Every time that we go outside it’s like a new yard. One of the first surprises, even before the majestic lilac bush/tree, was this large bundle of tulips just outside of our side door:
After the lilac tree, the next surprise was a few rose bushes. One of them is nice and normal, pink roses.
Two of them are really small and need to be propped up with some stakes. One of them is red, and one is white.
and one of them is a mutant. Seriously, one day I was like “Oh, there are a couple of roses on that bush” and the next I was like “Oh dear God the roses are making a move on the house.” This bush got overloaded so quickly that I had to prune like crazy. There were about two plastic totes full of small white roses that died in the flood the next day.
The other day, we drove home and saw these beautiful irises. At least I think that’s what they are anyway. I don’t actually know that much about flowers being terrified of bees and all…
And just to show you guys why I married him, this is a shot of one of my Christmas presents from Matt:
There’ll actually be a cupcake post coming up in the next day or so as well. I know some of you want to get your hands on my Chai Spice Cupcakes 😉
