Really Random Thursday, 4/28/22

 Aaron and Christa were on a much-needed weekend away, so the grandkids were with us Friday afternoon through late Sunday afternoon. On Saturday, Charlotte was babysitting, and Gabe and Ella were at a birthday party, so Mark and I took Levi to Cold Stone, his favorite for ice cream. I tried to sneak a photo of him. You really have to be sneaky because he doesn't like his photo taken. This is what I got.

Our niece, Christina, sent us the coolest puzzle of Minnesota. She bought it off the shelf in a bookstore, and they warned her they could not guarantee that all the pieces would be there. Gabe spent a couple of hours putting it together, and sure enough, one piece was missing. It's still really cool, and his next project is to glue all the pieces to the frame.

Jasmine is blooming all around Fresno. I love its spicy scent, but Mark is not a fan. 
I'm not sure what this is--it blooms outside the master bedroom window and is also quite strong. There were a lot of bees buzzing around in this one.
And that's it for the last week of April.

I love the smell of the air when the jasmine blooms. You are ahead of us as ours won’t bloom for another month. I hate having my picture taken too. That is a cool puzzle.

Teenage boys. What can you do? Bet he hates even worse that you take his picture and then have the nerve to put it on your blog. We're in Kansas and the smells of spring are so wonderful here right now. It's nice to see green when we're not quite there yet in Colorado.

I believe your second photo is ligustrum, a common landscape shrub.
