Outdoor Wednesday

It's just too darn cold outside right now. The sun is out, but its coooold!

So here are some interesting pictures I took a couple of years back when it snowed after the cherry trees outside my office had bloomed.

Cherry Blossoms in the Snow!

Postcard Friday

I don't actually own this one, its posted on a Fayetteville History website. This was the first actual building built for the University of Arkansas. This building was completely restored in the 1980's and is a beautiful building. I had classes in here when I was a student. Interesting note is that a clock appears in the South Tower. There was not actually a clock installed until 2005 although at one time numbers were painted on it. The plans included a clock, but it was not realized until 2005. Senior walk begins at the front steps of this building and the grounds in front of it are now an arboretum.

Just a piece of Arkansas history!

Postcard Friday

Here is my entry for Postcard Friday, sponsored by Marie at:

This is a postcard from what they used to call motor courts. When I was growing up, my Dad worked for Southwestern Bell, and one summer they sent him to the small northern Arkansas town of Berryville to work. We went with him and this is where we stayed. It was a great summer, we ate in the cafe there, swam in the pool all the time. I have not been back to Berryville in a long time, so I dont know if it is still there. Since it is a small town, it may very well be. Note the phone number...
So enjoy my post today and happy weekend...!!!

Outdoor Wednesday in Arkansas

More snow! Sunday night it snowed again, and I have been stuck in the house passing another kidney stone. At least I had drugs this time, and I slept a lot! So I dont have any new pictures for outdoor Wednesday, because I didnt get out to take any. So here is a picture of my grandchildren and great nephew at our Wedding in October....ahhh..Those were the days, sunshine, warm weather, greenery. Be patient, it will come again...

Meanwhile enjoy some other outdoor shots:
