Springtime on the Hill

First, I want to share with you how thoughtful my husband can be. The other day, when he was close to a "computer store", he stopped in to get a new mouse for his computer. While he was in the area, he stopped by Hobby Lobby and had a look at what they had on sale. He felt bad that he had bought himself something that he wanted to pick a couple of things for me. Is that great, or what? :)

He thought this little box was "me", lol. I thought a couple of little flower pots might fit in there.

And this cute little table for my little green buddy! I have been sitting the pot on the window sill and he was afraid it might fall off one day. He's so sweet!!

And speaking of my little green buddy, look how pretty it's gotten! Oh....and what do I see...?

A baby green buddy!! :)

And I thought I would share a few pictures from the past week, spring is definitely in swing, no matter that we had flurries in the state later that week!

These guys have been popping up all over the hillside, I just call them "umbrella plants". :)

"And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

Matthew 6:28, 29

A nice azalea bush ready to burst into bloom!

The greenery is returning to the hillside.

Wild strawberries :)

The sun through the plum tree leaves

Not really sure what this tree is, but I like it :)

Just a little taste of spring on our hill in Tennessee. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!! :)


  1. Such beautiful flowers, and plants. Thanks for sharing sweetie. Your husband is definitely a keeper.

  2. You think your little green friend is a jade plant? That might be the healthiest one I've ever seen!!! (If it is.)

    Tennessee is beautiful. Do you have twisty, turny roads there? Kansas is laid out like a big grid, so curvy roads are the exception, not the rule.

    Thanks for sharing all of those pictures. I would not have thought your state so pretty!


  3. Pretty pretty! What a sweet hubby! :)

  4. Everything is so pretty! What a lovely post.

    You are definitely blessed with a sweet husband. :)

    Oh, and thank you so much for the blog award!

  5. What lovely photos, Mrs. Hester! Spring is such a wonderful time of year, and it sounds like you are enjoying it! :)

  6. Beautiful pictures. So springy! And how very thoughtful of your husband. Too sweet. He sounds like a very caring man.
    Blessings to you.
