Spring has sprung!!!

I think, I hope we have seen the end of snow.  We had a beautiful weekend and I got out in the yard with my camera.
There are some remnants of last year still hanging around in the garden, as well as signs of new life!

There are still two blooms hanging on our hydrangea tree.  I'm quite surprised that they made it through all the snow and wind of that long winter!

These are seed pods on our magnolia trees.

Our Japanese maple is still holding on to it's leaves.

Hooray!  The maple tree is budding!

Buds on the red twig dogwood...

and buds on the snowball bush!

These little blue flowers are like crocus, because they pop up through the snow.

And the crocuses are bright and cheery, with no snow around them!

Spring is my favorite season.  I'm so glad that even when it seems winter may never end, we can trust that God will bring Spring!

Cooking Thursday

Last week I had a "girls night out",  supper at a friends home with some of the women in our Tuesday night Bible study.  We had a good time eating and talking!  She had made some brownies for dessert that we all thought were really good.  I asked for the recipe to share with all of you, and she told me they were the  easiest brownies ever!  So here you go - so easy and so good!

Symphony Brownies

1 brownie mix for a 9x13 pan
2 large Symphony candy bars

Prepare brownie mix as directed on box.  Pour half into greased 9x13 pan.
Lay Symphony bars over brownie batter, then pour remaining batter over candy bars.
Bake as directed on box.
