Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

Of Seedlings; And Photo Shoots :)

I love Spring. Really, it's true. I feel like overnight, God took his paintbrush and created a wonderland for us to live and flourish in. I love flowers, and green (no, not gray) grass, and sparkling blue swimming pools. :) (Although, I ought to mention, ours is blue, but not quite sparkling. It is rather cloudy at the moment. Mom is at her wits end, she can't get it un-cloudy. Any suggestions?)



As of Wednesday, there has been dirt constantly under my fingernails and in the creases (ugh) of my hands, thanks to our beautiful flower boxes (I must say, they do look divine). AND, my seedlings have FINALLY come up. I am so excited. Like, you have no idea how happy I am. You all should see me. I have been an OCD freak mother hen for the past two weeks waiting for my *babies* to come up. Haha. First came the Zinnias (giant, dwarf, large violet, white purity, state fair mix) next came the Sunflowers, then my Moss Roses decided to show themselves, and then the California Poppy's got jealous, and decided that they would come up so everybody could see them too. (You can't let the Zinnias have all the fun). AND FINALLY, after I was about to have a conniption fit, quite tardily, the Lupines popped there heads up out of the soil.





Don't laugh at me, I PRE-WARNED you. I am in love with the beauty of God's creation. :) I *love* to make things beautiful.

And, finally, my daddy had me get the hawk (Majesty) out yesterday to get some pictures of her for friends. As we were innocently taking pictures, Fruity (my little brothers Jersey Calf) came up and started to (very naughtily ;P) disturb the peace. I give you evidence:



Have A Wonderfully Beautiful day.

What a green thumb you appear to have, Laura Lee! Such a lovely assortment of flowers you've got going. The pink roses are my definite favorite!
Blessings,
Lisa

Aw thank you, Lisa! They have been more on the brown side of things rather than green lately ;) Haha. Lol, the 'roses' are actually pink Azaleas. But, from afar (and in the picture) they really do look like roses. :)

Hi Laura!
Thanks for following - and for the kind comment!
You have a hawk?! Wow - what a beautiful bird! I don't believe I've ever heard of anyone with a hawk before - what a special pet! :)
Your photography is lovely!
