Can you believe we are almost halfway through 2014? We survived the harsh storms here in Nashville this past week, thankfully. There has been a lot of rain but it's nice to see what the rain brings. I was potting flowers outside as the sun was going down and noticed that my knock-out roses have their first blooms! Each bush has one bloom and I'm so excited. My azaleas have popped out and are so refreshingly white. Even though spring brings a lot of things I don't like-allergies, tornadoes, working out for bikini season-it's beautiful to see new life and growth.
With a new month comes a new computer desktop calendar for you! Alison took this photo during her Mt. LeConte hike at sunset. It's so peaceful and reminds me that a fresh start in a new month should be peaceful.
