April Fool's and Garden Tour Thursday

Ooh, we messed up.  This was supposed to be tomorrow.  Well, ya can't the dates right all the time.  But read the post below first...  It will make a bit of mousie-sense then.

IZA:  Yeah, the Mac is working great and we are staying with it.  April Foolie.  MOL!


The daffodils are great.  The saucer magnolia trees bloomed wonderfully this year.  The mild Winter made the pansies bloom in abundance!

I'm saving most of the pictures for 2 slideshows in a coupke weeks, but some singles are worth showing.


Now I have some pictures of the garden...

TBT is saving most of the pictures for 2 slideshows in a couple weeks, but some singles are worth showing.  They are a week or so old.  I will arrange current tours starting next week.  We DO have some catching-up to do...

The backyard Saucer Magnolia went full-bloom this year; no flower-killing frost.  If TBT has one plant of joy, this is it.
The pansies also enjoyed the mild Winter.   I've never seen so many flowers on them, and I've been looking at them 10 years now!  But TBT says he is going to plant more and closer next year.  He says it should be a real "carpet".
The front yard Saucer Magnolia doesn't get enough sun (as I often complain I dont), but it does well enough and looks great with the early daffodils behind it.
And here they are up close.   The late daffodils are going to bloom in a couple weeks as these fade away.
The big daffodil bed around the birdfeeder is blooming well.  There are big patches of  early, mid, and late ones, so it always looks different.  Makes the display last longer too.  THere rtulips and hyacinths in cages to protect them from the voles, but those fancy types don't last many years.  TBT says he will dig up the cages and plant standard old red tulips.  They last decades.
This is a carpet of Saucer Magnolia petals on the lawn.  I like the quiet and softness ta walk on; he likes the color.

ARGGGH!

Our Mac crashed again!  We cant go on like this.  Pictures randonly disappear from iPhotos or won't open.  TBT does have a Windows 10 PC, so he is gonna set it up and see if it seems more stable.  He isnt thrilled, but he is gonna give Windows another attempt after 10 years.  *SIGH*!

The computer room is looking like a wired mess these days with all the correction attempts.


The Mac Migration Assistant says it can transfer files from and to both Macs and Windows, so he is giving it a try.  If we are offline a few days, we apologize, but this continuing Mac problem just HAS to end!

We'll be back as soon as we can...
