My husband has really gotten interested in photography, and he recently got a new camera. Last night he and I both ran around the yard taking photographs of what we saw. I love the time of day when daylight turns to evening, so it was truly a lot of fun.
Here's a peek into our back picture window. I love the way the lamps' light bounces off the glass:
I was happy to take this photo of the magnolia tree that we planted several years ago. It's really grown!
I stopped and noticed that a plant that had recently looked half dead was now blooming:
Out front I was glad to see our garden window looking better. My husband has been refurbishing the trim along the bottom of it. It turned out to be quite a job. A two hour project turned into a two day one!
The plants on the porch are potted in some funky pots, that's for sure. I'm not big on everything matching, although I do admire how that looks. Some of the pots were painted and decorated by our daughter, so they are precious to me. We planted the marigolds before Easter:
The front planters are blooming a bit. These planters used to be full of huge, overgrown junipers. We're so happy we redid them several years ago. Our next big outside job is to have the house repainted, as these photos will show:
I took the next one as I love seeing lit windows at twilight
A bit later we took one more photo. The clouds here rarely look this interesting, so we couldn't resist:
Thanks so much for coming by today!
