Successful day of planting!

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 Winking smile (I figured I needed a yellow flower to bring out the “flame” in our Mountain flowers!)

Happy Earth Day!

Plant a tree, kiss a tree or hug a tree today!  Love our Earth like it’s our best-friend!

Circle of life!

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 Smile

Practice makes perfect!

Annika wrote her full name for the very first time today!  She’s been practicing her letters a lot and proudly wrote her name all by herself!  So proud of our little girl!

Look what we found on our walk today!  New fun chairs to relax on in our backyard park/trail/tree space.  Love our neighbourhood!
