"Seeing" things a little differently

Winter to spring = refreshing transition

I’m not sure what the weather has been like for all of you, but here in my neck of the woods which is Mobile, Alabama in the Southern Gulf coast region of the United States.  We are in full springtime mode and the weather has been perfect! Highs in the mid 70′s and lows in the low 60′s…wow!

There is something very fulfilling about getting down in the dirt, planting new flowers and beautifying my yard during this time of year. It is a ritual that I love to do.  I purchase hundreds of petunias, begonias, impatience and zinnias at a local school that sells them very cheap.  This year is just a bit different, I am beautifying Jack’s yard. (Jack is my significant other) He bought a house on the water nearly a year ago that I just adore.  It is a lovely place and I wanted to put some of my personality in the yard with a bunch of flowers.  (Continue reading...)

    I love the wildflowers! So many mysterious colors and designs and when you try to transplant them…they seem to die. Glad you are enjoying some nice weather…I’m getting my flip flops out!

    I’m just a little bit north of you here in Arkansas. We’re finally getting some warmer weather, though the flowers had begun to bloom weeks ago. I visited my parents yesterday, who live in the country, and saw several beautiful flowers here and there. The ones that caught my eye were some white iris that appeared to be growing wild in several areas along my drive through the country.
