Our backyard space...and my little bunny

We had a beautiful Easter weekend!  It was our precious boy's first birthday, so it was doubly special for us this year!  The yard was so green and so full of life, and I took what must have been hundreds of pictures.  We also enjoyed our back porch for the first time this spring. It's in desperate need of a coat of paint, but we love lounging out there looking at all the greenery and flowers. Thought I'd share a few of our pictures here.  Isn't my sweet baby boy just darling?

The Easter Bunny had been very busy hiding Easter eggs in our yard!
And they were placed ever so cleverly...just so little hands could pick them up and add them to Easter baskets.
Friends and family enjoying the back porch.
We have plenty of places to lounge.  Molly is enjoying her favorite place at the edge of the porch near the steps.
My personal favorite place to sit with a good book.
Love having this little place outside my kitchen door - a great place to enjoy coffee or a cup of tea.
My gorgeous clematis vine is outdoing itself this year!
These blooms are huge...breathtaking!

Our sweet boy enjoying his time in the yard. He hasn't decided yet if he likes the prickly grass.
Our baby, with the help of Daddy, found so many Easter eggs!
"I like the orange ones best, Mama!"
A smile that melts his Mama's heart.
My beatiful baby boy - my joy!
They look as if they may be discussing where that Clever Easter Bunny hid more eggs....such a serious discussion.

The side of our house with a view of the old well and our precious boy's new firetruck.  Ah, such sweet yard decor that is!
 Hope you're enjoying your spring days soaking up the sunshine in your own yard.  We are anxiously awaiting the peonies' bloom! So, stay tuned for more photos!

Happy spring!
