Flowers Make Me SO Happy!

I can't believe I am such a flower freak!

I have been the biggest crab lately. Stress and a toothache do not mix well. One day a couple weeks ago I saw a landscaping truck carrying the most BEAUTIFUL Hydrangea plants. Instant smiles were beaming across my face. Is it possible for a potted plant to cause such happiness! It was then that I remembered how much I LOVE having flowers in the yard.

I spent a day renewing my front yard and my withered spirit. It only took $80, 2 Large potted Hydrangeas, 1 potted delphinium, 1 new rose bush, 8 pink geraniums, and 2 flats of purple petunias.

Kirt even gave me a Lowe's card so I could buy more! I moved the porch swing to the front yard so I could sit under the tree and see my flowers. We finally put the trampoline in the side yard...now I have what I call "Swing Therapy".
And it's wonderful! I love to sit in my swing and watch Amanda jump on the trampoline and take in the beautiful flowers. The weather has been so nice...aside from a few windy days.
Its definately my favorite time of year!

I didn't know you could grow hydrangeas in Arizona! I've missed those flowers - they are proliferate in Georgia. At some point we are going to have to come visit and see this little oasis you have created!

The hydrangeas are enough to make a girl drool for sure! They are absolutely gorgeous sis! Yet one more thing for me to be jealous about! Are you going to try for three now? lol
