Little Fireworks for Flowers

Spring is starting to spring up in our very own backyard. 

Who would have thought that we would have bright little  flower buds popping up in the middle of our yard!?
Just one of the little adventures of moving to a new house, you never know what you are going to get!

I'm totally loving these bright purple ones with the orange centers! How fun are they!?! I wish they were big enough (and there were more) so I could bring some inside a put in a vase. These are only about the size of my thumb, I don't know exactly, they're small.

Now for my Fill In The Blank Friday fun:

1.   The phrase or punctuation I overuse most is       Definately something I use a lot is !!! But, I don't think there is anything wrong with being excited! :) Oh and I say "that's lame" a lot.

2.  Today I am thankful for    the fact that today is the 4th sunny day in a ROW!! It's gotta be a record for Germany, at least since we've been here   .

3.  My best friend is    Well, besides my husband, it's my friend Maggie who's been my best friend since like 4th or 5th grade   .

4.  A quirky thing about me is    I salt my food first and then I pepper it. I swear it tastes different, probably not really, but I still do it that way anyway .

5.  This weekend I     will be working on a custom painting for someone special, and enjoying Sunday off with my husband  .

6.  Something that worries me is        The fact that the gas/water company for our Omaha house told us that they've been estimating our bill for the past 3 years and when we had them come check the meter they told us that they would need to tear down a wall in the basement to get to the meter. Of course they never would come when we actually lived there and now that we're aren't there to deal with it, they need to tear down a wall? WTH?!? 

7.  On my night stand you would find       a lamp, my cell phone, chapstick, lotion, a hair twistie, and The Weight of Silence, the new book I started last night  .

Happy Weekend and Happy Spring!!


Pin It!

  2. a custom paining, wow, that sounds fabulous!
    Great fill in the blanks! I also participate so I am just strolling on in to show some love ♥

  3. These flowers are SO SO pretty!! I wish we had flowers coming up in our yard.. but it's still freezing cold here.

  4. It looks as if the previous residents must have done some naturalizing, meaning they tossed the bulbs and planted them wherever they landed. My middle son and I did that one fall. Such fun when they come up because I didn't make a map of it!

  5. Pretty flowers! :D

    And oh my goodness gracious with the water company thing! :O

  6. Ahh, crocus! They are a first sign of spring, but here in western New York it will be another few weeks before we see them. Yours are lovely, and bring hope.
