My friend has a very tranquil plot of land surrounding her home. It's lush and rambling and feels as if every plant and flower sprouted unconsciously to beautify the garden. It doesn't have that planned feel like when a fancy landscaper digs up the earth and rearranges everything to make it look "natural". I took some closeups of my favorite little spots this afternoon and I'll follow up with more of the whole garden next month.

The other day I met a young woman named Erin walking her dog. Erin was very friendly and seemed the creative type so I wasn't surprised when Erin told me she owns her own floral design studio with an eco-friendly flower farm right here in Westport. I was surprised however when Erin told me she planted 4000 tulip bulbs in her tiny backyard! Of course I had to run over and take some pictures. Here is a sample of her gorgeous and varied tulips. I am hoping to stop by often to check out what's going to bloom next!
Here is the tiny garden.

I love spring trees. Every year they are the first burst of color to remind us that winter is over and bright sunny days are on the way. This year is no exception except for the fact that the trees have blossomed a month early. I didn't even get to take a pic of the grand magnolia trees around town because they came so early and left in a hurry. Here is a sample of what I did get. I'm still waiting for the cherry blossoms in front of the YMCA. I love how they brighten up the entrance to Main Street.
The best trees in Old Hill. They are gorgeous in every season.

Every bit of makeup and toiletry she owns is covered!
The coveted hairdryer!
April Fool's! :)
Wait until she goes into her bedroom and finds her laptop wrapped up tight! Shhh!
