Morning Garden

One morning last week, I found myself outside planting green bean seeds before anyone else was awake and the beauty of the garden in the morning made me rush back in for my camera!

Little patches of hope were everywhere -

hope of vegetables to come
hope of flowers to clip and enjoy
hope of new life

hope

Enjoy a stroll through my garden this morning ...

i have sooooo enjoyed gardening this year and want to dig in the dirt somemore. I can't wait to see the fruits of my labor. My favorite thing to watch is of course the seeds that we planted because they are more of a surprise then the already blooming plants.

Love your lovely garden!

Gardening is sooo theraputic...

I love eating fresh grown veggies from our garden- nothing beats a fresh off the vine tomatoe.

And as a florist- I love clipping blossoms!

Loved your Mother's Day blog idea. My sweet sister just adopted 2 little boys from Ethiopia too. What a way to celebrate Mother's Day!!!

Love it!! I've gotten into my yard a little more this year and actually have plans for a raised bed garden in a bed. An old iron one to be exact!!

Oh, how I miss the flowers and green of the south! Funny that I grew up in the south and now live in CO and you are from CO and now live in the beautiful south! Thanks for the info on your friend Becky. Hopefully, we can get in touch with her to get some pics of my little ones. I also have 2 close friends in the process of adopting from Ethiopia and would love to help them, too!

Happy Gardening!
