    I have been enjoying the beautiful warm days we recently have had. The early flowering shrubbery is so beautifully blossomed out and my tulips are opening. My time of the year.

    I was so saddened to hear of the bombing at the Boston Marathon Monday afternoon. So many thousand there for a day of enjoyment, I never heard if it was a fundraiser for some needed charitable organization. To end so tragically, it just breaks one’s heart.
