around the garden - early June

This spring's been pretty full, first with the garden landscaping (by ourselves), then with my mom moving to her brand new place. Both things are done, but both of them have been time consuming.

I don't know about you, but I haven't been able (both physically & mentally) to do more than a handful of things at the same time. Taking care of the house, the boys, the garden, the food, the laundry, and my mom, have been all I've been able to do at once. My creativity has suffered a lot, and I now can't believe it's been almost 10 months since we've moved here ! We have taken care of so many things since we arrived, that time has been flying by !

Anyway. Let's go to the point. Here are some photos from the garden, taken today, June 06th, on my hubby's 42nd birthday ! First my Nandina, which I bought last autumn & that was half its current size. It's its first time blooming, and I can't believe how intricate the buds & the blossoms are !

I also wanted to show you the Buddleia that is starting to bloom ! We bought it early this spring, and I'm glad that it adapted just fine (we had a second one), and that it's blooming right now. I can't wait to see all the butterflies & insects that it is supposed to attract !

Isn't it just lovely ?!

I hope this blog post finds you all happy & healthy ! Thanks a lot for stopping by ! Visit again soon for more garden loveliness !!
