Dear Dogwood,

Dear Dogwood, Yoshino and Weeping Cherry, Thank you so much for showing signs of life this week, we welcome your blooms with open arms!  Has Spring finally sprung?  I think so. Much love. Green vegetation is coming back and I am so excited!  The clematis is climbing, the rose is shooting, and a big sigh…

  • My peonies are poking through, but we are in the midst of torrential rain. Looking forward to sunny days! PS: I’m calling you tomorrow.

  • I seriously cannot get enough of Cherry trees, I love their shape, their blooms, everything. So gorgeous. My goal this year is to get some planted right at the entrance of our property, very dramatic entrance in a few years!

  • I LOVE spring and am so excited to see green peeping through all the brown!

  • Oooh, these are lovely!! I’m scrolling back up to stare at the first one again.

  • Karen

    Yeah for spring, green and some beautiful shots. 200 bulbs? Curious what they are and where they are going. I guess I will wait and see.

  • shaunte

    I was driving yesterday and loving the blooming dogwoods. Beautiful!

  • I planted 96 bulbs this last fall. It was some work because I the weather was so cold already by the time it was ok to plant. The one day that would have been good I was too busy. They are fun to see this right now though. Good Luck!

  • Wendy Robertson

    Gorgeous!!!! Can’t wait to see all those beautiful blooms in the future!!! 200 Bulbs, wow!

  • Tami

    What a pretty girl!

  • Quincy

    I love this girl. Although I have to say, she looks like a beautiful woman now. There were so many shots that I love, but a few of the black and whites looked better than any model in any magazine I’ve ever seen.

  • Dana

    Seriously beyond description. Really…can’t find an adjective good enough. Amazing work, friend.

  • Natalie

  • Dani

    Wow! You did a great job Kim 🙂 All of these pictures are amazing!


Grant did his own hair this morning and asked for the tie pin put in.  He proudly looked at himself in the mirror and said happily, I think I look a lot like Dad today.  Yes, I said, you are very handsome! And have I mentioned how much I love this boy…and his dad? Grace’s…

    I love your Sunday pics! And yes, he looks a lot like his handsome daddy (and his beautiful mommy)!!

  • I love the hairstyle! I Grace’s little pink dress and jacket look very cute on.

  • Grace’s dress and matching coat are so adorable. Kind of a mini sweet Jackie O style? Grant sounds like such a character. I love it.

  • Quincy

    This Sunday post had me chuckling–it must be Grant’s yukalaylee!

  • Alisha

    So impressed with the spelling of yukalaylee! And, that Grace didn’t have chocolate all over her at church. 🙂

  • I think I might do just about anything for some DARK Dove chocolate too!
    These shots are hysterical. Shows SO much personality.

  • I love that slick willy hairdo….and yay(!) for being warm enough for a sleeveless dress.

  • Charity

    Grace’s outfir is adorable and Grant looks so handsome in his seersucker suit! Love it!

  • Charity

    Oops – that is supposed to say “outfit”. he he

Guess who’s two today?

Happy Birthday Grace Ann! While in Oregon we had a little party for Grace.  She was so excited about the cake and had to show everyone several times throughout the day.  We celebrated Gracie style with pink, vintage and bubbles.  The cake was made by Nana-Grace’s grandmother, the cake plate was Mimi’s-Grace’s great grandmother, Mimi…
