happy earth day!

In honor of Earth Day, I wanted to share some photos of how our garden and front yard are coming along this Spring!

My hubby has devoted so much time on the front yard this year. In the fall he seeded it all by himself. This is a difficult task to begin with, and our yard is seriously almost like a football field! So, he feels very proud of the results and so am I!

Here was our front yard last Fall. It had tons and tons of patchy and dried out spots. Ronnie was determined not to go through another Spring and Summer with them.

So, he seeded it in the Fall and take a look at it today!

Here are the gerber daises we re-planted this year. I love my daisies! We also hung up some baskets with Geraniums (baskets thanks to Martha Stewart). Look at the flowers I potted earlier this month pretty! And look at how our Azaleas have bloomed. (Azaleas are the ones that are green all year and look like bushes, but bloom in the Spring). It is amazing how they attract the bees! I got a shot of those, too!

Finally, if you have not heard about it yet, Disneynature has come out with a new motion picture simply called 'EARTH'. It looks so breath taking! Go out to watch this week. Disney promises to plant a tree in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, (considered one of the most endangered rain forests in the world) for everyone who sees the motion picture between April 22-28. Narrated by James Earl Jones, the film "tells the remarkable story of three animal families and their amazing journeys across the planet we call home." Here is the remarkable movie trailor.

Happy Earth Day! Did you do anything special to honor Mother Earth?



Gorgeous!!! minus the bees lol. My hubby is obsessed with the yard too, he gets so upset when it dries out. I want to see that movie too.


Your flowers are so pretty!
