Anyone who knows me, knows I hate bugs. But nature in general- I love it.
Yesterday The Boy and I were out on the deck enjoying the afternoon. We got divebombed by two HUMMINGBIRDS! I had no idea that we had hummingbirds, nevermind that they divebombed! It was really cool to see them checking us out just as much as we were checking them out. My mom thinks they are a couple and perhaps have a nest nearby.
A short while later, we were running around the yard and I noticed movement in the grass. It was a little gardner snake, about 5 inches long. Cutest thing ever.
Anyways, I'm blessed by the nature that I have in my life now- the deer, the hummingbirds and the snake.
Here's some more photos of the house!
Kitchen on move in day:
We also have one rose bush. Here's a photo of one of the blooms.
And the other dying two.
And the beetle eaten leaves.
It really is a sad little rose bush. Next year, this is going to be my baby. I'm going to do everything in my power to make this thing into something beautiful. I do not have a green thumb at all, but when I saw the loveliness of that one bloom, I knew that I had to make it come back. I think it's too late (please tell me if I'm wrong!) for this season, but next year...it's going to be wonderful.
