We went to NYC for the National Stationery Show and when we came home, we found our irises in full bloom. I love that our yard welcomes us home in such a pretty way.

pink spring

Last year, at this time, we were still living in an apartment with a weird, shared yarders of our very own.. Spring was gorgeous, but we didn’t really enjoy it. What a difference 365 days can make! This year we’ve got our own yard with trees and flowers and beautiful things. I just can’t get […]

I haven’t even had a minute to take the good camera out into the yard to photograph our pretty flowers! I’ve been snapping away with my camera, though. It’s such a beautiful time of […]

a splash of yellow

Eric’s parents visited last night, and his mom brought these gorgeous daffodils. I’d been eyeing them at the store, so it was a sweet and happy surprise to have some of our own. They make our kitchen feel even brighter. It’s really starting to feel like spring around here!

sunny days

Both days, the temperature was in the mid-70s (I’m pretty sure that’s what people call perfect) so we spent some time on their parents’ deck, which afforded us a beautiful view of the garden (and Peter Rabbit). The mornings have been so cool lately, that […]

blooming in our yard

I’ve been really tired lately. Really, really tired. When I get home from work, all I want to do is sleep. But I have other things to do, like eat dinner, work on custom projects, and (most¬†importantly) spend time in our yard. We’re totally in love with these nettles. They’re sorta crazy awesome, don’t you […]
