Feeling Springy

I freely admit I'm not a good photographer. I also admit our garden is a work in progress.

No thanks to me. If it weren't for my Dashingly Handsome Sidekick, I'm afraid we wouldn't have any flowers and our grass would be very, very long in some places, bald in others, and filled with weeds.

Despite my lack of green thumb, I did venture out into the garden today with my little girls. I lay in the grass and let the sun shine on me. I admired the flowers. Not all the plants are flowering, but some are. The colors are so gorgeous, the sky so blue.

I love spring!

How is your spring going?

  1. I think those are really gorgeous! And our Texas spring is shaping to be very hot lately, but it's still beautiful. :)

  2. As of today, our spring feels like summer! It's been cold and wet, but today it's warm and sunny. It's wonderful!

  3. Your flowers are lovely, Amy!

    We've had a cool, rainy spring. Hoping for some better weather this weekend.

  4. I think your garden is lovely. I love gardens and fiction that features them. Have you read Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen?

    Awww... it's so beautiful.

  6. What a beautiful yard you have!

    Our Spring is very wet. I've enjoyed the cool air, but I wouldn't mind less mud. :)

  7. I am a complete black thumb and only plant vegetables because they are functional. I wish I could fill my yard with rocks so I wouldn't have to mow the lawn (my husband has terrible allergies). Your flowers make me want to earn a million dollars so I can pay someone else to make my yard beautiful:)

  8. Lovely garden. My OH is the gardener in our house too. In fact he spends so much time working in the garden that he rarely gets time to sit in it. Glad to hear you got out and got some sunshine on you.

  9. Oh, nonsense! You are a great photographer and your garden is lovely! I'm having enough trouble trying to get ours to actually bloom over here in Texas. The whole family has been outside picking weeds, fighting the mosquitos and wasps, fertilizing, and planting - but it all dies! Guess you can't do much about that in Texas.

  10. I love the spring colors, too! And the warm shorts and flip-flops weather!


Summer Recap

Summer!! has been a crazy whirlwind.  Are we actually starting school again in a few weeks? UNBELIEVEABLE. In the middle of June I finished...
