End of May Flowers

Today I ran my fastest 5k since..well, since whenever my Nike GPS app started stalking me. It felt nice. It was 30 mins, something seconds. I’d like to do some sub-30s soon. Truth is though, after my run, you could barely tell I had ran.


Kidding! I was a lovely sweaty mess. As per usual!

Any other people blessed with Diabetes who frequently eat meals out of containers such as this?:


Yeah, I measure a lot of things (things being food). For those who don’t know, type one diabetics like myself determine insulin requirements for meals by looking at the carbohydrate component in their meal. That’s what I was doing this morning when I measured out my vanilla greek yogurt. No need to dirty two dishes!

I took a few photos today as I watered our flowers:


One of my faves is this purple clematis.


I also like this tiny rose tree. I have no idea what it is actually called. Maybe some sort of crab apple? If it is in fact a crab apple tree, than it is quite humorous that I have been calling it a “tiny rose tree.”

I did play around with the color of the lilacs. They are definitely pretty without any altering but I wanted to make them even more vibrant!


The kids, hanging out.


Some Irises. I didn’t alter the color of these at all. They are beautiful!

Lastly, a couple petunias.


Ever notice how nature mimics the human body? Every once in a while I look at trees and think “those really do look like lungs,” or I’ll look at a walnut and think “Yup, looks like a brain, totally one hemisphere of a brain.” For example, the above petunias; when I look at the darker purple lines I think “veins…obviously.” If you thought I was going to mention the irises, you are wrong.

Closing thought. If April showers brought us May flowers. Then what is May to June? May ______ brings June _____. ???

I know that for me, June is again a month about showers. 3 wedding showers. Wow.
