goals for the weekend

Our goals are pretty simple: 1. Make this yum looking strawberry ice cream. Doesn’t it look the creamiest? Where can I get some pretty strawberries? 2. Pick up a couple more flowers at the garden store. The key here is that we need some blooming flowers. We have a lot of flowers in the growing stages, but we want some blooms to attract some more bees! Have a good one!

time to grow again

I love the Easter season. All the flowers and buds appearing. The promise of leaves in all the trees comes true. The sunshine and dirt on your hands. Being reminded that nature knows what its doing. May your weekend be filled with bunnies, blooms, and love. Have a happy holiday!

watercolor flowers

I’ve come to the conclusion that the only thing I can watercolor paint is flowers. I’m ok with that. I needed to write some overdue thank you notes, so I painted a rainbow patch of flowers for the fronts of the cards. Hopefully the cheery flowers make up for the lateness.

the great outdoors

Being outside really is great. Just a couple hours in the faux fall fresh air, and all my cares (except my constant worry about the state of the plants) slip away. I spent some time last week doing a little work around the yard.

There is no number high enough to describe the amount of times I have lost the clippers in the yard.

These flowers lost all their leaves at the end of summer, but they are making a strong comeback now.

I cleaned a bit of the gutter out, and a lizard almost killed me, but the view up there wasn’t too bad.

And to cap off an already pretty perfect day, frozen yogurt with my best friend.
