The countdown continues: 4 days left in the spring 2013 semester. I’ve made surprisingly good progress on my project. I’ll still work on it allllllll weekend, but there shouldn’t be any tears involved. I’m pretty pleased about that!
By the way, my project is about writing for social media, and the company I chose for my project is Fabric.com. Social media + fabric: let’s just say I’ve had a lot of distractions while working on this one! A lot. Not “alot,” though, just so we’re clear.
Anyway, while I slave away on my paper (whine whine), here are some pretty pictures of plants for you to enjoy!
(Can you tell how much I love these pink fluffball blooms? It’s so fleeting but so beautiful. I think I took these photos 2 weeks ago, and now they’re gone.)
Kwanzan cherry // hosta // lorepetalum // Lady Banks rose // Harry Lauder walking stick // more Lady Banks (it’s a climbing rose!) // star of Jerusalem. And still head-over-heels in love with my camera.
I’ve reached the last 2 weeks of this semester of grad school, and that means there is an official ban on having fun of any kind until my project is finished—which will probably be 11:59 pm on the day it is due, if I’m being honest. You know what else the end of the semester means? I’m super inspired to do housework. Cleaning the floors is so *productive* that I couldn’t possibly feel bad about it, and it suddenly sounds really appealing because it’s not writing a paper. Ridiculous.
In other news… my garden has been truly coming to life over the past few weeks, and I am in love with it. Every day, I’m walking through the garden with my camera, taking yet another picture of cherry blossoms or bluebells or star of Jerusalem. Watching everything turn green sets my heart aflutter. Springtime is magic.
While I’m off being super-productive (hopefully), I thought I’d share some of the hundreds of photos I’ve taken over the past few weeks. I’m planning to post a few photos a day for the next few days. I hope you enjoy taking a walk with me through my magic garden…
We’re starting our walk a few weeks ago, when it was still cold enough to wear socks.
The cherry trees were just starting to bloom, but not much else was turning green yet.
The snowdrops were still blooming then. I love these tiny delicate flowers. They are the first responders of springtime in my yard.
I thought the bluebells were beautiful then, but they were just getting started!
The hostas were just starting to peek up…
Back with more tomorrow. Lots more. XO.
