Spring! and My New Anti-Laundry Plan

Now that the weather is lovely and warm, my new Anti-Laundry Accumulation Plan is to not put clothes on Benjamin unless it’s absolutely necessary.

This little boy has been just so sweet lately. Last month he was rather obstinate and ornery, I think partly due to my low energy because of the first trimester and the nausea that kept us cooped up inside. I’m still sleepy and pukey but we’ve been spending more time outside and he has been so precious, delightful, silly, and loving.

I’ve been meaning to take pictures of the beautiful wisteria, azaleas, camellias, and dogwoods that are blooming all over Tallahassee but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. Here’s just a little taste of the sights of Spring that Benjamin picked for me yesterday (his new favorite thing is picking flowers for Mama, it’s so cute and all his idea):

Suffice it to say that Spring has been so beautiful here that I haven’t even missed the Texas Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes that covered everything around our little farm last year:

Texas wildflowers are lovely, but Spring is just Tallahassee’s season to shine. I love living here.

Daniel’s garden is thriving.

We’ll have enough peas to start eating up any day now:

And so many different kind of Tomatoes are blooming!

Daniel’s raised beds are just so pretty.

But he has a lot of “help” in the garden from this guy:

Did I mention that he’s been on a painting spree? Sweet boy.
