Annika helped mommy all afternoon plant the pretty flowers and cedar tree we bought. Don’t think we could have celebrated Earth Day any better!
We planted some pretty flowers around our Cypress
…and two new pretty pink Tulips to add a touch more pink to “BJASE’s Pink Sanctuary” – a garden dedicated to my moms and baby girls.
(BJASE aka: Breanne, Janet, Annika, Selena & Elena)
And finally this new Cedar at the front!
This pretty purple “Mountain Phlox” has, of course, a sentimental meaning to us Loarings – this flower’s origination is in the mountains of Greece (Phlox means “plant of glowing colour,” literally translated as “Flame” in Greece). This flower caught my eye, and I couldn’t leave the nursery without it (I didn’t know the meaning until I read the label when I got home).
This yellow lily looks beautiful beside it’s purple neighbour (I figured I needed a yellow flower to bring out the “flame” in our Mountain flowers!)

This afternoon we discovered a pretty little, perfectly built nest sitting beside our front door. I’ve been noticing two busy little Robins in our yard the past couple of days, and low and behold they chose our house to make their house! They must sense my love of spring and gardening! Maybe it’s our nanas’ in heaven way of saying hi. What a special little treat we get to witness for the next while
