So off we went to Boise for our annual visit to Son #2, whose birthday is in April.
The good old Capitol Building is a fine historical and political marker.
The weather was not exactly California style -- showery and cold, but we came prepared with sweaters and jackets. We had highs of 53 F!
This looked kind of ominous, but it missed us and as you can see we were still in sunshine.
I'm missing Bailey, but this little love, Violet -- I call her Lady Lavender -- helped me along. What a little sweetie she was! She napped with me Saturday afternoon.
Boise is a blaze of blooms at this time of the year. Such a beautiful city in the spring time. This year the snow was still on the mountains around the basin. But I had to photograph these. I love catkins. They remind me of spring in England.
Sunday, the sunshine stayed warm enough for our early Mother's Day Dinner. This turned out to be a great photo -- and the meal just as great -- but we ended up indoors half way through. This was the first time we had met Vicki's parents, so it was an especial treat.
If we had sound on blogger, you would now hear Barry's coughing and sneezing in the background, as I gave my sniffles to him! I'm generous that way :)
