Blossoms, originally uploaded by chanchanchepon.
Although I really want to get going with my garden, I haven't quite gotten things under way yet. This all seems to take time. As I was looking at the big project outside my house, I did see these beautiful Azaleas that the former owners planted.

They planted some strange stuff. Crabapple, Hawthorne (I detest these trees and their 3 inch thorns), and a variety of spruce, maple, yew and juniper trees--I've even got an oak.

I had a bunch of people over Friday and Sunday night for a couple of end of semester celebrations among the h2o community. We started the weekend off with a Pants Party--folks wore outlandish pants, and brought old pants to donate to charity. IT was a great time--I might put a picture up later this week.

Sunday night, we had a little pot luck, and it was a delicious cornucopia of flavor sensations.

I don't really think of myself as a flower person, but I've been trying to take a little more time lately to appreciate things like these blossoms. Isn't it something that God has hard wired an appreciation for beauty into every one of us.

I hope you can take some time out today and enjoy the beautiful weather. Stop and look around you, slow down, and enjoy!

Beautiful photos. Small world that your folks have their cabin where my hubby goes (and sometimes me) to get away! It'd be cool to all be there at the same time!
Hey don't go crazy with the garden or you'll get overwhelmed. I've planted 4 short rows of onions, lettuce and peas so far. At least if we get a frost, these things won't get hurt. I've got tomato seedlings growing in the diningroom. The pants party sounded fun! You're such a good steward of what God has given you.
Blessings friend.
