Spring – What I Think of {Part 7}

Floral, button-up shirts. Pretty, and pretty comfortable. πŸ™‚ Not to mention that they practically scream, “spring”! Oh, and did I mention that all of them were thrifted? It’s the way to do it, I think.
Bokeh. That is all.
Peacock feathers. Not just because they’re peacock feathers. ‘Cause that’s a pretty awesome reason in and of itself. But because they display my favorite color– green– in such a lovely way. Ah….

Spring – What I Think of {Part 6}


Flower petals.

This one was off our black raspberry bush. Such a perfect picture of purity and innocence. If only all things in this world were pure and innocent… Looking forward to heaven, where that will be the case. Purity, because God is the essence of purity.


Spring – What I Think of {Part 3}

IMG_3294Vegetable garden.

I am so thankful for the hard work my siblings and mom have put into our garden– God willing, we will have anΒ abundance of fresh produce in the next few months. πŸ™‚ We’ve already had our first harvest of our micro greens (lettuce), some spinach, and mulberries. Hopefully we’ll have plenty of tomatoes and onions, because those are favorites around here.

Today, I got in the garden and put some stuff down to help the plants be more healthy. I’m not exactly an expert on such things, so hopefully I did it correctly and there will be no adverse effects. πŸ˜‰

Yard Work

…Woah! It’s been *so* long since I blogged! Sorry ’bout that! I’ve just been extremely busy. Life has been full— over-flowing, really. But, hey, I’m not complaining! Busy is better than bored. πŸ˜‰ This is the first of (hopefully) a series of posts—- my way of trying to make-up for being such a terrible blogger. πŸ˜‰ I hope you enjoy!

Lately we’ve been doing a lot of yard work. Here, Phoebe works on re-doing one of the flower beds, in which we hope to plant a mini garden.
After we weeded it, but before the mulching and planting. Sadly, I never took a real “after” photo. πŸ˜›
Two hard workers— and yes, I did help them. But I was taking photos during my break. πŸ˜‰
We also re-did the front flower beds by weeding them (it was over-grown with jasmine), mulching them and then planting surprise lilies. Aren’t they lovely?! πŸ™‚ Needless to say, we were quite proud of our hard efforts!Β
