Since it's Mothers Day....

Thought I'd post a picture of a flower instead of another bird shot. However, I have many more bird shots to post from the weekend, but I think I can hold off for another day or so. This weekend we decided to buy some flowers for several pots we had that were empty and sitting on the deck. We bought $58 dollars worth of flowers and now I can't wait for the all the plants to fill in. This is a close up of one of the plants. I threw away the name I can't even say what type of flower this will be and to be honest I am not even sure what it will look like when it opens fully. So you'll have to wait till it opens and I'll post another shot...or better yet, maybe I'll go out daily and do a progression of it opening. And Mom, even though I couldn't be with you today, I thought of you all day long. I love you and hope you had a wonderful dinner over at Kay's.

Spring has sprung, the tree's are just starting to get their leaves and today was the first day I mowed the lawn. We have a ridiculous amount of dandelions coming in too, so Clayton got out the weed and feed and his twirly bird and hopefully that will green up the grass and take care of the nasty little dandelions. We will eventually get a few nice ferns growing around the rock as well, they are just starting to pop up along with a few other wild flowers. That rock in the middle of the lawn is actually the entrance to our well. Ssshhhhh it's a fake rock.


  1. Looks like you have your work cut out for you. There should be a fantastic garden to enjoy in a few weeks!

  2. it is going to be hot mowing in the summer and it is a lot more lawn to mow. Sorry to say the rock does look pretty fake:P.
