Miss Laura has been painting rocks and leaving them in her driveway for us to take and spread the love and she always has new rocks available and mom and I are taking and spreading the love. Miss Laura is so sweet!
This very small bush is next to Landlord Bob's mailbox. We think it's a wild Azalea?
We think this could be an Indian Hawthorn shrub?
We're sure this is a dandelion☺
This lilac is more blue than some of the others on our walk and smells so wonderful!
The Lily-of-the-Valley is in bloom and our house has vases of it everywhere!
My mom isn't one for white potatoes as a rule but she was hungry for them and decided she wanted mashed potatoes for dinner one night which meant that she had leftover mashed potatoes. Now what to do with them. She decided that mashed potato cakes might be fun. She's never had them before. She took 2 cups of mashed potatoes and added an egg and some minced garlic and flour and parmesan cheese and some Mrs Dash's Italian seasoning and combined these ingredients in a large bowl.
Then she divided the potato mixture and coated the patties with panko breadcrumbs.
In a large skillet, she put a small amount of oil and cooked the patties about 5 minutes per side until they were browned.
It's time consuming but they're done.

The patties were good but mom didn't think they were tasty enough to make again. She says they were basically glorified mashed potatoes in a patty shape and she spent a half hour washing all the dishes!
I thought the patties were excellent, mom!

Mom is such a dummy when it comes to the names of trees but the blossoms sure are pretty!
We found tiny cute Bluets~
The ferns are unfolding~

The baby robins hatched on May first and mom stole a pic when Mrs Robin was out shopping for food~
This picture was taken on Monday the 4th. We count 4!
And now the saddest thing ever. Yesterday morning, around 10am, mom checked on Mrs Robin and the babies and she noticed an empty nest so she ran outside and checked the ground for the babies and the trees for parents. They're gone. The babies weren't even one week old.
Everyone of them is gone and we are so sad. We feel so bad for Mr and Mrs Robin. RIP, little baby Robins. We had such fun watching you grow.
