I have spent the majority of the day outside tilling the land for our garden. Yes, my arms, legs and back are sore but I know that it was work that will have a nice payoff for our family. šŸ™‚

From childhood, I have had a love/hate relationship with the outdoors. I love the beach but not necessarily the woods, at least not after the age of 12. I share all of this because I think I have been outside more in the past few weeks than I have been during the last 7 years of marriage. šŸ˜‰

I finally was able to snap some pics the other day, so enjoy!

There are lots of flowers but right now, the azaleas are the only bloomers.

This is one of my favorite things in the house. There are lots of favorites, but this stone fireplace is just naturally beautiful.

I leave you with another item that is naturally beautiful.
