The Stuff of Life {And Spring!}



{I imagine my mom is the only person reading this blog these days. Hi Mom!}

Spring is here. I have neglected my writing. And my gardens.

We moved. We renovated the house. We moved back in. We had a baby! {Samuel Thomas James born on March 1st - I am in love.}

So we are back. The gardens, the light in Sugar Hollow, the arrival of spring and all of its sounds are being particularly relished these days. There is nothing like being away from home for a few months to completely appreciate it upon your return. I hardly leave these days.

Also:

Between the pregnancy and sleep deprivation - I forgot about several plantings from last spring. It is nice to be able to surprise yourself.

Turns out, a pile of lumber can be dumped on top of your peonies for an entire winter and upon removal on a Saturday, new peony shoots will appear through the soil the following Tuesday!

I have the same flowers in my yard that are in the first image of your post. What is the name of the white star-shaped flower?

Thanks,

John

Your mom has company, you still pop up on my google reader, though that service is due to end in July.

Congratulations on the birth of your son, I know life is keeping you busy.
