My husband is a brilliant gardener on our corner 1/3 acre. Here I take you with me on a gander around our yard right now, so you can see the little jewels growing and blooming out there. I am so grateful he has this interest and ability, for we all get to be the beneficiaries!
(Also note that beautiful lettuce, arugula, and spinach we have been enjoying out of the garden.)
I took some photos including the house so you have some context, and then many close ups so you can see all our special little joys. You see mostly different types of irises, our first two roses, and our first two peonies, columbine, lily of the valley, our orange azalea, allium, viburnum, and poppies.
It is important to remember, rejoice in, and emphasize all the beauty in the world!
