After a bit, I went outside with Hannah and took a walk around the house. I was fully expecting to have some mosquitoes out.... it was that warm... but I was mistaken. What I didn't expect to see was this:
These are our tulips which have totally lost their minds. They've been fooled by Mother Nature and there's nothing I can do to help them. I'm wondering what effect this will have on them in the real Spring arrives? Do any of you know?
I had some comments on my previous post regarding my older brother and what happened to him. In a nutshell (and I'll post more on it another time): He and my dad parted ways when I was 9 years old. My brother lived with my uncle until he graduated from high school and then he went to college for a bit. After college, he started a painting business, got married, had kids, got a divorce, remarried and had more kids. He and my dad did reconcile after many years. I don't which of them made the first move and it doesn't matter, I'm just glad they did. I always like to think that if my dad could relive that time in his life, he would have done things differently. Maybe tried to work it out instead of throw him out. They don't talk of what happened and it's very sad to me to think of all those years wasted by both of them. I do see my brother occasionally but the family closeness is not there like it is with my other siblings.
