Movie Star Mom and Colors of Spring

 Mom absolutely looks like a movie star!!!!  She had cataract surgery in one eye yesterday and has to wear these glasses when she goes outside.  She is NOT happy wearing the big plastic patch to bed at night, but it is necessary and she has 4 more nights of that to go.  Next Monday she will have surgery in the other eye and, uh-oh, eye patch for 5 more nights.  She has been a little miserable since the surgery that was at 6:30 AM yesterday, but tonight she suddenly sat up and said "I can see so much better!"  Thank God for eye surgery and a good surgeon!
 I drove around the neighborhood after taking Mom to post-op Dr. appointment this morning.  It is unbelievable that we had snow last Thursday and today it was 87* and gorgeous out.  Bushes, trees, and flowers are blossoming everywhere!  I thought I would share some of the beauty!!

Spring is here!!!
