Spring Has Sprung!!

Spring has DEFINITELY sprung around here! Here are a few of my favorite things so far...

*MY JAPANESE MAPLE... that is just so delightful to look at!

*I love getting FERNS! The only reason I get them is for possibility that a bird might decide to nest in one and we'll get to see the whole nest to baby process in front of our eyes (like in times past)! Plus, they add a touch of green... I put two on the back porch and one in the front. We brought them in Monday night b/c of the freeze that was due that morning after. When I went to put the ferns back outside I saw what looked like a little nest! It was! I thought "oh no... the bird won't come back... and which side of the porch was the fern on, etc..." Anyway, today... Rylan tells me that he saw a bird in the fern. So, since I got a new camera and have been feeling like blogging again... I went outside to take a pic and TA-DA... here is what we saw! What a pleasant surprise! Now if I can just convince my kids not to mess with it!

*Flowers are also my favorite things of Spring. Everything is so green and colorful and just comes to life! Here are my roses getting ready to bust!

My Petunias....

*My all-time favorite thing... just being outdoors with my kiddos!! :)

Laying in the hammock and playing with the dogs is a favorite past-time....

Happy Spring!! :)
