Taking Advantage of Spring

Hello blogging buddies! It has been quite awhile since my last post. Whew, for a while there, I was a bit lost at how to upload photos and stuff... hahaha. So much has happened in the last two months. April and May, school was at its peak with activities (Kindergarten graduation) practices, paperworks, tests (checking and grading of papers) and such!  School is winding down now. Today is our last day in school and I can't wait to go back to blogging (synonymous to relaxing!) Yay! I missed everyone! *hugs friends* Grateful to blogging buddies who continue to check on me and inspire me with their posts.

Another thing that got me busy is gardening! I took advantage of spring and worked real hard in my neglected garden. Gardening has been my saving grace from so much stress. *Sigh* We started with a little tilling and some planting and before we know it, the garden has expanded bigger (and better)  The simple roses my husband and I planted started blooming beautifully. Most of our plants cooperated and gave us unparalleled delight! Below are just a few photos of our flowers. I will try to share some more photos. Now, every chance we get, we spend in our yard. We  are looking at adding some garden furniture We love sitting at our old garden bench, but since some friends started coming to enjoy the yard, we are thinking of getting a simple gazebo. More on gardening in my next posts... for now, am just glad to be back! Miss visiting blogs! Blogging here I come! Yay!

Our roses are generous with their blooms

Lovely Lavanders

Delightful yellows!

Saw this lovely garden decor and fell in love with the words...

Flowers are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hope you enjoy a short tour in our garden! 'Til next time!

hi Tes, welcome back in blogging. I do not know if my comment earlier went through, somehow I got lost when I was about to send it. Anyway, so glad to see your words and pictures here again in the blogosphere, am glad you have not forgotten to upload and share your pictures :) yes, one who gardens plants happiness, i so agree, though am guilty right now of not taking care so much of our yard, but then it is because i planted the happiness 6 years ago, and now they are overflowing and wildly blooming without much care that I actually share and give away some happiness to neighbors, family and friends who ask :) wish i can share some to you as well. your yard is so beautiful.

Your garden looks lovely. I wish I had the motivation to work on mine. It's no one of my strong points. :)

I love rosebuds. Your plant is carrying quite a few. I'm sure the smell must be just as delightful. Thanks for sharing.

Now that spring or summer is here, alot of people are out gardening. It's so much fun to see the flowers blooming. Speaking of schools, I had two kids graduating this year, and yep, we were definitely busy!
