May Flower Update

The timing is great right now to be outside and enjoying all the flowers.
Mrs. Desiree bought this mother-of-thousands plant and I have planted some of its babies. I hope it doesn’t take over my yard!
These beautiful roses are growing all over the ditch banks in South Georgia right now. I was prepared to go dig some up off the dirt road only to discover I had some around one of the pine trees in my yard. I didn’t even see them bloom last year!
I have magnolia blossoms all over my trees now! I love the smell of a magnolia. I try to take note of when they’re blooming. Sami has always said she wants a wedding full of  big smelly magnolias so I want to make sure the dates line up for when she plans a future wedding!
Aunt Faye’s clematis is gorgeous climbing up over a wagon wheel! I told her I definitely want to do one of these on each side of my driveway.

Wyatt brought home a flower pot for me he made at Doodlebugs for Mother’s Day. I love it and it was immediately the perfect place to plant my ranunculus bulbs. Hopefully I’ll have big beautiful blooms  like these soon.

My hydrangeas have put off their first blooms of the season as well. I think these are some of my favorite flowers!

In the garden, things are looking well. We have baby green tomatoes starting to grow and the bell peppers are forming as well.
Justin, Wyatt, and I spent a few hours last Sunday digging all of the potatoes from the garden. We ended up with 121 pounds of potatoes from our <50 pounds of seed potatoes. We shouldn’t have to buy any for a whole year!

I got the prettiest succulent from my in-laws on Mother’s Day. It’s like a morning glory—it only opens up during the sunlight hours. It’s nice hanging in our bay window right now!
