while we were out…
I took a little hiatus for the past two weeks for Mike and I’s wedding and honeymoon (more on that later on). By hiatus, I mean a break from photography, a break from cleaning, cooking, yard work, answering calls…well you get it…basically I just used the wedding as an excuse to not be a very productive person. With all of my laziness when it comes to real life tasks lately, I was dreading coming back home to the real world. The mail, laundry, dishes, emails, and everything else I’d shunned was waiting for me just as I feared. But something else had changed while I was away too. When we pulled up in our driveway Sunday I actually gasped out loud. What a difference two weeks can make! My garden had gone from a jungle of green, stumpy plants to something like a botanical garden (maybe I’m being big headed here, but when you compare it to how it was before I’d say that’s accurate enough :) ). I like to think that this is a sign, that when Mike and I’s life started together this new life took place in our home as well, and that it’s a beautiful, bountiful life with so much potential. See what I mean?
These lacy caps never let me down, they always survive no matter how hard I try to kill them
These are left from the beautiful bridal shower my mother-in-law threw me in March
The dollar store bulbs are pulling their weight too!
My mom saved this little guy from the “distressed” plants section, and it has a real will to survive
10 points to whoever can tell me what this 8 foot tall plant with these gorgeous flowers is. Last year it was barely a foot high and now it’s ridiculous and beautiful!
This is the newest hydrangea addition, the snowball. I think it was originally a niko blue but with our soil content shifted into this pretty purple.
I have a tomato! (almost!)
Check out the loot. Any ideas on a delicious meal containing a carrot, a sweet pepper and one spring onion? I think at this point Mike’s like “great…this is what I married? I’m going to starve”
I love being able to walk outside and cut fresh flowers. Our house looks like a greenhouse right now thanks to this growth spurt and all the beautiful vases we got for the wedding (this one is a favorite, thanks Courtney!)
More growth to come soon! Thanks for sticking with me, hopefully this is a sign of good things to come :)
