Greetings and Salutations from Illinois!   I took some photographs of these flowers that are blooming in our backyard.  Spring has finally come to our area.   The weather is cool but starting to warm up into the 60s.  Life is grand!

This is what Lake Michigan looked like yesterday afternoon after 4:00 P.M.

"My friends and family are my support system.  They tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear, and they are there for me in the good and bad times.  Without them I have no idea where I would be and I know that their love for me is what's keeping my head above water."
