sunday afternoon in the garden


It’s been a gorgeous spring, and we’ve tried to spend as much time as possible at the garden. I like to go in the mornings, but I’m happy to find time whenever I can to get over there. This was a weekend of handing off children – E and M went to the Indy 500 with Grandpa, and Grandma came here for a quick visit.

The irises are fading, the garden is green and lush, and the Lantern Festival has started. The colors in the garden are stunning – both the silks and the flowers. I could move in and be happily at home.

We’ve got a whole week to ourselves while the girls are at Camp Grandparents. A change of schedule and routine is a great way to kick off a new season. It feels a little bit like stolen time. Kind of decadent, sleeping in til ten and late night dinners for two. Vacation-like. I was ready.
