In case there was any question on the matter, not that there would be, I will now clarify it for you: I am a bit of a nerd. I know you're probably shocked at my assessment. However, I have learned to accept it and, with time, hopefully you will be able to as well.
Why am I a nerd? I am borderline [completely] obsessed with the numerous varieties of flora adorning my back yard. And front yard. Whenever I discover there is a new blossom or a new green growth or whatnot, I call my mother (because Justin has a hard time pretending to care) and squeal with excitement at my discoveries. And I will now share them with you.
This is my Kwanzan Flowering Cherry.
I mean just LOOK at these babies!!! Oh my gosh I think I'm in love.
And yes, you've seen this before. But not like THIS. My Japanese maple. Fully leafed and proud of it.
Ok and yes. You've seen this before, too. BUT not close up. And it's just so adorable that it makes the front page of my blog twice this spring. (The Aubretia growing on my waterfall.)
And my most recent discovery made me squeal in a mousey-like voice saying "OH MY GOSH THEY ARE SO CUTE!!!!!"
I think they are crocuses. They're a bit taller than ones I have seen, but I can't think of what else they would be. Any thoughts?
All I know is that if I wasn't completely in love before, I sure as hell am, now.
And if that isn't enough excitement for one day, here's more. Kennedy is learning how to roller blade. My sweet grandmother let Kennedy take a pair home from her house and so we went out yesterday and she tried them out. She had a blast.
It's finally been warm enough outside to actually enjoy it! I love springtime.
p.s. I have a whole bunch of Kennedyisms ready to come your way. If the laundry fairy comes to my house maybe I'll have time to do it this weekend. Oh- the laundry fairy had better call the bathroom fairy and the floor-cleaning fairy, too. Hm...
