I'm joining Aisling over at The Quiet Country House in a Sunday Stroll. You can share yours too, just do it and then post it over on her blog. This afternoon my mother called me and said her cousin had sent me some cucumbers and squash from her garden. And since it is such a nice day and since I am feeling so good today, I thought I'd make it my stroll.

Oh my goodness, the wild plum trees have plums. Did you know when I was a little girl I'd eat green plums?? I just couldn't wait until they were ready. I'm passing on them today thank you very much.

And look! The wild blackberries are blooming too. It seems a little early to me, but maybe not.

Here's my parent's travel trailer. They are loading it for their big trip to Colorado. They are leaving tomorrow.

I wish you could smell the Jasmine. My mother doesn't care for it so she says it is my Step-father's and it is taking over the car shelter. But it smells like heaven to me.

This is my mother's butterfly garden that has become the Frog garden. Nothing much blooming here yet.

The chives are blooming. I happen to like chive blooms.

Oh my goodness, my favorite, and my mother only has this one now. Gladiolas, and these are orange. The plant was so big, the wind had blown them over. My mother had to hold them up for me to take a picture and then she clipped them off.

Does this look like a bottle brush to you? That's what it is , a Bottle Brush plant. It is a favorite nesting bush for the birds. In fact, there is a nest in it right now with 3 blue eggs.

These are some weird wild flowers that are blooming in the wild flower garden. I won't say what my mother says those things in the middle look like, but you can imagine. Still I think they have their own kind of charm.

Here they are, my parents, planning their route to the big state of Colorado. I wish I were going some place. Any place.

Sweetie finds bones that my parent's dog buries when we visit, but she is polite and always buries them back, although maybe not in the same place where she finds them.

Ah, there's my bag of spring veggies.

And I get to have the Glads too! I'll have to come back in the car to carry my loot home.

Thanks for joining me on my stroll. And thanks Aisling for reminding me to take time to enjoy the world around me, even if it is just in my own surroundings.
Happy Sunday!

I love your photos: splashes of sunshine on everything. I especially like the jasmine. I often where jasmine essential oil as my perfume. I just love the fragrance. I'm so glad you got out and took a walk in the sunshine. Enjoy those veggies and beautiful glads!

Thank you Aisling. I love the Jasmine too, in fact this is weird I know but my Gynocologist's office smell like Jasmine and so does she. She is from Nigeria and her accent and that smell of Jasmine makes me so relaxed and actually makes my blood pressure lower when I go for a visit. I was really picky about finding a Doctor and I think it was the Jasmine that did Go figure.

I've never even seen chive blooms but I like them! I'm so glad to know you like glads . . . another similarity of ours, I guess. The are NOT just funeral flowers! My mama had pink ones planted by the mailbox when I was a little girl and I LOVED them!

Hey Amy, I do love them, the Glads. They always make me smile when I see them, which isn't very often, people don't seem to grow them much anymore.
