Colors of Spring & a few Golf Balls

Don't you just love the color of spring when you can again enjoy that outside area that has not been used for a long time.  Yes, this is my deck where we enjoy watching the ducks, squirrels, birds and ducking from the many off  the course golf balls. Yes I said golf balls!!!
 We live on the 7th fairway of the golf course.  This was my Big Jim's one requirement when we were looking for a house here 6 years ago that we live on the golf course. We never realized that we  would have to be very alert during the peak golfing times. I have been know to be setting on another part of the deck that is covered and have a golf ball almost land in my lap. Those of you that play golf know when you hit that driver off the tee that there is a pinging sound, well that is our signal to look to the sky and a my family says"In Coming". I can not count the ceramic flower containers that are no longer are in one piece.  We do love the area but we have learned to DUCK. I have been planning a patio table scape but will have to make sure it's day the course is closed.
Hope ever one has a wonderful day. I hope we here in North Texas don't end up in Oklahoma as the wind is blowing a gale. <;)
