Today is overcast and a bit on the cool side.
Its a perfect morning to put on a sweatshirt, grab a cup of coffee and go for a walk in the woods of our happy little acre.
Wanna come with me?
Right out the front door...
You can't tell in this photo, but they are an amazing orangey pink (salmon color)....
Last weekend while The Mister was building the swing, The Girl and her friend built a "girls-only fort" in the yard, using some wood and some tree branches.
Please take note that their "vase" is a good glass from my kitchen.
I had to bite my tongue from protesting...after all, it is beautiful on the mantle of their little house.
Let's move on...
Can I tell you what surprises me every year?
The irises: I did not plant them. I cannot make them grow . As a matter of fact, the bleakness of winter and the harsh reality of cold completely erases them from my memory.
At first that may sound sad, but its not.
Every year I give thanks, because it feels like a gift I forgot to ask for.
A beautifully wrapped...
...perfectly made gift.
I am amazed by it all.
Amazed....that in just the span of 20 days my yard can look like this:
What amazes you today?
