The roses

The flowers are looking so pretty this year. I don’t remember last year being this pretty or having so many birds! I guess I am doing something right!
Here are the beautiful knockout roses in the front of our house. They are doing really good this year!

The flowers around it are also doing well.

The only thing I have done differently is water with some plant food. I do not have a green thumb, but it sure is starting to look like it!

Baby birds

A family of robins have decided to make our home their home too. I couldn’t be more excited! We have watched their little babies grow everyday. The mom lets me walk right next to her out in the yard. It is truly amazing. I hate for them to fly away.

Not only do we have robins on every corner of our house, we spotted two orioles knocking on our windows. We can count on seeing these cuties everyday through my daughters window. She loves when they knock!

Spring is quickly becoming my favorite season!

Spring………finally!

This past winter seems like the longest that I can remember. It didn’t help that things just started blooming a few days ago. I love all of the new life in our yard. We planted a forsythia and a wisteria just a few days ago. I can’t wait to watch them grow! This morning, I awoke to a robin building its nest just outside my bedroom patio door. The kids got to watch also.
Some life in our yard:

An Easy Spring Banner

I wish I could say the weather inspired me today, but it just isn’t so. Thanks to many other bloggers out there, I am getting in the Spring mood! I can’t wait.

I decided to make this easy spring banner:

I got out my scrapbook paper and found some cute Spring colors. Looking at all of those patterns makes me want to go find some pretty fabric. That might be something to add to my list.

I just folded the paper and cut out some shapes. Then, layer them over some brown ribbon. I used a little glue under the ribbon on each pennant. I think it turned out pretty cute.

Now, warm thoughts, warm thoughts, warm thoughts……
