Here is more of the "Lion" beginning of March!
I opened the door to the back screened porch and this is what I saw this morning! We own a little bit of the woods, the Country Club owns the rest of the woods to the 3rd hole on their golf course. The golf course has a pond on it and that overflowed its banks and cascaded into the woods. We have never had the water come into our yard but it came close one time when they were working on the golf course. They had dammed up the pond and it rained for 2 days, the water overflowed the dam they had made, came into the woods and up to our sod in the backyard! We have flood insurance just in case something happens. Thank goodness we have never had to use it!
The flooding from the pond on the golf course has also cascaded into our neighbors yard. They actually have more flooding than we do.
This is the view of our backyard from the landing on the second story. You can see the flooding in the yard.
The rain has blown so hard and it pelted all these lovely little raindrops all over my clean windows! The realtor suggested I clean all the windows, even though they weren't dirty. She said people love sparkling windows. I had told her the rains hadn't come through yet and she said to do it anyway! Well I wish I had waited. I have 42 windows in my house and it takes me forever to clean all of them! Oh well!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
