So its that time of year again. The time we spend more time in the yard making the outside of our homes as beautiful as the inside. I personally love being in the yard, working and tending to the earth. Allowing nature to flourish, basking in the beauty that is created with a little sweat and determination. My favorite part is walking around the plant stores and waiting for a plant to jump out at you. Then you take it home and find the perfect little spot to make its new home.
Seems every year I discover a new project. This year is my dreaded hill. One word Blah. I really wanted to put in a retaining wall, maybe pushing the hill back a few feet, but alas thats not in the cards. I just want to break up the grassy hill, I think some depth and color will go a long way.
These lillies decided to pop open and say hello today as well. I have had these lillies in the garden for 3 years now. They are simply beautiful and make me smile. I think they scream spring!
I been working so hard to create an oasis in my yard. A place I can go to relax and cast out the woes of my day. A place where I can sit under the mulberry tree and just smell and listen to nature as she works all around me. A place to lose yourself in. I want to be able to sit back there and forget for just a minute about the hustle and bustle of the city, and absorb every little living thing. For a minute to just pretend I'm somewhere out in the country deep in a beautiful secluded secret garden. A place to just exist.
