:: Bugs & Blooms ::

A few ladybugs and lots of blooms! I went outside with our two youngest boys yesterday & grabbed my camera on the way out! You have to be quick…..blooms come & they go so fast.

Actually THIS was my first ladybug sighting, but this little lady decided not to stick around for a photo shoot! Blurry…..

I know, lots of pictures of these bushes, but I just think they are so pretty! We have three big ones along the side of our house.

My boys said, “hey Mom, that flower looks like a heart”! And they are so right, it does! Nature is truly beautiful!

Thank you for taking a walk around our house with me! Nature is beautiful but this kind of nature only lasts for a short time. Blooms fade & the ladybugs fly away! Glad I could snap some images quick!

Until next time, take care.

  3. Oh, those must be hydrangeas. They are my favorite. Your bushes are so beautiful! Our lilac bush is starting to bloom, but not like yours. Gorgeous color! I bet it smells lovely too!

  4. Hi Sarah, I love your items. I want to thank you so much for the beautiful Hydrangea pictures. The ladybug is adorable. I just love them. I have that bad Bronchitis that is going around and this really brightened up my day. Thanks again.
