52 Weeks of Happiness: Week 4

June 14, 2011

Happiness is sunshine!! Although we haven’t had many sunny days, the few we’ve had have been wonderful!!! Enough sun that I have not lost hope that summer is around the corner and that everything in the garden is starting to bloom!!

Play dates on the patio

Korean Lilac

Baby Iris


Baby Spinach


herbs, herbs, everywhere

Geraniums with lots of buds!!



  1. Beautiful blooms and baby!

  2. Great shots! 🙂

  3. Cutie baby! Love all the blooms and plants! Got tomatos and strawberries growing myself! WOO HOO!

  4. Such a fun play basket and a cutie pie!!!!
    I love your herb garden in the planter. I think I need to have one of these! I dont have much sun on my deck…or anywhere really. Do you think it will work?

    • I put my herbs in planters (those are 2 of 4) because I was too lazy to walk all the way down to my garden to cut a few pieces for cooking. Now they are just outside my kitchen window so I have no excuse :0)

      There are a few herbs that grow well in the shade; lemon balm, any type of mint, chives, parsley, tarragon and thyme would all work. The good thing about planters is you can move them into some sun if they are looking a little sad! Also, I divide my planters by perennials and annuals so they are easier to clean up in the winter! Hope this helps… post pics if you end up doing it!!

  5. I love lilacs!

    And adorable babies, of course.


  6. Everything looks so beautiful and ready for warm weather.

  7. These photos are amazing! I love your little guy’s hat too!
