I wanted to document one of the things I love about Montana. The Winter's are quite hard here and seem to last so long! So, when the Winter finally surrenders to Spring, it is so welcome and beautiful and appreciated. What I have grown to look forward to the most are the blossoms on our lilac bushes. The fragrance is absolutely intoxicating, I wish it lasted for more than two weeks. So, tonight I allowed the boys to pick some and Jay started throwing them at my feet so I could pretend I was a princess. I said to Jay "thank you honey." He said "thank you for calling me that, mommy." (insert melted heart here) A moment later Charlie wanted to put some flowers in my hat. I told Charlie "thank you honey," he said, "DON'T CALL ME THAT!" (insert reality check)
My Tulips finally came up! Three to be exact! I put down bonemeal and all! I really don't know why they are decreasing in number every year? I thought they were suppose to increase each year? I don't know what these are called but they are doing quite well in our rock filled flower beds.
Riley took these pics of our dandelions that are a plenty in our fields. I think she made them look almost pretty!
We have two Crabapple trees in our backyard and they are blooming now and are so pretty!
This is a picture of our wild Asparagus that we LOVE SO MUCH! It only grows for about four weeks out of the year and it puts "Stuff-marts" Asparagus to shame!! All the kids love it! Jay and Charlie eat it raw! I like it cooked in butter or EVOO or if I'm feeling naughty Bacon juice with a little garlic salt. There is not much better on a plate!
These are our honeysuckle bushes that are growing wild. Love them and they smell so wonderful!
