~ Happy Earth Day!

We celebrated Earth Day by planting two little pine trees and paying a visit to the local nursery to check out the flowers.  Thankfully I was able to snap a few pictures of the gorgeous colors at the nursery. =)  It’s funny, I don’t ever receive flowers.  My no-frills Filipino mother always told me that flowers die, so why get them?  (Aw, mom, but I like flowers!) 

Anyway, to compensate for my “lack of flowers,” I love taking pictures of them.  It seems that flowers have taken over my blog this early spring! =)  My hubby tells me I like to take pictures of still objects because it takes so long for me to snap each shot.  Yeah, I guess that’s true.  I take my time and deliberate just about every shot.  (Heaven forbid we’re in a hurry!)

The hands in the pot are those of my hubby and my 9 year old son.  I’ve never really been good with plants but I’m hoping these little pine trees make it.

  5. I too love flowers and my husband use to say the same thing as your mom but after many years I have changed his mind. It is nice having something living in the house even for a just a few days.
