A Perfect Equation

There is this really awesome formula that I have discovered and I thought I would share it with the world. I don't think you're ready for this jelly...but I'm gonna tell you anyway.

Nap Time * (Beautiful Weather + Spring Flowers) = Camera Time

Mind blown, amiright?! Yeah, you're welcome.

I am all about making an efficient use of time {stop laughing, all of you who know me in real life!} so when both of my boys and my grandmother went down to rest during our visit, I took the opportunity to wander. I know her property like the back of my hand, but it is amazing the new discoveries I make every single time I go exploring. This excursion was all about the flowers. They are out in full force and just begging for their portraits to be taken. I was happy to oblige.

I don't know about you, but this is just about the coolest onion I have ever seen.

Again, the bloomin' onion. Hey look, ma! I made a funny!

My grandmother loves her plants and flowers, but there are some that seem to pop out of nowhere that she hasn't even had the opportunity to enjoy since they are in the field above. That is a little far to walk and generally isn't a trek made by her. So I decided to take some shots so that hopefully she can enjoy them even without the hike.

There are quite a few blooms surrounding her house that have been there for years and return every spring to greet us when we visit. Some are intentional. Most are not. I love them all equally.

Somebody was hungry.

A yummy snack is always in order on a warm spring day.

This lean-to shed houses some of my grandfather's {and great grandfather's} farming tools. It has been around since a teenaged Methuselah built it but I have never explored it for fear of snakes and spiders...and tetanus. So I decided that this was the time to brave the place. Alone. Because I'm brilliant.

I am going to go ahead and proclaim my love for this shot - not because I actually love it, but because this is the reason that I risked my life in the shed. I could have died in there and this is all I have to show for it this is the reason why. Oy!

This place seriously never disappoints in blooms. You can't walk five steps before spotting something beautiful to feast your eyes upon. I am so thankful that we get to experience it first hand whenever we want.

Neiner, neiner.
