There are three things I especially love about my house… the first is my hammock. When I moved into my house at the end of July it used to sit in my living room. After getting furniture though, I moved it downstairs where it lived with my roommates all winter. About a month ago I decided that it should go outside. Now that the weather is nicer I’ve been trying to lay in it. Sometimes after work I’ll forget-I’m usually so busy cooking and cleaning, gardening, and just general house-stuff. The other afternoon after work, though, I decided to enjoy a nice cold ginger perry and lay in the hammock. I left my phone inside and just enjoyed.
The second thing I love is my yard. So, today with a little free time I planted and trimmed. I couldn’t get a good shot of it in the light, but I planted two bleeding hearts. Before that I had to trim back a stupid thorny bush that I don’t like. Eventually I hope to get rid of it, but it looks decent enough where it is, so for now I’ll just keep it trimmed enough so that it is out of my way. I also weeded back a wine that chokes out a rose-bush. Last year my mom noticed that a baby rose bush was buried beneath a thick vine, so earlier in the spring I unearthed it and trained it along my fence. Today I weeded and trained it a little more. There are so many little buds on it!
I also noticed two flowers blooming! The peony opened, and it’s gorgeous!
Also the rose bush on the arbor in my front yard is starting to bloom. It’s funny because I took pictures just yesterday, and none were blooming at all. It’s funny how fast things can just open up!
Lastly, I really love the view in my kitchen. I have a huuuuuge widow in there that gets perfect light. The light is really what sold me when we looked at this property. Everything is always to beautiful in the kitchen when I take pictures. Of course when I have hand-picked flowers from my amazing mom, it’s not too hard.
Aren’t they gorgeous? Her garden is phenomenal. The amount of work that goes into it is insane, and I am always so pleased she she gives me some of the beauty that comes from it.
