{almost wordless} Small Beauty #ww

My daughter took this pretty photograph of a chive blossom. I think it’s just beautiful! I love the softness of it.

I snapped a quick picture of this tree in our yard. Our landlord let us hang a rope swing {or two} in it several years ago. It’s been lonely over the winter but I know this summer when I’m looking for Pie, she’ll be out there swinging and gazing up at the sky through the branches.

And, here are my poor raised beds waiting to be planted! Hopefully I get my seedlings into their beds before the weekend and then I’ll share some photos of nice pretty gardens instead of weedy ones! I can’t wait for fresh tomatoes, yum!

Happy Wordless Wednesday! {well, almost}

    That’s what a flower from a chive plant looks like? That’s so pretty! Wow, that’s the difference between where we live – there’s no way we could rent a property like yours! Just a small two-bedroom apartment in our area is some $1800-$2000 and NONE of them with yards like that!

    I love the photo your daughter took – it’s amazingly beautiful. In an achy-sort of way, if that makes sense. Good luck with the garden :)
