Riley Gardens & Hot Springs

Here is Riley in his flower garden with his paper pieced rubber boots and watering can! I got the felt flowers and rick rack at Hobby Lobby in the Easter stuff. This is a matchbook card, it opens from the bottom. The sentiment is from the set Things Hanna Would Say. He is so ready for the warm sunshiny weather, me too!
It's supposed to be in the 70's today, but, storms are expected for the next few days, ugh. We have had enough rain for now, geeeez. We went to Hot Springs over the weekend and went shopping downtown where all the shops are, some of them were closed do to flooding, it was bad, the water was up to the tops of car tires, dang. This is a historic area and the buildings are old and beautiful, what a shame. Here are a few pic's I took of the area.
This rock looks like it was covered with cement or something and it's breaking away. People are not allowed to park in the row next to the wall.









We went to Oaklawn to the horse races too! I won BIG! I bet $2 on a horse named Daughtry to win, he did, I was so excited. After taxes I was $15.67 richer, LOL! Here are some pic's of the races, I didn't get a pic of my winning horse, I was to excited to take pic's at that time, LOL! The poor jockeys were just covered in mud, the track was so muddy.

Seems I'm having problems moving my pic's around today, pffft. When I'm doing the post they look great, but when I look at the preview they are all in a line, what's up with that? Oh well, at least you can see them.
The dogwoods were in full bloom there, they are further south than we are. Ours should be blooming in the next couple of weeks. The woods are just full of them, those and redbuds in early Spring.
Well, I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
