The time I spent with my family was great. We did a whole lot and a little bit of nothing. The weather was not the best, but we sneaked in some golf, park time, and walks in the city.
In the last few weeks Spring came and it has been fun to see what is popping up in the garden. Since we did not move until June, there have been some surprises.
Lots of pretty blooming trees.
Wildflowers and daises to pick.
The lawn is in good shape.
When the petals started falling it looked like snow.
Since I have a black thumb, my Mom (and Dad) was kind of enough to do some gardening that hopefully I can keep alive for more than a week.
These babies will fill in soon and make this bed fun to look at all summer.
Pretty pots, which we found at Ikea for $40.
Fun succulents for the table.
Lots of herbs to play with in the kitchen.
There is nothing like not having to buy flowers at the market and clipping them from your backyard instead. I have been bringing so many in and loving it.
And if you are looking for an easy, fruity dessert to serve this weekend, try this one from Martha Stewart. Raspberry & Peach Galette. The pastry is delicious and you just wrap up the fruit with it. Wish I could take credit, but Mom strikes again.
This is pretty much how I am spending the sunny days so far. He can't get enough of the yard. Nice comb over little man.
