Outdoor Wednesday

Pictures of spring happenings in our neck of the woods!


We finally got part of our garden in. It has been so wet here, we weren't able to work the ground before now. I can't wait to harvest my first radishes and lettuce leaves. M-m-m-m-m!


I love the flowers of spring! My Flowering Almond bush is one of my favorites (above). And I love looking out my kitchen window and seeing this OLD apple tree in my back yard.


One last spring picture....


I love this picture of my daughter and son, flying a kite earlier this spring. We all went to the big hill in the field north of our house and enjoyed the blue sky, warm sun and spring winds.

  1. I'M SO SORRY!!! I visit your blog daily, but I didn't realize I hadn't left a comment. I enjoy reading your blog and hope your back is healing.

    By the way, I love your photography. What kind of camera do you use??

  2. that is not a garden that is HUGE!

    love the pictures. in the picture of your children, it is evident how much they look like you. even though you can only see your son from the side - i can see you in him.

    hope you are feeling better!

  3. Those are beautiful! I'm so glad you were able to get your garden going!

  4. my husband upgrades my camera for me every couple Christmases, and I'm just beginning to figure out some of the settings. by the way, your 4 favorite movies are some of my absolute favorites too :)

  5. Wow, that flowering almond tree is a real stunner. I don't think I've ever had the pleasure of seeing that tree before. I love you 'old' apple tree too!!! Really nice photos, and good luck with your garden!

  6. The flowering almond tree is so beautiful. Does it have a scent?

  7. Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday Jenn! I am so glad you joined us! I love the flowering almond bush. I wonder if I could get it to grow in Georgia... it is a beauty! Thanks for sharing your photos.~ Susan

  8. The Flowering Almond doesn't have much of a scent, but it makes up for it with all the beautiful blooms. Each branch is just loaded. Plus it has sent up some shoots that I have been able to dig up and transfer.

  9. You live in beautiful God's country. That's the way I like it. City folks have no idea what all they miss out on. I want to come and drink lemonade with ya! LOL.

  10. Jenn,

    Your pictures are just beautiful. I love the Flowering Almond!

    Your kids really love the country, don't they? It looks like they are just having a ball!!

    I bet your garden is a lot of hard work, but worth it's weight in gold. I hope you post pictures of it as it grows this summer!

    Have a wonderful week, Jenn! :-D


  11. Hi Jenn,

    Thank you so much for visiting with me and for your sweet comment. I just love the photos you took, the Almond Bush is beautiful and the pic of your son & daughter is gorgeous, your children are adorable. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Have a wonderful day filled with our Lords Beauty.

  12. Oh, my goodness, compared to me teeny tiny plot of ground, that looks like a FIELD! Love it! You'll have to post a pic in late summer when everything is flourishing and huge.

  13. your flowering almond is of my favorites in the spring as well.
    my apple tree only had a handful of blossoms this year....very disappointing!
    i'm always excited to meet other homeschoolers. i'm off to wander on your past posts now.
    have a great day. so nice to meet you.

  14. Note to Self: Buy an apple tree.

    Can't wait to see your garden in all of its summer glory!!

  15. Awww to have a garden. I am so jealous! I had hoped to have one this summer but just can't get out and do all the work with expecting a little one soon. I can't wait to hear about all the good stuff you make with your fresh veggies! I've missed reading your blog Jenn but now I hope to keep up more often. By the way, can you send me the info on pain mngt for natural childbirth again? Thanks!

  16. That picture of your kids with the kite is so beautiful!!! It's going to mean so much to both of them.

  17. That almond bush has amazing blooms. I just love that. How hard is it to grow and harvest almonds? Hope you had a good weekend, still praying about that back :)

  18. Gorgeous photos.....gorgeous garden!
