Gardening, plants, flowers, digging in the dirt … I love it all. There is just something exciting to me about planting a tiny little seed and watching it grow and grow and grow until it is blooming!  It was a major bummer to be away from my gardens at home for the last year but while I was away I managed to go to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens to get my gardening fix.  I went with Joel when he was visiting one weekend and he even enjoyed it!  The Botanical Gardens in Birmingham was more forest-like than others I’ve been too but it was lovely! Great weather, great light, a great weekend.

Please excuse my extreme pastiness! This was from early, early this Spring…and I hadn’t yet seen any sun.  Wow am I bright shade of white!
