Summer is here!

It's 80 something degrees now outside and definately swimming weather! Bentley and Allison came over yesterday afternoon and we took the kids across the street to the neighborhood pool. I forgot to take my camera unfortunately. I'm thinking about taking her back over there in a little bit so I'll have to remember my camera. I've really been missing our "old" house lately. Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons of the year. I've really missed planting hundreds of flowers in my 10 flower beds at the old house and I've missed our pool! I loved sitting out on the back porch and listening to the water fall on the pool and looking at all of my awesome flowers. One of the first things I do when I wake up is open all of the blinds. The whole back side of our old house were windows. I can't tell you how many times I would walk through the house and look out the windows to see my crystal clear pool and all of the color from my flowers. Now, I look out the back windows to see a wooden fence and apartment buildings. While we have been very blessed to be where we are, I still miss my old house. I'm very thankful for the positive outcome of a rough time in March! I was telling Allison yesterday I don't know what we would have done if we hadn't sold our house when we did.

Hopefully we will be able to have a pool at our next house. For the flower beds, those are a must, but if they aren't already there at the next house, I will make them!

I forgot how well you garden. The flowers look great. Where did you guys move?

Those pictures were of my flower beds last year at our old house. We moved to Bellafont Gardens in Fayetteville. We are going to start looking for houses soon. We sold our house and moved in less than 2 weeks so we had to find something temporary.
