Spring - Sprung

Ezekiellawn
Spring is in the air!

This past weekend we had gorgeous weather. So gorgeous in fact, I spent most of the day outside working in the yard. Which according to my boys and hubby is a RARE event! I spent the afternoon cleaning out flower beds. It felt so good being out in the sun and dirt.

This weekend was also the passing over of the grass cutting. Ezekiel will be 13 in June and Fonzy said he is old enough to cut the grass. Lucky for him, huh? He actually did a pretty good job.

All smiles now - I'm sure when it's 90 degrees outside he won't be smiling :)

spring
Some of the trees in the area are already full of leaves. Ours are just starting to show their leaves. I'm sure by next weekend, it will be full.

All things are sparkly and new!

Fonzy planted some random fruit seeds in a pot last year and they are growing! We are not sure what it is, but it's pretty, so we decided to let it grow.

flowers
The gladiolus Fonzy planted last year are coming up! I'm so excited! They are my favorite flower and I can't wait to see them bloom.

Ezekiel's handy work.

He was so proud of how the grass looked. I'm hoping to get a few big pots of flowers in the front, some sort of hanging plant in the entrance way and a porch swing! Yes, I said porch swing! I don't have a porch, but have an area in the front there for a swing. I'm hoping to get one soon, so I can sit on my swing in the mornig sipping my coffee or enjoying the evening out there. Especially on beautiful days like we had this past weekend.

Looks beautiful. I love your home. Looks like a good family project. I love to see a family work together:)

There must be something in the air, working on our home is very much on our minds as well. A porch swing will be lovely, you are lucky to have the weather to make the most of it.

A good skill to learn. My boys love (and hate) cutting the grass.
