to each his own.

being new home owners there are always "projects" to be done. the past few weekends as the weather has been getting nicer those projects have been outdoors. ryan usually digging, planting, pulling, weeding, mowing or sweeping and me... well, i photograph it all. it's the part i enjoy. and this last weekend as i felt i should get dirty and dig a little he consistently asked me " you want me to do that?" so i'm guessing i either looked way out of my element or i wasn't doing it "right".

i'll stick to the photographs or maybe i'll sleep in next time. :)








i enjoy my role. our herbs are begining to sprout this week. we're still debating on the garden. we were all go this weekend and then stopped to figure out how to get rid of the grass that is where we want the garden. when we couldn't come up with a "simple solution" we opted out of the garden and bought flowers for the front yard. now i think we have a solution so we might work at it next weekend. we'll see what happens.

Beautiful flowers! Wow, I really wish I had flowers in my own backyard, I have to settle for gardens, public plots, and other peoples front yards for my photographs :)

Is the pink one a gerbera? It is lovely. But since violet is my favorite color, i'm partial to the violet bloom! Thanks for sharing your photos :)
