Favorite Season

When asked the question of what is my favorite season my answer has always been fall, mostly because of that's when the air cools after the heat of the summer and well, I really don't like the heat but as L and I were walking around our yard I couldn't help but think about how much I love spring too, since all of my flowers and plants pushing their way through the earth into gorgeous blooms. And of course I love starting my vegetable plants while so many people tell me oh you could just go buy those at the store and plant them. Nope, I love to nurture a plant from seed into vegetables for my family to eat. I'm still doing my daily photo but I post it just for my family but here are the past few days of spring around my yard.

A lonely tulip in a mass of iris.

L did a Mother's day project at church which made me feel like I had a preschooler already which makes me both happy and sad... I'll get into that another day!

Our beautiful flowering tree which was planted where we can't see it which makes me oh so sad when spring comes. It's on the side of the house that faces the neighbors house where we never go. I only get peeks of it from our bedroom window. We did not plant it, otherwise I would have picked a better spot! We were told is was an ornamental peach, but I have no idea if that's right or not.

My beautiful bushes!
