Spring Blooms

l was welcomed home on Friday by my little tree in the front yard plump full of beautiful pink blooms. I was so excited to see something alive and not dead in the yard for once that I went running outside to take some pictures of the blooms. I honestly don't remember this tree blooming like this - in fact I don't recall it at all blooming last year. After snapping some pictures I shared them with my hubby only to see a puzzled look on his face - he then said "what's the big deal it blooms like that every year." Seriously - where have I been, I honestly don't recall them. I guess I've really missed home and my eyes are wide open.

We are also excited to have a landscaper come and work with us on our landscaping plans for the front yard. We started the process last year but quickly learned how costly landscaping can be - who knew. We then attempted the DIY route and let's just say our plants died - again. I think we need to turn it over to the professionals now and cross our fingers that we can make the plans affordable this time. We are meeting with a new landscaper based on a referral, I know that my book club buddy won't steer me in the wrong direction so needless to say we are uber-excited to get going on our plans.

Aren't these blooms just beautiful? I love that I can look out of the living room window and see these if only for a bit longer. Why is it that they can't stay a little longer...

Ohhh - Ahhh! I love this time of year. **sigh** If for no other reason than all the beautiful blossoms. Our tree looks awesome right now too - Dave insists that this year they are all looking better than ever. Maybe that is why you noticed it THIS year!!
Hugs and MISS you - I feel like I haven't seen you in forever. I know, I know, you have been jet setting all over the place :D
