Mmmm....yummy raspberries, and so pretty too!
5) I love flowers and have derived great joy in being able to fill our house with flowers from our yard. We moved in while everything was hibernating, so we had no idea what was planted. This spring and summer have been a time of discovery.
There are roses, which remind me of my Nana, who loved to garden. When she lived with us on Vancouver Island we had roses planted all over the yard. It was so beautiful and fragrant!
I had no idea that a peony bush was hidden in the corner of the yard! It has a really intense scent. Only two blooms this year, but now we know it is there, we can take care of it!
This little bush was the scrubbiest, ugliest dead looking thing until a few weeks ago. We woke up one day and it was covered in little white flowers. Hmm, maybe we have to think twice about it now.....
This is the tree right in between our driveway and front walk. I have no idea what it is, but I love the leaves and flowers, Shon hates it and wants to cut it down. The negotiations continue....
Last but not least is the numbers on our house. Not because I like the style of those lovely chunky 80's wood things, but because of what they represent, a place that we have dreamed about and saved for what felt like an eternity for....a home of our own. (yeah I know it is sappy ~ what did you expect? I may be a Wednesday, but every once in a while a Pollyanna-ism slips through...must be the company I keep!)
