Any spare time has been spent in the gardens. One of the nice signs of spring's arrival is the blooming of the cacti. I love this very prickly cactus with it's heart shaped paddles and stunning flowers.
This cactus was started two years ago with a single paddle. It is almost to the roof now.
The flowers on it bloom in yellow.
This pink cactus is one in a pot with giant and showy flowers.
We had several birthdays in April including these three grandchildren.

Easter was celebrated at our son’s home with the extended family – aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. It was a spectacular day filled with fun and joy. We took lots of photos, but here is a shot of the grandchildren all together (minus 1).
This is a picture as we were trying to round everyone up for a group shot – not an easy task when there are around 150 people.
I’ll try to do a better job of showing some sewing projects in my next post - if I remember how to use the sewing machine. ;-)
