Blooms + Buds

What a week! I got "the cold" and was pretty busy at work which is a very good thing. Not the cold part, but the being busy. Even though I missed a day and a half of work, I was still very happy to have a new weekend to catch up on things.

My latest focus has been learning about shade-loving plants so that we can get a nice privacy shrub line going between us and the "ugh" neighbors. This morning I went out and took photos to send to my dad (gardener extraordinaire) so he can give some suggestions on how to do that properly and have organization to it all. I have no idea about all the details for planting, pruning, retaining, etc. My dad offered and I am jumping at the chance to get some help.

While I was outside today I saw a few things that really make me happy...

These sweet white blooms on a new Rhododendron that we planted along our driveway last year.

And these little buds on surrounding trees. When they grow in they make all the neighbors disappear! Magical :)

I've not been feeling too inspired in the realm of illustrating but hopefully soon.

Thanks ladies :)

I had no idea what color the blooms on the new rhody would be and was happily surprised.
