Weekly Winners: March 9-15

Ah spring. It's here. Sorta.

Well, you can see in this week's offerings for Lotus' Weekly Winners that SOMETHING has started blooming at least!

Crape myrtle:

(I always want to call them crap myrtles. Yeah, I'm incorrigible!)


I swear she'd be a vampire if she could:

(Explanation: Edward Cullen is the main character -- and a "good" vampire -- in Roo's fave-rave books by Stephenie Meyer. Oy.)

Walking hand in hand into the sunset:

If you're offended by demontrations of boy love, sorry. But my boy is in love and isn't afraid to show it. And everything about it makes me happy.

Isn't it nice to see spring coming? Is it warm yet where you are? We've been having temps in the 80s already!

Doesn't offend me in the least bit, hapiness is what matters most in this world.:)

The picture of the tree is beautiful.

Miss Ann Thrope said...

Well, I'm totally offended....

What the hell were you thinking?

You couldn't have taken a pic of them smiling at the camera?

smoochies to roo!!

Cathy said...

Yeah - I'd like to see their lovey faces! Not their butts! But that's a great shot anyhow...
I love the spring shot - hoorah!

laura said...

Signs of spring! Rock on! :) :) Goodness! I can hardly wait for my trees to be sporting such beauty. Right now I'm just thankful for MUD. We had more than our share of snow this year.

Rebecca said...

I love the myrtle... And I'm glad your boy is happy. :)

wright said...

I love the pics! And Edward is too cool. (I've read all the teen books. I always wanted to know what my students were into. And I was always impressed to see a kid reading - anything, even when I hadn't assigned it!)

Scylla said...

What a great set of pictures this week!

I love "Walking into the sunset"! They both look so, you know, cutely in love.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

maggie's mind said...

I love the first one and the last one most for the same reason - both are a beautiful thing, and both are excellent shots.

Let's hear it for love and Spring! Or heck how about love IN Spring; nothing sweeter!

Have you gotten over the rival school issue? I think I'd still be at odds over that one.

I had a fargin bingo in scabble I couldn't play. Simply unfair.

Happy Campers said...

Your crepe myrtle shot is beautiful. I love Spring!!

That first photo is very pretty with all the pink.
And I'm glad your son has found some happiness :)

The Immoral Matriarch said...

I don't see any sunlight. Just cute bums.

Tasina said...

So many people with blossom pictures - I'm really jealous.

Love is gift...in any form. Good for him.

Jeanette said...

All your pictures are great!

Head Gaggler said...

Beautiful shots. Love the tree. And YAY for your boy. How nice to have found someone.

Phoenix said...

I'm so happy for your son. Thats a great shot.

The tree is beautiful....but we're supposed to have like 10 inches of snow tomorrow, so now I'm all sad. ;)

Wendy said...

I love to see some bright Spring colors:) And love is wonderful no matter what form it comes in!!

Alison said...

karisma said...

I love the picture. Its great! Anyone who could be offended by Love indeed has a problem.

Joy T. said...

It would take a whole lot more then a picture of two boys walking hand in hand to offend me. But I'm weird like that :o) I always LOVE coming over here for your Weekly Winners!

Pamela said...

I tried to grow crepe myrtle in our little valley. I think it gets toooo cold.

DIXIECHICK said...

All the pictures are wonderful...I want a shirt like Roo's....if I was 20 years younger..ha...instead..I will keep my fascination with Edward Cullen to myself. Love, love, love the last shot...I am so glad he is happy, that is what matters more than anything....from one mother to another....who the hell cares what anyone thinks....you didn't have to apologize for posting that picture.....it was beatuiful. Next time, show their lovely faces....
