Teacher Appreciation Gifts

The school year is quickly coming to a close.  The teachers at my boys' preschool are absolutely wonderful.  This year I decided to make them all some bracelets as a token of my appreciation. 

I went for fun and colorful beads that could be enjoyed this summer. When time allows I plan to make some for myself.

In Bloom May 2015

I am excited that warm weather is finally here.  I have been enjoying the perennials blooming around the house and planting some annuals that I hope will take off this summer.  Here is a sample of what is "in-bloom" around the house.

At the front door, I started a pot of "Coleus" and "Begonias".  For an extra pop of color, I added a bright new floral door mat found at "Lowes".

The Rhododendrons look the best I have seen them in years.

Lastly, I planted purple "Wave Petunia's" in the boxes on the deck.  I am hoping these take off in a nice trail down the side.

What is blooming around your house?  I would love to hear.
