Home Tour Part 1: Our Yard

Even though I don't speak of it much, I am in love with our yard. 
The past year and a half has been full of projects, renovation, flowers, and creativity.  
I wanted to share a little piece of my hobby with you this morning (yes, it is still morning.  This is what happens when you wake up at 9:30.)

First of all, every morning I get up and water my flowers.  Ever since my wonderful mom asked me to water her flowers one day, I have had a love for these living beauties and a need to spend 30 minutes of my morning in the sunshine with them.  It's a sort of relaxation therapy for me.

For those of you who think that gardening is too great a feat to tackle... it's really not that bad.
The planting takes an afternoon at most.
The weeding I do mayyyybe once a week (if my flowers are lucky),
and the watering takes 30 minutes daily - but I get a great tan out of it. AND, I love to put my iPod in my iHome and listen to some Zac Brown Band radio.  It's a great summer hobby.

Now for the million and a half pictures I took this morning...
