Rhoddys in Bloom

 One of the neatest things about our first spring in the new house is discovering all of the flowering plants in our yard.   Ever week there is something new in bloom.  At first I was  overwhelmed by all the work that needed to be done,  no one had touched the yard  in years and it was extremely overgrown.  I didn't know where to start so therefore I simply didn't.  Thanks to my husband who did an amazing job clearing out a ridiculous amount of unwanted vegetation, I now see the light at the end of the tunnel.  We have been rigorously working in the yard on the weekends and were able to host our first BBQ last weekend.

Chacos, a summer staple.  They might not be the most stylish but they sure are comfortable.  I have a pair in brown and black so I can wear them with everything.
