Hi, everyone! I am so sorry for being so inconsistent with posting lately. With two teachers in our house, the end of the year is such a busy time!
I haven't been up to much baking or crafting, just trying to wrap up progress reports, parent conferences, end of year party planning, and packing the classroom. Each year, I am so thankful to work as part of a team in my classroom- I know I couldn't do it alone!
I took this photo yesterday, before leaving for my last day at work (until summer school begins in a couple of weeks). I'm looking forward to this break so much! I plan to be parked here for lots of reading, meals with family and friends, and enjoying the beautiful summer!
We have all kinds of garden updates for you- both in our flower beds and in our vegetable garden. Things are blooming and sprouting and growing all over the place! The plants in our deck containers have grown so much, too. I love taking a minute every few days to check out what's in bloom around our yard. There's always something new! One of my most favorite blooms came this week- this stunning pink peony! I love those touches of dark pink, too. I hope we have more flowers on our peonies next year- if you know of any tips to encourage the plants to yield more flowers, please share!
I have a few projects that I'm hoping to do, and lots of gardening to keep up with. I'm trying to photograph our flowers as they bloom, which has been fun so far! As always, I'll also be sharing any fun adventures that come up along the way.
I'm also planning to share some of our favorite summer recipes, too. I love the fresh and colorful foods of summer, and love to play with different ideas.
Thanks for hanging in there, and sticking with me! What do you have planned this summer? Do you have favorite summer foods you're looking forward to, or are you awaiting the bloom time of flowers you really love? Let me know in the comments below!
