Beckoning Spring

We spent all day Thursday of our spring break outside cutting back grasses, raking flower beds and tidying the yard. I haven't spent that many hours outside since August (Chris claims that I've never spent that much time outside at this house...shhhh...he might be right). Honestly, if you saw how many flower/grass beds we have, you'd understand why we were outside for 7+ hours).


Welcome Spring.
Can you tell I love using the macro setting on my camera?
Happy Friday.

XOXO

Fun family day - even if it is work! I love staycations! Love that first sign of spring! Jorja and Jailyn are loving seeing all the buds and explaining the blooming process to whoever will listen! :) Happy Friday girly!

Spring is the time we want to get moving again, isn't it? Enjoy the pretty weather (if you're having it) - Spring also means the weather changes

Oh...We have to continue our yard work this weekend. I hope to put my window boxes out, too. I do enjoy being outside planting, but I don't enjoy all the clean up you have to do before!

What great crafting ideas...love the paint sample garland...might have to try that one.

Have a great Friday...

I really need to get out to my yard too!! We have had a lot of rain, so the weeds have really sprouted. Hope you all are having fun!!

That yard clean up is a year round thing here, but it sure feels good when you're done. And it doesn't look like the girls minded much.

LOVE the macro photos.

I'm not brave enough to peek at what is waiting for me out there. Is grass in the flower beds bad? ;)

Blessings, Debbie

That tree filled with eggs is adorable :-)

So glad that spring is around the corner.
Chris can come over anytime and clean our flower beds:))

Yes, that is the grass that I despise. It scratches and flies all over the yard! My husband loves this stuff and I am the one who ends up cleaning it. Sidewalk chalk is just ageless. We draw basketball courts, pictures, bases for ball and more. Thanks for the smiles...Renee

Looks like the whole family had a good time working outside. It seems like spring has finally come to you.(-:
