Easter Blooms

We celebrated Easter at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, which is starting to look like spring despite the tenacious winter weather. It has been wet, windy and in the low forties all week. Today was clear and sunny . . . but still cold. The magnolia trees are the first to bloom every year at the Garden. They don't look much like the tall, leafy magnolias down south. Susannah slept most of the time, but woke up in time to check out the cherry blossoms.

The Yulan Magnolia has the white blooms.

Back at home, she and Dad rocked out.

Our favorite little bunny.

As far as medical news goes, May 4 is the tentative date for her second surgery. (Her ureters will be reattached to her bladder.) The doctor said he probably won't operate that day if she has a UTI, so all we can do is cross our fingers and hope that it doesn't get dragged out.

Til next time....
