  11. I am an entire week behind on reading your posts so posting one comment for the weeks worth I just went through. I adore your flower pictures and your WW group was so fun to go through. You are entirely too lucky to have gotten to go to the concert and I really like his music - might have to go to Itunes and find more! LOL Spring is struggling here - still covering the not-so-hardy plants in my garden that thought it was Spring but struggling with the severe frosts we are still having.
