There is Beauty All Around

I love this time of year. There are so many beautiful things to see outside. I have been surprised at how many of my baby plants have decided to bloom and show their beautiful colors. I thought I would have to wait until next year to enjoy them, but my clematis, roses and bleeding heart are just beautiful!

I also love how my variegated willows have gotten in on the show. Pink and white leaves just make me happy!
Also, the robins built another nest under our deck this year and we are currently enjoying the baby birds.
But, in my opinion, nothing is more beautiful than my little girls playing outside. Even if I have to don a very ugly mask to join them!
And, it looks like we may be able to truly make everything around us beautiful. The HOA is doing research that will enable us to lease and finish the green space around us as our own lot. A lot of work, but a great thing...no more weeds or junk trees!


  1. Oh my holy cute picture of our girls. They are so cute and funny. I wish I could be home with you all right now!

    And the yard is looking amazing. It figures that now that we're done with our yard, we get the additional acre to now work on finishing off. No rest for the weary!

  2. Your yard is beautiful, as are those precious girls!

  3. I wish that my yard looked as beautiful as yours does! Maybe we will get there after Rich takes his test!

  4. The yard looks fantastic...you did a great job planning, planting and now you can enjoy your beautiful yard...sweet!
