taking a moment to find joy in the little things
We had the opportunity to go to central Oregon for a long weekend. It's our favorite getaway and we got to spend time with several other couples from our church. Although the weather was frigid, we had a nice time. On our last day, the skies were blue and clear and we had great views of the mountains.
and since it's May Day...here are some flowers for you!
the tulips are almost done
lupine is starting to bloom
and the chives are flowering now
We are having some pretty fantastic weather this week...sunny and warm! Getting outside is a must. See that beautiful rhododendron bush? I love it when it blooms! I'm so happy it survived the ice storm we had in February. I wasn't sure how it would affect the blooms this year.
Here's a closer look....
These two are really the best of friends lately.
They make up stories and games and spend hours upon hours together.
Thanks to a Barnes & Noble gift card, I have a pile of good books waiting to be read!
I got my annual delivery of dirt and mulch. I love the fact that it's time for gardening, but it's also overwhelming. I always have so many plans, but I can hardly keep up with the bare minimum when it comes to the yard.
