taking a moment to find joy in the little things
On Mother's Day we went for an afternoon hike to an area known for its variety of wildflowers. There were so many different kinds and I had fun capturing some.
I am thrilled with my garden and yard this year. It's so fun to see how big and hearty the perennials are getting. Each year they look better and better. This is the first year I don't feel the need to spend a ton of money to add plants. I was also excited to see the seeds I planted a couple weeks ago sprouting.
I planted this clematis last year and it was pathetic. Now it's growing and blooming quite nicely!
The hostas get bigger and fuller every year, too.
And the foxgloves (I got for free) are blooming. They keep spreading so I have more and more every year.
Dead giveaway that we are homeschoolers!!
I lied a little bit earlier when I said this was the first year I don't feel the need to spend $ and add plants. I really want to create a beautiful path and garden on this side of the house. I have several ferns and hostas to work with. I also got a bunch of rocks from our church property for free last week. My goal is to create something nice and pretty with minimal to no investment. The problem is that I think I will need dirt and mulch and that will cost $. I hate the chain link fence and would love to cover it up somehow. Suggestions are welcome....
