There are many things at home make me look forward to coming home everyday. Especially this time around a year, there is always something going on (good and bad) in the yard. Flowers make me surprise and smile. When I get out to the yard, some unexpected colors in green catches my eyes. "Oh, you are finally blooming. Great job!" Especially when I find one recovered from Chuck's attack, I just cannot help getting excited.
Most of the perennials are having the first year this year. They are not as full as they are expected to be. But, as long as they have some blooming, they give me some home for next year. Even annuals could come back next year with more buddies. I just celebrate their first season with them and enjoy their colors and forms.
