a beautiful magnolia tree

Watching the springtime bloom brings me so much joy. Spring is, by far, my favorite season.  My love for flowers started five years ago, in my new home, with my new husband.  I was in a place I could call my own and cultivate for my own enjoyment and beauty.  That first year, I began planting like crazy.  I have had many bumps in the road — and moles-hills in our lawn — but overall, I love the dirt and I love it in my fingernails.

I have a wonderful flower garden now, and enjoy weeding and watching, especially with a sweet baby on my back and a sweet boy running around me.  Last year was our first real vegetable garden, so this year, I hope we harvest, and weed, a bit more.  We also have many perennials and bulbs, so I always have a new flower to cut and put on my kitchen table every week.

This spring has been especially wonderful, for two reasons: my little boy loves watching things grow alongside me and I have my new camera to help me capture these beautiful growing moments. This tree — which is technically in my wonderful neighbors’ yard — is my absolute favorite.  I wish it bloomed year-round, but maybe its two weeks of beauty a year is why I love and cherish it so much.

  1. Oh, I LOVE nature photographs, and yours are beautiful. I’m just starting to figure out how mine works (Hubby gave it to me for Christmas and keeps telling me to read the instructions!). There is something so satisfying in pictures of creation!
