While out geocaching with my sister Deb last week we spotted these beautiful Lilac trees. We followed the coordinates to locate the geocache but it had been removed. In the downtown area of West Plains. Mo there were several of these bright pink lilac trees.
We had to have a selfie along with one of them.
I love their splendid color!! Even with all the midwest heat they are thriving.
Traveling across the Kansas plains you see plenty Y's in the form of Wind turbines. There are more than 52,000 of them across 41 states.
Kansas ranks 5th in wind production alongside also being known as the Wheat State and Sunflower State.
I caught these from our car, Ynot take some shots!!!
The biggest wind project was completed in 2017 outside Dodge City Kansas. It has 122 turbines. To give you an idea if you haven't seen them in person, the blades are 173 feet long and the towers are 262 feet high.
I really enjoy seeing the size difference up against the farm machinery.
Funny how things get switched around as we get older, we took care of our children so much and now they are beginning to do the same for us.
Our grands like to give stuffed animals to Papaw nowadays. When our oldest grand was in San Francisco a few weeks ago she bought this bear for Papaw. Usually its the parents bringing them back to little ones.
Isn't that a good message.
This little duo from our grandchildren sits on the monitor reminding us everyday.
I don't think you get too old to enjoy little softies!!
Nellie is my beautiful Momma who is 92 and this was taken just a few weeks ago.
She is a Mom to four girls and wife of 46 years. My Dad passed away 26 years ago and she has remained single. She does have a friend who goes to country music dances with her and takes her to church.
She has been such a wonderful example to us four girls--she has a servants heart. She took care of her mother and father in law before their deaths and my Dad who suffered with cancer for the last four years of his life. She suffered the loss of a daughter, our sister Katy with heart failure in 2016.
We adore the woman and Mom that she is.
I see a speck of blue on my Aunts top behind Mom so I'll link with BLUE MONDAY
My oldest granddaughter is a member of her High School Symphony Orchestra and they took a trip last month to San Francisco. They competed in a nation wide competition and their orchestra placed 2nd in the country!! What a great experience for her and fun for us to see some beautiful pictures.
I really like this one in front of a beautiful dragon mural.
