The Gift of Flowers (Part One)

These are the groups of flowers that my mother-in-law got for these awesome flower pots on my front and back porch and some for planting in the flower bed.
The gift of flowers…what better gift is there than that of the beauty of flowers and the hard work of maintaining that beauty that comes with it that is so much more fulfilling than our day to day lives.

We’ve been living in our house for a year and I will tell you know I probably would have gone on living in it for many years to come without ever doing anything with the yard. However, I have a wonderful mother-in-law who has a green thumb and loves to use it. She has taken on my pitiful little yard as her personal project and has already worked wonders with the flower bed behind our house. She and Spencer have such big plans for it…whereas I am going through anxiety attacks hoping that I am watering them enough and keeping them alive.
Who would expect to find the sun in the middle of a flower?

Gerbera Daisies are some of my favorites. They were in the first bouquet of flowers that Spencer got me when we were dating.

I love how this bud looks. It's as if it is made of crumpled silk.
