hello monday

Say hello to monday and the unlimited possibilities of a brand new week.

To start this week, I want to share a few bits of my backyard which is starting to come back to life.

A regular to our garden, he keeps us company. he often brings his friends along and they entertain us with their upbeat chirps.

another regular to our garden. I was planting herbs when he came to play.

i had to run around for a while before he finally sat down long enough for me to take this pic.

pretty tulips

i love this plant – lambs ears. he looks great in this spot so i decided to bring him a friend.

blue cascade and more tulips

Yesterday, we hired a U-haul and went to our fav plant nursery to bring home a weeping blue cascade. It is still young, so we can manipulate its branches. We also saw some amazing deals for trees at home depot so we got a weeping cherry, weeping willow, pear and cherry trees, a tall cypres and a blue princess holly to go next to our other two blue princess holly. A lot of planting ahead of us.

the new issue of lonnymag is out on their updated website. I’ll be sharing some of my fav bits from this issue with you in just a bit. Also, this month mochatini turns TWO!! can you believe that? to celebrate, I have a few (very seelct) giveaways coming your way starting tomorrow. stay tuned. Have a fab week ahead!


ps: the mac crashed again so i will add a couple more images as soon as it starts to behave.
