Hello everyone!! I hope all the mothers out there had a fabulous Mother's Day! I know I did. The husband woke up extra early to sneak out and grab Starbucks and doughnuts. Yummm! He even did the laundry and cleaning for me. I'm such a lucky lady. What made it even more great was that husband surprised me with my favorite flowers and a card. So sweet!
I love orchids and they fit so beautifully in the studio. I love having a bit of organic life in here!
Once we were all on a sugar high from breakfast, we headed to the lawn and garden store for some plant shopping!! I love getting flowers to put outside for Mother's Day. It's so nice to bring color and charm to our house after a long and cold winter. Here's a look at what we did.
New plants in my hanging baskets.

New mulch... it's amazing the little things that make me happy. :)
The lilac bush is in FULL bloom, and it smells fabulous!! There's a fat Mr. Bumblebee that is having a blast in there.
Also this little bush is in bloom. I'm not sure what it is. Honestly, I don't have a green thumb.. it's brown. But, when I get a chance to enjoy anything that's alive, I do!
Here's a peek at the little front porch. It's like a secret hideaway when the trees are leafed (??). There are trees on all sides. I like to think we can spy on the neighborhood and remain undetected. But now, the secret is out.
Isn't the morning light perfect? Ahhh.. I love that time of day.
This is where I sit to enjoy it all, with coffee in hand. Ahh yes. After the yard work, I did enjoy a little brew in my rocking chair. I didn't move until the birds starting swarming to the trees. I know they're eyeing my chair ready to drop a big ole deuce on it. Sigh.
It was a perfect day of relaxation and enjoying the new life outside. How did you celebrate Mother's Day?
