The Big Finale

Well, the beauty is coming to a screeching halt.  Our azaleas are bursting right now and I just love how it looks cause it makes our front door pop.  It is such a bummer to me that all this gorgeous stuff is just so short lived.

I really love this photo because it gets me excited that our ivy is finally growing!  I want so bad for it to overtake the front of our house.  I am crazy for that look.

It's been raining for a few days and everything is so beautiful and lush.  I so wish our lawn could stay looking this way.  Midway through summer, it's usually in drought mode and looking a miserable yellow.

Wisteria!  When I first moved out here I had no idea what this romantic lavender stuff was that would climb up trees and look so glorious.  It really is awesome.  We have several spots of it around our yard.  But--like I said, it's on it's way out.  It feels good to actually document some of this.  It'll give me happy thoughts next winter when I need something to look forward to.

You're house looks great. I love to see that wisteria in bloom. Wish it would have been in bloom when we were there.

Garbage, its all garbage. I am so annoyed I can't really even stand it. I love the ivy look too! We had it all over the side of our house, but "we needed new siding" so that all went to pot.

JK I am really excited to have a fresh new look though on our house. It should be really cute! Jon has worked SO hard. What a good guy.

Nick, can't you entice Jon and Jason to move out there for at least a while. COME ON! You haven't done me any favors lately. You owe me (and Jek)
