Signs of Spring

temperatures are creeping around the 80's
here in the valley of the sun.
which means...
it's time to plant the garden.
{this little guy was a great helper...because he loves the dirt!}

...and there are blooms on our plum tree.
{we lost several plants to the harsh freezes we had this year.}

...our backyard is complete.
and with temps like these...
we will be living out here.

isn't it fabulous???

...a sure sign of spring.
basking in the sun while playing with g. i. joe guys.

...and wearing shorts.
and flip flops.
and playing hooky to attend spring training games.
{which i hope to do with mr. c next week.}

it's a glorious time to live here.
{just don't think about any of our state leaders or politics.}

happy friday!

Mindy, I have been MIA for month, so I'm just catching up on your blog! I LOVE your patio/bar/living area!!! love, love, love it! Did u paint the barstools and bar? It looks aged or distressed and is just perfect! Did u make the curtains? I'm guessing they are weather-proof? Wonder if those would work here in Texas? You did a great job!
