Weekend Roundup - P

 This week's assignment: Starts with P, Favorite, and Paper.

Starts with PPretty in PINK. On one of our backroad rambles, I found this beauty in an overgrown fence row. I don't know what kind of tree it is, but it sure was beautiful all decked out in blooms.

Favorite: Meet PATRON. He is not only a handsome fella, but a real sweetheart.

Paper: This is one of the many books I have read over my lifetime. It's pages are made of PAPER! The bookmark is a souvenir Granddaughter brought me from Europe. And, lucky me, it also has PINK roses. :)

Springtime in Oklahoma

One of my favorite things to do on a beautiful spring day, is to take a drive down the backroads. On this particular day, I was on the lookout for blooms. I don't know what kind of trees/bushes/flowers these are, but I found each of them worthy of a picture. 

Daffodils blowing in the wind.

I do know this is Wisteria.  

We stopped on a bridge to take in the beauty of new leaves and this colorful stream with the sky and trees reflected in the water. We enjoyed the quiet, broken only by an occasional bird.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead!

The Weekend Roundup - O

 This week's assignment: Starts with O, Favorite, and Old.

Starts with O: This OVEN is located on the grounds of Fort Washita. It was built far away from the buildings to keep from heating the kitchen during the hot OKLAHOMA summers. 

What was very OLD is partially new again.

Favorite: Well, ya'll knew a horse would be in this post somewhere. This picture was taken during a recent visit to Oaklawn racetrack in Hot Springs, AR. This horse was a winner.

Old: This is a very old sign located at the exit to Ouachita National Forest. It is near Hot Springs, AR. Hubs took me to the lake where his grandfather proposed to his wife. It's a beautiful area.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Weekend Roundup - M

 This week's assignment: Starts with M, Favorite, and Metal.

Starts with M: MALLARD starts with M. MEET MRS. MALLARD. 

Favorite: And, of course, MARE works out just fine for my favorite M. Love this little lady in the front. 

Metal: This METAL sculpture graces the main street in Hot Springs, AR. I think it was in front of an eclectic museum—ghosts and such. This is a drive by shooting. I took it from the passenger seat of Hub's truck, through the driver's side window, as we were driving down the street. Barely got it before it was too late.

Have a wonderful weekend!
