hello spring

Raindrops on daffodils.

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. ~Hal Borland

Here I am NINE months later still trying to keep this little blog alive. I've been busy busy! Moving to the country has proven to be a lot more challenging than I expected. Between the huge deer hitting my car on Christmas eve morning and our water well caving in on our pump on Valentine's Day it's been trying to say the least. I'm not quitting though. We will get through it all.
In other news, I'm going to be FORTY years old in less than two weeks!
Bring it on.

wild summer

What a wild summer it has been so far! I've moved to a new home in the country. Raised monarch butterflies and released them. Watched fawns playing from my office window. Seen the most
lightning bugs I've ever seen at once in my front yard.
I'm loving this living in the country thing. Hope everyone is having a fun summer!

moving to the country

In two weeks we will finally be moving! Our new home is nestled in the Boston Mountains of Winslow, Arkansas. It's a log cabin that was built by my father-in-law. I have to admit I'm a little nervous about the change, but I'm sure with time I'll adjust to country life. As soon as I get settled in and get internet service I will share some photos of our new adventure!

gardening bug

sleepy fern
spicebush - pawpaw tree
tall phlox
With the move to the country this summer coming up and my recent butterfly gardening class, I've become obsessed with learning everything I can about gardening. I already have my butterfly garden design planned out for next spring. I can't seem to stay away from the botantical gardens and gardening stores these days either. I have the bug! Let's just hope I'll develop a healthy green thumb too. I took these at Compton Gardens today.

the dogwoods

The blossoming dogwood trees are one of my favorite parts of spring. So beautiful!
Happy Spring, folks!

slowly coming back

winter sunset

So...here it is almost three months since my last post. I had to take a break. I'm slowly starting to
feel like taking photos again. I needed a rest from photography, blogging, and social media. Sometimes you just need to take a break and start fresh. That works for me. I'm excited about the new year and have lots of changes coming my way!

botanical beauty

a living wall

camelot cream foxglove



The last photos from summer. I took these at our local botanical garden. I wanted to see the
new living wall (top photo) and it was amazing!
The flower that really caught my eye was that gorgeous camelot cream foxglove. I mean wow...
I must plant some of my own someday. I hear they attract fairies! ;)
