Sorry, I don’t smoke.
In response to the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/but-no-cigar/
Tell us about a time things came this close to working out… but didn’t. What happened next? Would you like the chance to try again, or are you happy with how things eventually worked out?
I did not go for a walk yesterday – just didn’t work out. Everything ran late in the morning with mom and dad (for dad’s appointment), so I got to work late and was also feeling pretty exhausted because of getting up at 4:00 am. AND it was raining. So, no walk – close, but no cigar (someday I’ll look up where this expression comes from). But, I’ll walk today, pending rain, perhaps in a new direction…
Did you like that way I bent today’s prompt to my will (and already composed post)?
Anyway, no walk, but here are some things I saw going on in my back yard yesterday after work (sorry, no bees yet – the cocoons are all still safely unhatched – and no hummers yet…)
In addition to tulips coming up everywhere (when they bloom, are there going to be pics!), here are some hostas returning:
Our cherry trees (Rainier cherries) are just blooming now
Don’t know exactly what this is, but it’s coming up, and it’s NOT a weed!
And here is a cool-looking hellebore leaf.
It’s getting exciting back there!
