Five on Friday: Spring Things

1. Iris' in bloom. Honestly, explosion would be a better term. These flowers have outdone themselves this year. There are at least fifty blooms in my front yard. 

 2. Kitten kisses. The Carpool Queen went and got a baby this week. His name is Max, and he is the sweetest little thing.

3. Nursery view. Every spring I head out to my nearest wholesale greenhouse. It's warm and humid and smells of soil, and I love it.

 4. Slow slithering. When you live in the country you have to take the good with the bad. Thankfully this baby Copperhead was still a wee bit slow when my husband accidentally stepped on him.  The snake was fine, and slowly slithered away. I hope he's the last snake we see this year.

5. I really wanted to steal Max from CPQ's house yesterday, but she threatened to check my bags before I left. Plus, Max has eyes for only one girl... it was amazing to see how he would mew for Susan and then do his best to crawl up in her lap to rest. We spent four hours together just sitting and watching this creature sleep and play... best four hours ever.

Happy Friday!
