It is Spring Break here at the House of Chang. Long anticipated and anxiously awaited by at least 3 out of the 4 members in our family. We've got nothing special planned and hope to take all week to enjoy this fact. Too often our schedules get filled with so many places to go and things to do, that it will be a welcome change to look at the boys and say "what would you like to do today?"
And not only is it Spring Break on the calendar, but looking out my new kitchen window, each day I am greeted by yet another garden surprise. You have to realize that although I am a Martha, I have the brownest thumb out there when it comes to cultivating and nuturing plant life. My hope is that I can just sustain the plants and flowers that our previous owners so lovingly put together. I've enlisted the help of a good friend who although works as a stay at home mom these days, has a bachelor's degree in botany. She assures me I can manage the level of gardening involved. And just in case, she's promised to stop by every so often and make sure I'm doing things right.
But, I'm not making any promises. Instead, I'm trying to take lots of pictures. Who knows, this might be the only Spring where I get to enjoy these flowers because I'll mistake them for weeds and pull them out after they have finished blooming! So, sit back...and enjoy the beauty of Spring. I know I am sure will this week....
