Sips of the South...Southern Gardens


This is Sweet Tea & Biscuits' last post in the Sips of the South series...sniff sniff. But it's an appropriate one, because I think Spring has sprung! (Now watch it snow a foot next week.) The topic this week is Southern Gardens. Now being the allergy cursed woman that I am, I am not one of those women who love to get out in their yard and plant lots of flowers. I love to have them, look at them and enjoy them, but not put in the work of planting them. Luckily, the people who lived here before us put some work into the flower beds and these are my two favorite things that bloom in my yard.

Bunches of yellow daffodils:
And the beautiful pink azalea bushes around my home:
I definitely want both of these planted at my new home, along with some

Hydrangeas:
and a Magnolia Tree:
These flowers make me smile...as long as I don't have to plant them (then they make me sneeze).

On another note...the lovely author of Bad Mommy Moments has shared the touching story of a mother who is battling breast cancer at the very young age of 27. After reading about her story, I thought, "This could be me." CK has provided a link to her website where you can learn a bit more about her and make a donation if you wish.

  7. Thank you so much for linking to Nicole's post. And for donating. You have such a wonderful heart!

    And about that Magnolia tree...just an FYI (though you probably know this already). Although they're lovely, it snows blossoms every spring and it's like wading through wet silk just to get through the yard.
