On one of our of our wonderful drives
my husband spotted some some beautiful wildflowers.
They grew on a steep hill
where a landslide had once been
He climbed the mountain and picked them
roots carefully intact,
They stayed in pristine condition
they were confined to a pot
and placed in perfectly balanced potting soil.
They are starting to come back
but will most likely remain small and be used as garden filler.
Had we left them alone they would have flourished
taken over the hillside
and shared their beauty with the world.

The Creator

I am the creator
of my future
of my past
of my surroundings
 of my children
of my family
Some may credit my creations to the unknown
but I know
that in my life
I am the creator

Almost Summer

Elly enjoying some time to herself in the beautiful American Fork Canyon
As the days get warmer my family tends to wander
with so much beauty surrounding us it is hard to keep ourselves contained indoors
we breathe in the sunshine
we bask in the shade
we enjoy the moments together
and cherish our time alone
and dream about what will come tomorrow

Beautiful May

Unfortunately I took no pictures (not a good intro to a post I know..) but some will surely be on there way. We are halfway through May and all of my gardens are started. Gardening is the perfect way to waste away an afternoon. Today I started my plot at the community garden  to provide us with an endless supply of summer vegetables  (and provide badge opportunities for the girl's daisy troop).  Th boys kept themselves busy with some puddles, sticks and rocks and were forced to disrobe before coming inside of the house.
   In addition to the vegetable garden I received several hydrangeas for Mothers' day, which have made their home on the back patio (they are my absolute favorite flower). Last, but not least We have a cluster of six rose bushes in the backyard, under which I have pruned a tunnel for the boys to play with their trucks (out of sight and in the shade). It may be one of their favorite spots. I will soon post pictures of these favorite places. With school winding down we will undoubtedly spend more time outside in the gardens and exploring.
