Wishing you courage

The purple butterfly bush has bloomed!

Here's a sneak peak of part of the garden ;)  I can't show off photos of the whole thing BECAUSE it is not finished and needs weeding BECAUSE I can't manage to get anything done now that I learned how to knit and crochet.

The tiny flowers are so pretty up close

The white butterfly bush should flower in a few days

I saw the purple flowers this morning and thought "there is such thing as redemption".  I don't know what that means but I do feel terrible about the whole foreclosure thing, even though it has worked out pretty well for me so far.  I don't really expect anything good to happen and I don't feel like I deserve good things to happen.  So it was lovely to see the bushes thriving after being uprooted.

Then the patio furniture from one of my landlady's other properties was delivered tonight.  It is huge and ugly, which means it probably won't be stolen :)  Despite the lack of attractiveness in the table and chairs I like it and it will be incredibly handy next weekend when we throw our first party at this house to celebrate SnuggleBunny's birthday!

Beautiful! I get so excited when Micah's butterfly plants bloom. So glad the plants have held up so well to the move.

Just catching up here after my trip. Sorry to hear about the strenous times but oh-so thrilled to see the lovely blooming bushes. Hope they're still going strong and surround you every day. xo
