How My Garden Grows






It is amazing the effect blooming spring shrubs can have on my outlook. My spirit lifts when I realize that it was my hands that planted these beautiful and fragrant flowers that I am so lucky to experience every time I step out my front door. I love that my children get to watch as each season, with care and water, the plants grow taller and more blossoms appear.


Today I picked some Gardenia blossoms and placed them in a bowl on my night stand. The aroma is so strong! Ethan said they looked beautiful. I can't help but smile...

Your gardenias are gorgeous! Promise me you'll plant a lilac bush at your next house :) I'm heading to the Botanic Gardens in my neighborhood this weekend to take in the smells of the season.
