Do you love what you see outside your home?
I hope so.
My blog friend Renee posted a photo of some dogwood blossoms a while back... gorgeous! Right away I knew wanted to put some on canvas.
When our house was being built, the builder asked if we wanted to keep the scraggly tree beside the deck. He said, "It kinda got banged up. Don't know if it'll last more'n a year or so." We kept it. And we were delighted the next spring (and every spring since) when we discovered it was a dogwood.
If you look closely you'll see the white blossoms hanging down behind my herbs... my herbs that I'm having fun growing, but am just learning how/what to cook with them...
Here are a few other favorite springtime things I love to see (and smell) around my house...
Purple Irises... Yellow Irises... Honey Suckle Vines... My Vegetable Garden... Marigolds...
pitiful one-eyed trusty brave owl guards the garden.
