Blonde moment

And the silver spoon.

New discoveries…

So, last night, Josh and I went out to eat. And on the way out of our driveway, I noted a splash of color along the side of the house, a nice magenta color. When we returned, I was pleased to find a peony bush to the side of the house (and also one in the back)! We also have some yellow irises by our mail box.

There are some fun and not so fun things about foreclosures. Granted, Josh and I really haven’t had horror stories about our house that some people have; we’ve just had to do normal maintenance like things. But, we’ve also discovered fun things, too, like the flowers.

I can’t wait until I can get myself up off the ground unassisted so I can putter and tend to my flowers.

As an aside, even though our yard is bunny haven, they have stayed away from the irises.

    We just to my parents to the Munsinger Clemens gardens and all of their peonies are blooming too! I think I'd like to plant a few in our yard, they will remind me of home. (my parent's place)

    You should! They're pretty low maintenance. Plant them, and then mow them down every spring. And they give you a pretty flower!
