AZ! Your yard sure is pretty!
Happy Easter to all of you!

Pretty plants! Oooh, the cactus is dangerous. Have you been pricked by it accidentally before? Oh, what's on the cactus plant right now?

Love licks,

You sure have a gorgeous yard. But I would watch out for those cactus! Even with all your furs, you could get stuck!
Happy Easter!

We'd love to have a garden like yours! Even with the scary cactus!
Tell us what you found in the cactus!
Have a great sunday

Your look especially nice in the picture with the yellow flowers. Make sure you don't step on the cactus or you will have to have another operation on your foot.

Your friend,
Niamh
