Saturday Snapshot - April 11

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

First off, MAJOR APOLOGIES on my part!  As you may have noticed, I accidentally deleted last week's Saturday Snapshot post a few days ago.  It was really a case of me clicking in just the wrong place at just the wrong time.  I tried to find a way to bring it back, but no success.  I promise to be more judicious with my mouse from here on out.

Okay, onto this week.  Spring is starting to hit our front yard!  I have a couple of exciting bloom pictures--both of which I edited with an app/site called BeFunky.  I just found out about this on Thursday (yesterday as I'm typing this) and I'm in love!  It's free (although there is a premium membership, but all I can tell that it gives you is more frame options) and it is a local (to Portland) company, so that is cool.  I highly recommend it.

Anyhoo, onto the pictures:

Yes, that is almost a rose! I think we'll have full-fledged roses in a few days!

My lilac bush is in bloom!  I love lilacs and I really had to work to get my husband to plant this ONE, so I'm getting all the enjoyment out of it I can.


  1. Oh, what a great site that is! Thanks for sharing the gorgeous blooms.

  2. Beautiful blooms! My roses don't even have buds yet and neither do the lilacs outside my dining room window. I hope they catch up soon!

  3. Lilac is so beautiful, and smells fantastic too. Your rose looks like it will be gorgeous too.

  4. Your roses look great. Normally ours are close to bloom but it appears that they are a week or two from that at least.

  5. I LOVE lilacs!! My plan for today is to buy a new lilac tree and plant it because our old ones got too old and no longer bloom. Your flowers are lovely - we are finally seeing some blooms starting to come out!!

  6. Ohhh I love lilacs. Beautiful pictures!

  7. I love lilacs but the bushes are not that lovely the rest of the year. I crave their fragrance, though.

  8. Nice pics. No flowers blooming here yet - still waiting for all the snow to disappear, but at least it is starting to go now. I Like BeFunky. I sometimes use it when I want to put quotes or captions on a picture.

  9. Such pretty flowers! I can't get enough of spring either :)

    Thanks so much for recommending our Photo Editing Suite, BeFunky. Please reach out to me if you have any questions about our web/mobile app.
