Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

Post a Week

I could tell you about the Floyd Mayweather  boxing match over this past week-end. He is pretty close to the Great Rocky Marciano’s record of 49 fights unbeaten. Floyd has 46 wins no loses. This is not about Spring because this could have been scheduled anytime, never the less it happened this week end.

How about Sprit Cup – NASCAR Race  – Sunday May 4,2014. The Aaron’s 499 miles won by Deny Hamlin.  They race most ever week end in there schedule. Again this could happen anytime of the season.

Now let me tell you about something that happens every year first part on May for the past 140 years. The Kentucky Derby was this past week end, it only happens in the spring. I copied a Photo and part of the article by Reuters that was on yahoo. I wasn’t there in person but I watched it with my wife on TV. I would like to have been there.

(Reuters) – The connections of Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome have already turned their attention to the Preakness Stakes after their star colt showed no ill effects from his brilliant victory in the opening leg of the Triple Crown.

Art Sherman, the horse’s 77-year-old trainer, said California Chrome had pulled up well and would remain in Louisville before heading to Maryland for the Preakness on May 17.

“He’s fine,” Sherman told reporters outside the winner’s barn on Sunday morning. “He left just a handful of grain in his tub last night, but that’s all. His appetite was good.”

Sherman said he wanted to keep California Chrome in work at Churchill Downs and was still undecided about when to move him east as he contemplates the formidable task of trying to win three races in five weeks.


Last year I showed you photos of all the beautiful flowers that are blooming around me but this year I want to show you a picture that really represents spring.  Our Garden!

You know that it is spring when you see gardens start popping up. I wish I could say that this was an easy job and it was at least most of it. Happy Spring.


One thought on “Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

  1. What great choices for Spring, Jim. You captured what YOU are doing with spring, and that’s what makes it interesting. We went out and bout two peach trees, tomatoes and some herbs yesterday. Our garden is going to be small this year. Vince didn’t get in the garden mood this year. It’s been spring here for a while, and this week the temps are supposed to get over 100. We’ve enjoyed spring by enjoying being in it, not working. Hope you had a nice Mother’s Day celebration with your wife and family. Keep up the great writing. Nice to see a newsy post. Love your garden photo. 🙂
